The Garden of Eden

One tree.
One fruit.
One bite.
The fruit-
it’s mesmerizing,
tantalizing,
probably delicious,
yet Forbidden.
Forbidden
But not locked away
Or hidden.
It will-
open my eyes,
and give me everything
I could possibly want.
I will be like God.
How can that be bad?
Its fragrance
wafts
everywhere.
I walk
s l o w l y
to the center.
where it grows.
The Tree.
With The Fruit.
That
One
Bite
Is all it takes.

Crunch

That’s the sound of the world shattering.
