The Forbidden Invitation

by Aleta Gantt
(Yakima, WA)

Slither to me
On the belly of desire
Serpent of lust
Burning like fire
Wrap all around me
And through every limb
Saturate my soul
Fill me within
Flesh in my Eden
Unintended to eat
Smooth like honey
But twice as sweet
Melts on my tongue
Bite after bite
Forbidden fruit
I cannot deny
