Adam’s Apple

Red ripe is my fruit

Plump and bursting with resentment

Oozing remorse and regret

My pain Ready for you to harvest


I have waited patiently

For your uncontrollable urge

To feast upon my agony

And devour my shame


Your greedy appetite

For my suffering is insatiable

Feed your glutinous desires

As you sink your teeth deep

Into my cold flesh


Taste my bittersweet discontent

As you ingest my poisoned hatred

And choke upon the shards

Of my broken heart and shattered dreams


Now that you have consumed

The essence of my pain

I’m nothing but a hollow core

Return my ravaged remains

Back into the soil of Eden's garden


So that I may be absorbed

Back into the earth

And the seed of mans sins


Can now take root
