An Apple Unsweet

A Poem by Lost in Wonderland

I fell in love with a beautiful image,
Made of broken glass,
And hiding a devil inside.

I fell willingly into the darkness
Because he made it look light-
He was the light, rather the flame
That's swarming with swooning moths
Mesmerized by this heat
That makes us feel the most alive
Even when we are seconds from death

And somehow that drew me.
Loving you was stepping into a book
Where we- or you- made the rules.
It was a black hole in plain sight-
That swept me from the real world-
Where you were the serpent,
Your touch a red apple, bitter and sweet,
And I your Eve.
But you played a pretty savior,
To fool someone like me.

But now I'm breathing again,
Though it still comes in gasps.
And I sometimes wonder
If I didn't Leave my heart
Under the apple tree, 
With you in the grass.

Author's Note

Lost in Wonderland
Still grateful to God for getting me out of this-- He has the glory.
Wrote this on a whim as I saw his ex-girlfriend, and I'm tired/bored with nothing else on my mind but writing a poem.
Have a lovely day (or perhaps night)

Impressive outpouring of emotions… some very creative verses describing the hurt from love's betrayal.
