undressed fruit

A Chapter by Ana Papaya
"

.

"
i. 
sheathed 
in a thick skin
she shelters the fleshy softness
that lies within 

ii. 
nectar 
sweet as sin, it seeps 
teasing the tongue 
while a heart of stone weeps

She sounds strong, and proud, and compassionate, and delicious.
Equal parts of all those things.

while a heart of stone weeps, a mango undressed and apple is watching silently. How come? Maybe she shelters the fleshy softness
that lies within

Yours have been missed three and four and five :)
we do do this don't we, try and protect our hearts from hurts and loss... we harden our hearts, show only the strong exterior, and yet often who we really are (that sweet nectar of ourselves), still reveals itself only to be fooled again... it hurts to be treated badly, and often by someone who is supposed to "love" us or professes too...

it's a sad poem Ana, one I will read many times... and I must also say, I have missed reading your poetry and glad you posted these few today... I surely hope everything is good with you....

okay, good... now I am happy... YEAH ANA!!!!
Amazing use of words. Create powerful emotions and deep place. Use of the mango made the words come alive to the reader. Thank you dear friend for sharing your amazing poetry.

I love your work and you are welcome my friend.
I shall now give the mango total respect from now on.
Though the mango may be hiding something deeper.

Definitely will have a look!
I think it's perfect. We learn to protect ourselves but sometimes we just have to let some feelings out.

Good to see you. It's been awhile.
