Forbidden Fruit

Forbidden Fruit

A Poem by Alexis L. Thompson

I
Can't
Help
The way I feel about you.

Can't
Stop
The way I think about you.

I
Can't
Tell
You what I want from you.


What would they say?
What would they think?
How would he feel?
Is this even real?


It's unfair.
but such is life.
I decided 
to be his wife.

I want to tell you
that I still feel
the way I did then.
It seems so unreal.

I live with it now.
I let it enslave
my mind but I will 
take it to my grave.
