Forbidden Fruit

Just the sight of that juicy fruit
Makes me want to take a bite
But forbidden it is and I must resist
Fighting with all my might

From the first time I laid my eyes on it
I knew it should be mine
The desire in my heart for something so tempting
Makes me want to have it all the time

The color, the smell, even the touch
Makes my heart jump like it's on fire
The more I see it I want it to be
My most intimate and raw desire

But a forbidden fruit it will remain for now
Because it does not belong to me
From a distance I shall stand, admire and wait
Until it becomes free
