Forbidden fruit

Smooth against my lips,
her blushing skin
is tempting me
with vows of sweetness;
Her scent invites me with
a pledge to dare
to let me dip my cravings
deeper in the softness
of her floral flesh,
to fruition of her inner core
and that’s the reason
she’s been named
an apple,
a forbidden fruit.

Apples in a Basket on a Table Henri Fantin-Latour

Today we write about apples at dVerse with Anmol. Come join us in the orchard, I am sure he will serve Cider.

  1. Interesting, biblically, that an apple became the forbidden fruit; why not a fig? Your poem works like gangbusters, pure Bjorn–romantic with a twist.

  2. As they say, forbidden fruit always tastes sweetest, Björn. Your poem is so sensual, and I enjoyed the lines:
    ‘…let me dip my cravings
    deeper in the softness
    of her floral flesh,
    to fruition of her inner core’.

  4. Delicious writing, Björn!
    I loved this bit in particular: “a pledge to dare/to let me dip my cravings/deeper in the softness/of her floral flesh”. 🙂

  5. The more I read, the better your material is. I have covered lots of the other
    resources, like this on, only here,
    I have found valid information with such necessary facts to
    bear in mind. I suggest you will publish articles with various topics to upgrade our knowledge, mine in particular.

    The language is just another thing-just brilliant! I believe I have already
    found my ideal source of the most up-to-date
    information, thanks to you!
