HUMAN NATURE

Is it Human Nature
To desire forbidden fruit,
To hunger for a blossom
So obsessed with passion
That we forget the pain,
Which inevitably arises
Once we tease ourselves
With the thought of it
Or taste a tiny part of it,
And it becomes the predator
Eating at us like a carnivore
That saves the head for last
Savoring the brain to feed its own
And we, still craving illicit nectar
Enjoying the fact that it is devouring us?
C.J Grant
