My Eden Fruit

Location

Oh, tell me, tell me what could this be,

Could this be love that enthralls me

Not just any emotion

But confidence, affection, and devotion

Miles apart days away

But this love chiseled in my heart will stay

Wanting to grasp you close to me

But knowing I can’t oh why does this be

Caged, reaching out for you

So close and knowing you want this too

Illusions of love you and me

But knowing I have to hide this, irritates like a bee

Yet the one thing that keeps us together

Destroy us and will never untethered

Yet in the reserve of our alone

You hold me dear and no one is to have known

Infatuation in every stroke and every kiss

When we are apart I fantasize of this

This love is too herculean to waste

So far away yet close enough to taste

Longing to be with you all the time

Hungry for your heart to be one with mine

Take this hand and escort me to your ocean

Kiss me and fill me with your fragrant potion

One to make me winded make me weak

That one takes all there life to seek

And at this age I have rescued love

You were sent from a glorified spirit above

Every time I glance at your eyes so pure and blue

I lose my senses and want to be retained by you

Craving to be in your arms, be held so tight

Yearning praying begging with all my might

But I know this in no way will be

You and me at once for all to see

This, this, what it could be

For this is forbidden love that captivates me.

This is the first poem that I have ever written that was not a school assignment.
