Forbidden Fruit Poem by Pankajam Kottarath

Forbidden Fruit

Rating: 5.0


He counts the Yes
in her No's
with a teasing smile
and choose their trajectory
beyond the ‘outlawed'
rights and wrongs
which was termed so
in a momentary impulse
and lust affixes its signature of love
on the liquid hopes that are awake.
News of his overseas job
puckers her face into a frown
for the onus she alone owns
and she stands with charred dreams
bathing his gusto with her tears.
