Poem: Rotten Apple

What once was ripe

What once was nice

What once was right

Turned so wrong

Then on the tree

Fruit grew heavy

Taste so sweetly

I didn’t know

Hidden within

Flesh was rotten

Poisoned with sin

To steal my soul

Her soft hands picked

Her forked tongue licked

Then handed it

My open heart

The spell began

Turned the mind mad

Withered a man

A pile of dust
