Forbidden Fruit

a yearning for a lover who spits you out like a seed.

By Olivia MacbethPublished 14 days ago 1 min read
Top Story - May 2024

Forever suspended while you dance on my lips.

Opening our mouths

Removing the stem.

Begging to be consumed, crafted into a knot.

Infinitely spit out like a trick

Desire fades

Deception seeps in.

Enviable of their distance

Naïve to unspoken intentions.

muddled, we search for our cherry in a sea of Fantasy

________________moments dissolve the Ripeness



we carry on in a ____________________Trance


About the Creator

Olivia Macbeth

one swoop the wind picked up everything in it's path. the little worms that creep from the soil after it rains, the stranger who kicks their feet with childlike innocence. the quirky, horrific, intoxicating moments of life dance in my mind

    Congratulations on Top Story! 🥳 I've never seen an acrostic created like this and I love it. Might have to lean into that formatting myself! Loved your poem. Powerful twists and turned.
