Ripe and red
The inside ready for tasting
Penetrating the inside with mouth, teeth, tongue,
juices overflowing from the fruit.
So innocent and harmless yet so dark on the inside,
red with desire.
Once tasted, so hard to return to the light.
Finding it’s sweetness that you never thought it would have,
yet so glad to remain in its dark red recesses
and succumb to the unearthly joy of the nether world
