Forbidden Fruit

when body and mind is peaceful
and one feels overwhelmed with joy
when life feels everlasting
you send me a boy?

30 metres in 17 degrees
north of Palm Beach
handsome men
rugged and strong
and the only girl, me
(not many women dive you see)

our skipper, young and handsome
flirting with me all day
told me
that he always ‘loved me’
for seven years said he

what does a girl do with that
I made a joke
him being so much younger than me

he told me his ex was older
suggesting he was into me

So I said…….
my husband was ten years younger
(tis true)
I threw back my hair and laughed (as you do)
and followed with a cheeky grin
‘I was 20 he was 10’

Bullshit of course
but he laughed and so did I

I groaned at the sight of his full lips
and erstwhile frame
Oh, my God, the shame
I think I actually wanted him

He said, you are so lovely
I would swim 100 miles for you
my body knotted at the words
biting back the reality
and knowing he could not be mine

maybe in another place
another time

he asked if he could be on standby
if where I was should fail
and I wonder…….
as he throws me down those crumbs
if I would ever follow his trail

Artist's Description

This may sound like such a narcisisstic write, but it just happened, and it blew me away to the point where I wanted to share. I am sure you have all been there too in many shapes or forms.

This is just a silly, girlie recount of the feeling.

Thank you for reading me x
