Eden

Here in this Garden

All Needs are fulfilled

All Wants are satisfied

All but one

.

For here in this Garden

A tree does grow

Its fruit Forbidden

And it is this for which I Yearn

.

All else in this Garden

I may Feast on at my leisure

But not Fruit Forbidden

No, I am denied that Pleasure

.

Yet a Devil stalks this Garden

It knows I Desire that Fruit

It sees my frustration

Feeds off of my Temptation

.

I hear whispers around this Garden

Coming from all directions

Tempting me with that Fruit –

That which has been Forbidden

.

I am pulled around this Garden

The whispers leading the way

Closer to the tree Forbidden

To the source of my Temptation

.

Not real is this Garden

Not real is the tree

But real is the Devil

And the Desire inside of me

.

You are the Forbidden

The Fruit for which I Lust

And the Devil would see me taste you

And my Eden turned to Dust
