Forbidden Fruit

Red and juicy, 
sensual shape, 
sexual by nature, 
they drip promiscuously 
on my prurient lip!

Tastes of summer, 
girls in flimsy cotton dresses 
flirting shamelessly, 
and sinfully suggesting 
assignations in the park, 
in the darkness, for a lark!

Their flavors captivate, 
make me hunger 
for an intimate embrace!

    hmmm, which fruit is this? This is wonderful to read. Love those word choices. I can't even remember what prurient means but I sure like the sound of it.
