Forbidden Fruit

It is raw or
The ripen
Bitter or
The rotten

If the hunger is mad
The taste has not a virtue
The tongue is volatile 
To here and there

Escaped logic
Like a vagabond
Runs for the desire

Mind is blind
Having broken doors
Nothing to close or open
The heart is only a
Senseless organ

Udaya R. Tennakoona
