The Forbidden Apple.

Like a scaly, slithering, serpent
You sneak your way back into my life.
Trying childishly to coaxingly, communicate 
one more time.

I will listen to your tales told.
I will not be pulled in.
I am that not naive.
I’m numb.
I know the hateful and horrible things you do.
Afterall, look what you did to Eve.

    Glad you are no longer naive, Rachel. Some people try to take advantage of others who are good natured. See the "serpent" for what it is and, as you said, remember what it "did to Eve." Great poem! Love, Carolyn

    This will go good with a poem I read called Skeleton. It is about Eve I think.
