APPLE OF HIS EYE

I was the apple of his eye,
Each time he looked at me,
His eyes would gleam and glitter,
I was not sure what went through his mind,
Each time he smiled when looking at me,
But I didnt mind,
I knew my tender to be kind.

I was the apple of his eye,
And he wanted me to be ripe,
He took care of me with queer jealousy,
At the moment it seemed an act so nice,
I would grow and he would show me off to the rest,
Saying that in all the apples on his tree,
I was his best, the apple of his eye.

I was the apple of his eye,
And as soon as I was ripe,
He wanted a bite,
He wanted to know how I taste,
He wanted to consume me,
He wanted to eat me all up.

I was the apple of his eye,
And suddenly the pride and satisfaction that filled his face when he looked at me,
Were replaced with a disturbing gleam of greed.
His bloodshot eyes,
His popped up veins,
His evil grin as he stretched his hand,
Reached up the tree,
Twisted, plucked and bit me...

Aah:(
Ate up half and threw the rest of me to the ground,
For me to rot,
He now knew how I tasted,
And that's all he wanted...from the apple of his eye.

    very interesting one. I like how you based it on that old saying apple of one's eye, but his actions sure did not live up to the meaning of that expression!
