En Route To Hell

One folly
Just one time
I wanted to know the taste of pure surrender 

It was curiosity, ill-fated
But so tempting, I just couldn’t resist.

There’ll be the world to pay.
I will.
And keep the memory and the metaphor

“As beautiful as sin” 

I was Eve for a day. And Paradise, my temporary stop.

    life is beautiful and never sinful…what adds to it’s beauty is the fact that one never meets the same river twice…a dynamic in constant flow, evolving , mutating along the way..every moment, an experience..

    Does this mean you walked around naked in some Garden named Eden and offered Apples to men who could possibly have been nude?
