Insatiable Desire

The bowl full
Of rich red fruit
Against the pristine
White platform
Seem like an invitation
To dive in and
Succumb to temptation

Created to incite
It’s considered divine
Firm yet pliant
It’s tempting to grip
Immensely sweet
With a slight sour tinge

Shaped like the tongue
That shall consume
It acts as a symbol,
A perfect aphrodisiac
To a steamy interlude

Tongue on tongue
Becomes a raging duel
Igniting passions
Like a match to fuel

The sweet nectar
Drips down the edge
It fills the throat
But fails to quench
The thirst within

The combat continues
And destruction begins
The soft pulpy flesh
Melts within
And the joy of conquest
Adds to the flavour

And thus one devours
The fruit of temptation
Conqueror of the flesh
Conquest of the taste
Thirst finally quenched
Desire temporarily sated
Till the battle is fought again!
