Topic: Sweet to the Taste (08/23/12)

TITLE: Forbidden Fruit

There are many who pursue forbidden fruit but I am here to tell you I have tasted the sweet succulence of the forbidden and the price paid for my indulgence was beyond my comprehension.

I had everything - a glorious home, a loving husband, the perfect life. There was nothing I desired not at my disposal. I experienced luxury and leisure. Enjoyment and laughter. Simplicity and extravagance.

I did not understand nor had I experienced pain, heartache, or consequence. I did not know what it was to suffer nor did I have the desire to find out. But then I had a conversation with the wrong person and my world spun out of control.

Forbidden fruit is like that. You see it at a distance but it doesn’t draw you. But when someone else draws attention to it and starts your mind down that path you become mesmerized. Before you know it everything you thought to be true is second guessed. You take a closer look and you desire. Then you do the unthinkable - you take and your eat.

As the delicious juice dripped down my chin I knew, the world had changed forever because I desired the forbidden fruit.

I loved this. It was well-thought out, and well-spoken. It drew me in, and made me want more. I think, that was a bit of a problem though. It was like I had read the back jacket of a book and I thought, Yes! I want to read this. But there was nothing else to read.

Whether this is fiction or non-fiction, there is a great story here. A great message. I would love to see an expanded version of this piece.

WOW! Short, concise and to the point. Sin is like that.
Sin will take you
further than you
want to go.

Sin will keep you
longer than you
want to stay.

Sin will cost you
more than you want
to pay.
That is on my bedroom wall. I don't know who said it, but it is true and your story conveyed that perfectly.

I enjoyed this. It was short and to the point but you did a nice job of speaking for Eve.
