Forget the Tree of Knowledge

Forget the Tree of Knowledge
And the Serpent. . .
Because there is
No more of a bitter fruit;
The whole world over,
Than that of
The Tree of Unreturned Love.
Whose bud attracts then flowers,
To deceive with its mortal attraction.

It allows the spirit,
To tangle with the psyche and the physical;
(The soul with the mind and body).
Until like the torturous whipping
At a senseless pillar
Bringing such a loss,
Such a wasting of fates.
And your love of life is gone,
As is the love of your life,
As is your Point, your Reason, your Existence..
