Tree Of Sexual Knowledge
by CAT

You were a serpent
Wise, and crafty
Whispering in my ear
The most extraordinary lies…
You were like the apple
Sweet and FORBIDDEN…
Once I BIT of your essence
A myriad of colors
Assailed my sense
And pleasure
Like I’ve never known before
Left me quivering after you…
The simultaneous orgasm
Sounded like a fairy tale
Until…your cunning and craftiness
Showed me the way…
And now I know
The difference between GOOD sex and BAD sex…
I enjoyed your every touch
How you made my body feel alive!
But, now I have been
CAST AWAY from my GARDEN of pleasure
Cast away from YOUR LOVE and touch
Now I must TOIL
In my own SWEAT and in the sun
Looking for the SERPENT
With the magic touch you held
Oh, to be BLIND once more!
Now, every man
Doesn’t measure up
To your EVIL
Ecstasy of pleasure and SIZE
Now I am in the world
My teeth
Trying to find
The GRAINS of GOOD sex
Among the WEEDS
Of lousy lovers!
