Are We All Eve

i think of Eve and Satan
the need for knowledge something more
something greater that Adam would have to notice
and i think
how are her and i different at all?

and i think of
journals that i was too afraid to write
in because ink was damning and permanent
how ive always been afraid
and maybe i was born eighty years old
and afraid so afraid
i wear my wounds with pride
because those were the moments i forgot my fear

i wonder what youre hiding
always
the bruises i cannot see but can only taste
when we kiss but you cant open your eyes
to look at me
and when you talk there is poison
somewhere
in the midst of something pure i see
the apple i cant eat
the apple i will eat
im sorry
im sorry
