Bitter Fruit

The fruit was luscious,

soft , yet firm

luring me with its provocative aroma

to savor one bite~

but the fruit proved bitter,

its aftertaste remains on my tongue

a jolting reminder of the past,

its pit now lodged in my gut,

planted to fester and grow.

One thought on “Bitter Fruit

  1. From the interior of the peach pit a medicine is made.
    Though you would not want to eat that pit and be poisoned.
    Some seeds need to pass through a few different phases before they are ready to be planted and bloom.
