The most forbidden fruits hold the sweetest taste
My name is Molly Nash, and I attend a school on the Wirral. Personally I believe poetry provides me with an outlet to vent about emotions, ideas, or even to emphasise problems in today’s society. I wrote this poem (named Seasons of Love) to illustrate how love is able to travel across the seasons, and no matter the challenges, that love is able to never falter. I adore poetry as it’s a creative and fun way to express myself.
Seasons of Love
Lavender kisses upon a maple leaf,
Delicate love within young seeds are sown.
The autumn days are long and burdensome,
when your eyes can bless all
but mine own.
Snowflakes drift from heaven’s breath,
Caressing mountaintops far and wide-
Along with them, my heart yearns for warmth,
of which I am left bare without you by my side.
Cruel spring light ensnares the evanescence of sunset,
Encasing the velvet night in each of your eyes,
The constellations of far off stars map our journey,
as the deafening silence of
love claims its lost prize.
The most forbidden fruits hold the sweetest taste,
and yours commits to the most pleasant of wars,
I shall feel the wrath of Lucifer upon my breast,
If I, for a single summer, am free to be yours.
Molly Nash, Wirral
