On The Brink of Her Folly

Part two of the Adam and Eve poem series

Adam: "You didn't."

Eve: "I've done it
and now I can see.
You really must join me
that's how it must be."

Adam: "I can't. I wont.
This thing is not right.
You've doomed us to separate,
to be lone every night!"

Eve: "I was tricked."

Adam: "You were tricked?"

Eve: "Yes by him the snake there."

Adam: "I see not a snake
and know snakes to be fair."

Eve: "It's true! You must believe it.
You wont eat if you don't.
And when God sees this sin
I alone will be smote."

Adam: "Perhaps that is just."

Eve: "Can you think such a thing?
I wanted to be like God
Thought happiness
it would bring."

Adam: "He still said we shouldn't."

Eve: "I know and I've done.
Please love come with me
perhaps we can run."

Adam: "To where?
I know not of a place that's not here.
If you know of such a one then make that
now more clear."

Eve: "I don't."

Adam: "There you see!
You'd have me doomed as well
and did a place such exist it
may surely be hell."

Eve: "No I think he'll forgive
he's known you more than I
and would let us both live."

Adam: "Perhaps. But what if not?"

Eve: "Would you want to live alone?
Even after all of this us was shown?"

The place took a silence as Adam
then sought
for an answer that was different
than the one he was fraught.
