One delicious bite,
so began the fall from grace.
From perfection to perdition,
From friendship to shame,
From trust to distrust,
A cover lifted,
so that it became clear,
the change one singular bite wrought.
One hope to restore that which was lost

one bite from trust to distrust - so true - and yes - mercy alone can restore….like your magReplyDelete
Goodness gracious! Was there a lot of strenuous thought put into your poem, or did it spring right out of your marvelous mind!! I feel it had to be spontaneous to speak so vibrantly.ReplyDelete
Yes, it requires mercy -- and amazing grace.ReplyDelete
This is wonderful stevie!ReplyDelete
Love your two first lines; indeed, so began the fall from grace.;;))ReplyDelete
Have a lovely Monday,
You expressed a lot of truth in just a few words. I think the reason that the first two lines resonate so much with people is that sin IS pleasurable at first. Yet it destroys--leaving, as you so well said, no hope but grace.ReplyDelete
Mercy as the only hope. So true. One mistake and then the slippery path to destruction. Nice Magpie.ReplyDelete
