lemon eyes 2

Who is that lemon-eyed monster Staring at me?

Such an acidic look

Makes my face melt

You appear to be an orange

Yet you taste like a lemon

The only tree in the forest

Behind my fence

That offers what seems edible

At first glance

Yet makes the tongue contract and swell

A betrayal that only the camera can capture

As you snicker at the unsuspecting

Even the birds and bees are smart enough

To avoid you

My love for lemons

Cannot be consummated

Because of your cruelty

I spit you out

Watch you molder in your antagonism

Yet you manage to get in the last laugh
