Her affectionate touch and endless warmth
Gave me some reason to smile
I wasn’t really interested
But the opportunity came knocking
And I had to grab it quickly

It was quiet a strange feeling
But I chose to hide it in me
Because I wanted to surprise her
And she was the jewel in the river

After weekends of carousals
And hugs that buried me in her heart
I had finally built my world around her

Then the bombshell
She was carrying my seed
Germinating inside herself

My mind went berserk
And out of sense I became
Oozing hatred and guilt
For wading through the forbidden fruit
Whose mother was mine too!!!
