We are all familiar with the saying” The forbidden fruit is the sweetest” but did we ever stop to think of what the panoramic meaning of this saying can explicit? What is this irresistible taste that summons the sinner in us to come to the surface of the saint we so want to be? Is it sweet because it is forbidden or is it bitter even if it is sweet when it is permitted? Why is the prohibited so attractive and mouth watering? Why we are always tempted to have what is not ours? Do we want it because we want it? Or do we want it because we can’t have it? Are we innocent from yearning to that taste than can cast us away from our paradise or are just guilty as charged?
The human psyche works in a reversed way, it needs to be provoked, to be summoned to the impossible in order to be stimulated enough to savor the sweet sugary taste of what is banned and illegal. Once it attains the unattainable it loses interest and the ever luring plea suddenly is silenced and once fed the appetite dies and search for a new birth in a new continent of delicious desires and fantasies.
We like to be challenged, to feel we exist more when we defy and conquer; it is like a confirmation of the self and its wicked ways that need to be nourished constantly!
We have the urge to play the temptation and seduction game, we fancy danger, we crave the hazard winds to blow us away from our conscious image of the coherent self that is censured with the laws and morals of the good and bad!
But why does sin and malice appear so enticing to us? Why do we enjoy standing on the balconies of our dark side? Why do we feel the need to experience the dim so we can walk better into the light? Why does wickedness give us more confidence and charisma? Could it be the marriage of indulgence to decadence? Is there a divorce between fascination and virtue? Don’t we all feel sort of dead when we always play by the rules? Isn’t why we always seek adventure and rejuvenation of our blood and skin?
Why the things we have are never enough for us? Where does that deep need to own what refuses to be ours come from? It will remain a secret for no one can decode the reasons, we can only speculate and run in circles while we still fixed to our grounds.
Disobedience will always be heart-catching, we will always be seduced to crack the solid firm ground, in order to enjoy an earthquake of unborn feelings, of that virgin taste we never relished before.
But beware of feasting on your insatiable appetite for your forbidden fruit for no matter how juicy and sugary it may taste , it can bring death upon you are you willing to stand on the front lines of a mortal pleasure?
