Leaf in the Wind

You once told me
we should accept
our partner receives gifts
from others

Little ones, you said, like a flower
or a leaf

You said, not a whole garden

But you offered me Eden
and I’ve eaten the forbidden fruit

Though my conscience
tells me I’ve sinned
I keep coming back
like a leaf in the wind
