αγάπη

In greek mythology, Odysseus spent 

20 years fighting to come back to

 his wife in Ithaka, and penelope waited 

20 years for her husband to come back,

Waiving off 108 men who thought

 he would never return in the process.

Legend says they fell in love at first sight,

having only their intuition to fall back on, 

but she kissed him so hard, her teeth marks

 were imprinted into his skin kike battle scars. 

When Eve created skin, 

She left her teeth marks in the forbidden fruit.

In another dimension,  Adam shakes her

up and down until her skin looks like a plum,

then he cries when apples remind her of pain.

She eats one away out of love and pity. 

When Penelope and Odysseus reunited,

they were glad they had stuck to their gut.

But when Eve realized what she had done,

she threw the apple rind at the tree stump and 

stared at the marks until her stomach 

stitched itself back together with self-doubt
