From the Rib of Adam- Sabrina Escorcio

From the rib of Adam
her splintered self remains,
fruit of scarlet rebellion
devoured and consumed,
seeds of truth swallowed
bring knowledge to bloom

An ache carried within
the hollow of her belly,
a source of life in shroud
born into sheer will,
a desire for freedom
that will not be stilled

She walks a fertile path
in a covenant with self,
as his flesh does sting
with wounds he cannot hide,
from the wayward thorn
pulled from his side.
