Some days I wonder whether Eve in Eden was a case of mistaken identity.
Whether Lizzy or Rachael or Ella were meant to be.
With no childhood memories,
Was their first date a snoozefest laced with pleasantries?
Neither could eat from a template of how they’re meant to be.
With no career or previous history, was their first kiss like conservative virgin sex, full of an awkward intensity?
What was the attraction? Looks or personality or just that she had been made from him for him?
Was she as immaculate as a queen?
Did he need to teach her how to manage the home, cook or clean?
It’ll never reveal whether Eve even had sex appeal
Was love meant to breathe with Eve?
Yes, we see that she was given as his one and only.
Was Adam so lonely or just insanely desperate?
Was he rough and ready to her delicate?
Was she tough and he extremely sensitive?
Had he wanted a slice of heaven for the hell of it?
After the novelty had worn off, did he start regretting it?
Want to curse God for blessing it.
Was he sleeping on her subtleties like a sedative?
Or was the union so heavenly that he wanted to make the best of it.
Knowing she was made for him, did he ever wrestle with this so-called blessing?
After they’d been put together, did angels tell him he’d never looked better?
Did he get that constant reassurance they looked good together?
With no ceremony was this the first true marriage or a cohabitation?
Their mere creation a blessing witnessed by his creator and angels
If Adam had a choice would he have remained faithful?
If we were Adam, would we even be grateful?
Accepting that, though love learns the hard way,
Some lives… you’re made for.
