PLEASE TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT WHAT INSPIRED THIS WORK: The literal story about picking a peach stems from a recent event when I slipped while climbing a peach tree to pick a particularly ripe peach I wanted. I came off the tree to tend to my bleeding leg and continued through the orchard, it was only when I got home that I realized I never went back to actually pick that peach because I got side tracked from the injury. The sinking feeling of wasted effort reminded me of the dissatisfaction that came with courting someone only to be rejected and reprimanded severely. Didn't matter how much effort you put into it, you're the one who ends up hurt. So I personified the whole poem to reflect this failed courting sentiment.
