and had I been alone I would have never entered the store at all


I saw the lemon

sitting there

mocking the hands in my pockets who itched with desire

So I pretended to be the type of person who cared about expensive pans

then snatched the small, pointless object and shoved it into my coat


I rubbed my fingers along its curves

It felt nothing like the real thing, covered with artificial bumps

The edges were soft enough to be pushed in

leaving man-made craters where my nails had been

and it did not let my hands smell sweet

Yet walking through the mall this tangible secret invigorated me


It was mine

It was worthless

but it was wrong

And now it sits in a box in my room

As a reminder of the rebel that lives within me

With one grape, one strawberry, and two olives

L.J Galez: Beautiful trauma, this is when all the what if's will remain what if's and eventually after reading some lines you'll realize the answers that was left unsaid to your questions are just there, finding a soul is easy, but finding a perfect match to bond with your soul is a lot harder when you c...

ᴄᴏꜰꜰᴇᴇ ʙᴇᴀɴᴢ: The poems are short, they describe everyday actions that most people, in one way or another must have experienced in life. A text left on seen, a love unrequited, losing hope, pushing through. Beautiful messages we all can relate to. Amazing! Keep writing because you're doing great!
