bruised apple

bruised apple
punctured hole
carried from Tallahassee by a lassie
to remind her of home

of organic gardens
coffee shops tucked away
a perfect bruise makes her want to stay
to remind her that nothing is perfect
except the place
she grew up in

yet she feels the need to face
a different world
unlike her own
although a bruised apple
believes every place is home


  1. You have to go away to appreciate what home is.

  2. Yes. I often find myself listening to what others think I should do with my life, when all I want is to go back to Tallahassee. :)

  3. I like that first stanza a lot! I think it says it all in a simple and beautiful way. You are so very clever with your words.
