Marrakesh Market by Karine Andriasyan

Went to the market today

and suddenly everything made me miss you

we laughed in that alley

I gave you those chocolates

I bought bananas for your snack one day

we wondered what we would make for dinner

argued about protein yogurts

what made sense or not

always ending up buying different brands

we ate at that coffee shop inside

in several hours long talks and happy meetings

which seemed like 10 minutes

you asked me in I needed flour there

or if I was out of tomato pulp

Bought me some medication when I was ill

We rode that kid’s unicorn toy outside with 2 coins

We squeezed fresh orange juice and drank it

right there in front of the cereals

Under the staring eyes of the employee

We said goodbye outside so many times

Always trying to prolong the inevitable

Making that flirty steamy small talk

desperate to hook some minutes more.

We almost made out on that parking lot

Gave long hugs inside the car

And long strolls with the market trolleys.

You know eyes like ours should never meet

Because they leave a mark everywhere we go

Making my heart remember and skip a beat

Every time I come here and miss your glow.
