List and Less

If I could quell the lump in my throat
Could smooth away my heart’s erratic beating,

If I could move
If I could eat or drink
If I could meet up with people
If I could clear my head
If I could think
If I could breathe steady
If I could stop crying
If I could write it all away
If I could go to sleep
If I could wake-up feeling better
If I could be at peace

Then I would.

And when I finally can.
I’ll never look back again.


About Jessica Lee

Jessica is a twenty-something poet who performs most of her work on stage in Spoken Word. She has found writing therapeutic since she was child, and has pursued it ceaselessly. She enjoys writing even the most fleeting thoughts and dreams as SensicalRavings. Between long retail shifts, she enjoys writing observational pieces (always with a slant) of locally relevant subjects as ALLGainesville. If you appreciate inspiring, coming-of-age suppositions, become a follower. Though it's not always roses, it's raw!
