Being, Present Progressive

I do not wished to be courted.

I wish to be courting.

To have been courted
means to be a place where one has been
and a thing which one has done.

I am constant.
And I refuse to be captioned
by a person’s temporary experience.

People will come and go
and sometimes,
worse for the wear.

But as they do,
I will grow,
and fare.


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!
