You Don’t Say

Who does it care
What do I hurt?

Neither here nor there
Your word

Shallow sighs
Heavy breathing

Blink away a smile
Muster up the tears

Keep it bottled up real tight.
Do not show the fear.

Type your temper into tines
That prickle as they prod

One tick
One tock
The keyboard sounds.

Echoing your unsaid thoughts.


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!
