Grant Me

What would you like to read?
If not the deepest, darkest parts of me.

My fears, and my anxieties.
My desires, and my flighty dreams.
Hopes for lust and intimacy.

I wish to be touched
and held firmly.
Too hard.

I want to squirm.

I need rough and stern.
I am spoiled and stubborn,
always learning lessons the hard way.

Until the tremors turn to tears.
Until my body shrinks and shys away.

Give me more than others take.
And take what you want from here.


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!
