Just A Kiss

Poem By Jessica Post

He looks at me
Asks me for
'Just a kiss? '

I say 'No,
I can't.
I can't do this
right now.'

Once again
I had to hold out
On a new experience
A new person
A new life

I felt bad
Wanted to feel good
Wanted to feel him close
But felt panic
Come over my whole body
Panic that brought

Acid in my stomach
That shot up my esphagus
Burning and eating away
Felt like crying
Felt like crawling in a whole
Felt like I was single again

Felt like I was in high school
Butterflies can be painful
If they are even butterflies

I will feel this again
I know it
When I see him

Rainy Day At Your Place

Pull me toward you
Look me in the eyes
Lean in
Go for the kill

Confusion Of A Twenty-Two Year Old Woman

He's dark


Whisper against my skin
With your finger tip
Traveling over my shoulder

I Stand Before You

Look at me
I stand here before you
Baring my skin
Baring my soul


Wet, juicy lips
A head on collision with mine
They take over my every move
Sweeping against my lips
