Biography of Jessy Liz
Biographies aren't important. The only thing that matters is if what you write breaks through to someone.
There is a lyric which says 'Music is worthless unless it can make a complete stranger break down and cry.'
The same can be said for writing.
Jessy Liz Poems
The Art Of Death
Death by murder- death by chance Death by secret night romance Death by number- paint the lines Death in color, or black and lie
Lie To Me
Legs are shaking Barrier’s breaking Please forgive me I’ve been sinning
Sun is bright. Birds are singing. The air is thick and heavy. Knock, knock- no one’s home. Key turns and we’re alone.
Bruised lips; Mascara smeared- Panties lying Over there.
Blue Ribbon Smile
Red roses on piano keys She's on her knees. Black sky against green leaves She's bleeding.
A Love So Kind
A stir of emotions, thoughts racing through- Can't help but keep my mind on you. Giving a little, in hopes of a lot, I'm praying I am good enough
Backdoor Romance In Black And White
They wear their business suits in public With their business faces, too. But at night they tear their stage sets down And pay their backdoor dues.
I Hate Myself For Loving You
I'm hanging on to hopes and dreams, Afraid of losing everything.. Hating myself for breaking the rules; Disgusted that I fell for you.
This Bitter Champagne
Sweetest lie I’ve ever heard- A blank shadow of the deepest word. Turned from champagne to vinegar on your tongue- Spilling from a mouth that’s far too young.
Where Are You Tonight
Where are you tonight? The world is so quiet But my heart is pounding so loud without you. And what’s the sky look like?
This mess is getting out of hand. Or is it just falling into place? Losing sense of what’s only pretend I’m falling fast from grace.
Fits Like A Tragedy
Closure is a noose, I’m finding now. I am breaking loose and crying out. It fits like a tragedy. In the mirror I can see..
Take my hand, you can trust me. I can feel it- that lust for ecstasy. Close the door, it’s so damn late. And there’s no time to vindicate.
Forever And Never
Yes, I miss you. I’m waiting for you. But I won’t lie awake in this dream forever. And I am with you.
Morning is rising, a cloud of fog, settling in.
I can’t see far- my own surroundings don’t make sense.
Thick and twisted is this mess of a woods-
I could try all day but it’d do no good.
This knowledge means nothing if it’s you that lies beyond.
I can’t rest knowing of our indifferent bond.
I keep moving forward, pushing through-
But not a silhouette is to be seen… Where are you?
I’m getting frightened, and running now.
