    To the weekend by Jascie Epinn

    And no one can stop me.
    You know you couldn’t stop me last night.
    We invited everyone to the house
    and e…

    Forever by Jascie Epinn

    When you’re ready
    Every time you’re ready
    I’ll be there
    I’m subordinate
    I’m inferior to you
    I will stand behind you in every situation
    In every darkness
    In every dawn
    In every calm
    In every storm
    I will suppo…

    Waves of November, Drops of Jupiter by Jascie Epinn

    Saw faces in my couch cushions
    And passed through waves of November
    Drank Drops of Jupiter
    And danced with cigarette ashes on the tip of my nose

    Our Local Bar by Jascie Epinn

    You tackled him to the ground,
    Swung and swung
    And swung and shouted my name…
    My name.
    “I looked at him and all I could think about -
    All I could see was him kissing you.
    I just went off.”

    Elliot by Jascie Epinn

    Oh my God, I had the most amazing time last night
    With this guy who has my tongue in knots
    Every time we meet.
    He’s boyish
    He’s got the deepest brown hair coming down in tresses
    Green eyes and a genuine, …

    California by Jascie Epinn

    I’ve seen every edge of America
    And I have yet to see any single place
    Anything like California
    Anything like my friends and I,
    Traveling like gypsies through the rotting streets
    Under the rotting, hot su…

    In All Your Ways by Jascie Epinn

    Education is freedom.
    We are freedom’s children.
    The Lord is freedom.
    I dwell in oceans, serene crevices.
    I bask in their innocence.
    Innocent layers.

    Youth by Jascie Epinn

    I am 21.
    My heart is a fire.
    A youthful blaze.
    Tears overcome my will power.
    And I don’t regret this weakness.
    I hurt.
    I hurt.
    I’m glad I still hurt.
    Sometimes I’m so torn.

    Life's Lush Lips by Jascie Epinn

    Is my way my way because it’s what I say?
    Am I righteous because I spit lines like this
    Strum a guitar and seem so perfect
    When I pray to God to give me a purpose
    Because I’m embarrassed to be bewildered…
