#OctPoWriMo-Day 3: Insecurity

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.

    Well written, Jesi. I never know what to say when I read something that is based on such a difficult thing. But suffice it to say that I love the message, I love the words, and I love your work.

      Thank you. This is one of those subjects that has actually been prevalent in my life since childhood, so I suppose I know quite a lot about this type of insecurity. Which means it wasn’t that difficult for me to write about. The best thing you can say to someone in such a difficult situation, or any really, is that you are there if they need to talk. Be a sounding board without offering advice. That’s all they truly need.

    It reminds me of a rousing fantasy battle between two lovers. There is some wonderful word play here. You definitely stepped up your game, Psyche.

      Thank you, Dear One. I’ve been getting up insanely early every day to write with Willow and I think it’s showing. In a good way, I hope. This one is autobiographical but then, when is insecurity not?

    Yes, insecurity is a bitch, especially when you’re on the receiving end of it…
