This is powerful and true and scary and real and amazing and lovely and disheartening and relevant and lyrical and it fits into a space I can relate to on many different levels. Brava, Lily Myers.


Lily Myers performed this piece for Wesleyan University at the 2013 College Unions Poetry Slam invitational. It was awarded Best Love Poem at the tournament. It went viral this past fall, thanks to a post on Upworthy entitled "Watch a Student Totally Nail Something About Women That I've Been trying to Articulate for 37 Years." My friend Emily turned me onto it today on Facebook.
