Jaz Persing is a writer, singer, and human living in Los Angeles. She works in television when she can. The rest of the time she’s just looking for a dare-to-be-great situation, hoping she can put a good dent in the world with the mess of broken love, vulnerability, and words she has. In the meantime, she’s immensely grateful for God and the many good people around her that make it all seem feasible.

Dances on the Edge

It would be so easy
Just one
“I’ve missed you”
And to my orbit you’d return
Bringing your pleasure and poison
Who would have believed
That certainty would be so saccharine to me
Even certainty of detonation
Than to stand there exposed, waiting
Everything could be beautiful
Because everything’s at stake

Before You Wake

From Silence, My Soul
