As The Days Go By

Poem By Jeremy Willson

As the days go by I wither away
Everyone is dying every minute, of every second, of every day
As the days go by I watch the clouds go by
As day turns to night I watch the stars shoot out across the sky
As I lay in bed and think
As I lay in bed and write
As the days go by
And I listen to the whispers of happiness and love pass me by
I grow more and more lonely
The smile I wear sometimes phony
As the days go by I see those who are here and those who are gone
The fake people of which I've drawn
Or are they fake?
As the days go by I lay awake
As the days go by unable to sleep
I lay my head on a pillow that's as soft as a sheep
And as the days go by I feel my mind slipping away into a great abyss
Quiet, free, and full of bliss
As the days go by

Birds Of A Feather....

I miss you, the next time I see you can I hold your hand?
It makes it easier, b/c against the world is where we stand
But against the wall is where I want you to be
The friction, adrenaline, my breathe all you'll be able to see

I've Done Enough

I have plenty of questions
That slowly eat away at me
Like a plague in the water
And all you are is the rain

Over Thinking So I'm Gonna Sit Down

I'm not important am I? My life seems miniscule
Everytime I try and do something I'm met with ridicule
To be honest I don't seem to matter
My life's a shity joke that isn't even met with laughter

Sweather Love

Whenever I'd get nervous
So nervous I'd be freezing cold
I slipped inside my sweater
Where it's nice and warm

Moments Away

If I blink will you disappear?
If I leave would you even care my dear?
I suppose we're both ghosts
We don't belong here, like rebellious quotes

Am I An Abstract Painting In A Gallery Full Of Still Life's, Or Is That Just My Ego?

I am different, I'm not like the others, I'm unique
My writing style is an unknown technique
My soul is a colorful mess
My lips whisper tales of old, though my eyes are colorless
