Be Like Me.

Poem By Jeremy Willson

If I told you who I really was would you still think I'm pretty?
Cause honestly my intentions are pretty shitty
My words are my insurance to hold your thoughts hostage
Or maybe I'm invisible and I need a throat louzange
You can't see the person I'm arguing I'm not anymore
I pretend I'm different but it's hard to tell, you
That maybe I'm not as kind as I seem
I'm a bad human bein
I'm ready to be loved but I don't see it
I can't feel it, all around me I can hear it
I say what I say and I say I can't deal
Out the garbadge and the baggage that is my heart
Beat inside this chest like songs with deep bass
Deep connections are what I like
I don't have deep pockets but I have many cents
Sense to make you remember me if you leave me
You will miss me, I'm happy I can be a scar
I know that's wrong I'm selfish I've told you this
I am not gonna go away
I'm always here in this dark
Help me
Fucking go away
Don't save me
I'm so confusing I' m not easy
I am hard to get to know unless you decide to be me
Don't be me

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
