Bottled Expectations

Poem By Jeremy Willson

Stepping out of the car
I stare up at the stars flickering like your eyes
I search for the moon but can't seem to find it
My fingers stained with smoke
I spit out my gum and stick my hands in my pockets
Struggling to find the keys to the house
I stop to just enjoy tonight's surroundings
So it wasn't what I expected
That's not bad when you take a moment to breathe
And listen to the silence of the sky,
The steady beat of your heart
Almost as if satisfied
It's surreal in a way
But it'll suffice

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
