By The Fire

Poem By Jeremy Willson

I want to yell at winter to freeze itself in place
Never go away as to not remove the last trace
Of the only thing that ever meant anything to me
A taste of the coldest touch you can not see

Comments about By The Fire

An interesting mix of the senses in the last line. I had to read this one a few times to get the meaning. The speaker wishes to freeze in place a taste of a touch (so cold) . I suppose one can wish to never lose something that has left them....yet the only way to maintain it, is to put it on ice, so to speak...yet it is not the same. Nice writing.

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
