Stay

Written by: Joseph Camp

A little too much pain.

While I walk out the door.

You called my poetry insane.

But now I'm saying something more.

You painting a picture of a dove.

Me staying out late.

Life is like a silhouette.

Still so much to be shown.

I wish you stayed, I wish you stayed in my life.

How do I live without the ones I love?

How do I reason with the ones I hate?

How do I forget.

I'm so tired of being alone.

The questions live in me.

The answers rest with you.

This situation needs more clarity.

Time to make it anew.

You lamenting over the dark skies above.

This is your fate.

Like Romeo and Juliet.

Still so much in your moan.

I wish you stayed, I wish you stayed in my life.

How do I live without the ones I love?

How do I reason with the ones I hate?

How do I forget?

I'm so tired of being alone.

The years pass by one by one.

Every night I cry.

After tears comes the sun.

I can't sleep but I still try.

Staring into the twilight.

I pass on into the afterlife.

I feel weak but I still fight

I wish you stayed, I wished you stayed in my life.
