Shortest Love Story

Our elbows collided, 
'cause my desk is wrong-sided.
Made for a lefty, 
When I write
with my right.

What Happened?

In high school did I die?
Oh but to give life a try!
Is it all part of God's dream?
Or should I just croak or scream!

Pole Catching

Sitting there so beautifully-
the one who had stolen my heart from me.
I walked right by to catch his eye,
but caught a pole instead.

Replacement Teacher

There was a young teacher from Crete
Whose foot size was very petite.
But her students did plot
And to school they brought,
Some shoes for oversize feet.

You professed your love

You professed your love....

Sweet, like a rose in a 
blossoming spring,
Warm, like your chestnut eyes 
as you smile,
Entangled with promises,

...but not to me.

Trying(Poem#10-High School Years)

It burns like the sun 
Heating all who see its wrath 
Without it, darkness 

Insanity, me
Scratch at dark walls of small box 
Lord, help me now please

High School Football-Favorite Sport

Under the lights on Friday night.
High school football starting to ignite.
Merciless to everyone.
This is war, not for fun.
Winning state is a beautiful sight.

Naked Dreams

Fifty years old and back in high school
Standing here naked like a total fool
No one seems to care
That I am totally bare
Not noticing me is much more uncool

The Heart's desire

A thick flame
Flickering and bold
A Sunday drive
With penetrating charm
A gloomy light bulb
Lone and forgotten
Our passion is aggressive
& with it we are whole

Pain's Phases

I am my own hero
Life is not a zero!

Still thinking it as weird?
I'm over what I feared!

Think I passed the worst 
Was high school cursed?

Get past the pain
Grow a new brain!

college. I make good
grades and have a
job that God's

It's my first,
I need it.
I hold it like in the movies.
Breath it in.
It hurts,
I cough,
I take another breath in.
I do it right.
I feel sinful,
But it feels too good to be,
It burns inside.

February Funny Bone

I once met a guy by the name of Mort
By his record he must be very smart
At five, High School complete
College at six; a feat
A leaper; birthdays are four years apart

I want to see you

I would transfer just to see you
You would be the highlight of the day!
Your smile makes my Sundays all better 
You're my high school rival
But I love you and I will always love you
I want to see you today!

He's my junior high school sweetheart
He's my soul mate who bestows his forgiveness on me
His dedication and devotion is so beautiful, so true and everlasting

i have this friend back in high school
she was known to be one of the most beautiful
people didn't notice it's just her make-up
and when a sudden rain came and wash her face up
poor creature, she was laughed by all

Brand New Year

The year has passed,
so long ago,
And now its time for us to go
We've said or prayers,
and goodbyes
So spread your wings,
its time to fly
We wont forget our childhood here
But now its time for
A Brand New Year.

Short High School poem by Anusha Dharmasena| Details | |

Be all that you can be

Sun and sand and beach
Life has some lessons for me
Be all  you can be!

Sad conversations
May healing come to you soon
And children be safe!

For all you have done
And wherever you may be
May you rest in peace!

Writing on

learning more here
and loving it
I always wrote
not in high school

I write now
Some may rhyme
Some may not

Bellowed Words

Do your best,
Is what people
taught me when I was
growing up.  Continue
your education after
high school.  Don't stop and never give
up.  I hear those words bellowing in
my ears.  That's why I have not given up.

High School Existance

The dream is still within
How painful high school has been!

Should I drop out? Scream and shout?
What in the world is life about!

My existance may seem
To be but a dream

But still have love's light
I won't give up this fight!

Short High School poem by Joshua Lacey| Details | |

Go-Figure, It's God

Memory sometimes blank
Point of work? Almst crazy!
Wish to talk; somehow aggrivated
What love, peace?
Damnation constant rain

God working 
Fight confusion, sin
Accept high school D's, F's
Open gift within
Love splashing onto life

Short High School poem by Michelle McDermin| Details | |

Please come around

I try, and I try, and I try
but it seems like
I'm still where I always was
in High School

All my comments
and reaching out
are invisible
and get no response

I still try
because I feel I should
I know now
one day they may just turn around

Short High School poem by Joshua Lacey| Details | |

On Fire!

My life; my mission; God's decree
How could only games possibly be!

I made at least high school
Yet somehow let Satan rule

Going to write a poetry book
Somehow I can really cook!

My worst enemy? Could have been
Will let myself at  life win!

Short High School poem by Daron Long| Details | |

Purity (High School is Lacking It)

I’m about to explode
Can’t take it anymore
I look around and I’m surrounded by a mass of people I can’t stand
All the stories about all the whores
All the guys just looking to score
I am encompassed by immaturity
Is there any innocence? Any purity?

Short High School poem by Colton Charlson| Details | |


Tying knots
Mental state
Who is hot?
Let us rate

Mental games
Teenage life
Goals to aim
Who holds the knife

Broken thoughts
Broken hearts
Connect the dots
Life just starts

You existed
But now you're gone
Life's so twisted
Should've held on

Short High School poem by Junice Lanza| Details | |

Senior year

It's my last year of high school
I'm finally a senior
I will cherish my senior year
I know I will miss being a senior
I will miss my friends that I had made
I will always keep the memories of my friends

It's my last and final year
This is my senior year

American Beauty

American Beauty can do everything,

from graduating High School,


Judge kindly, 



never overlooking passion.

Qualified referee,

singing tolerance.

Universal value,

warmhearted Xanthippe,

yapping zealously!

Short High School poem by Cathy Ncube| Details | |

Rewards of College Education

in grade school
he heard about it

in high school
he prepared for it

in his first year
he explored it

in his second year
he focused on it

in his third year
he felt part of it

in his fourth year
he graduated from it

Now, he has a job
because of it.

Short High School poem by Emma H| Details | |

The First Day of High School

Concrete jail like walls,
Butterflies flying around in my stomach, 
Wandering around in a big school,
Mouthwatering PB and J for lunch,
Never ending day,
Eyes drooping from exhaustion,

Regrets From My Youth

Everyday they would encircle and torment me.
I was the victim of every elementary and high school bully.
Eventually however they would come to accept me,
then altogether we would torment the victim that came after me.
Regrets From My Youth. I owe so many an apology.

Short High School poem by Taylor Graham| Details | |


Here’s her picture: 
black as Bucephalus with a graceful 
crest, ears pricked to a skyline
outside the frame.
My first love in high school,
sold for college. 

I keep the photo close.
Forever lost like lovers
gone, a horse runs 
just beyond the dream’s

August 29, 1986

(This poem is true)

Twenty years ago today was the last day I went to school.
I was fed up with taking the students and teachers bull.
I dropped out in the 9th grade but years later I graduated high school at the age 
of twenty-three.
I hope other kids don't drop out like me.

Short High School poem by Ali Matheny| Details | |

Little Jimmy

He's made fun of for the last time.
Tied a rope up.
Walking through the halls of high school.
The rope is swinging from the stairwell.
He jumped on the railing, Head inside the rope loop.
He jumps and gets choked.
That was in 1930.
He was never nerdy.
He just wanted to be FREE.

Short High School poem by erica buckner| Details | |


I think I messed things up between us,
and I really don't want it to end. 
you made really happy,
you accepted me for who I am,
 I wanted us to last but high school is so crazy.
Hear one thing and I tend to overreact.  
Now i know I'll have to try my best to take those words back.
