Our elbows collided,

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!

You professed your love

You professed your love....

Sweet, like a rose in a

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

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

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.

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!

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

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

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.

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!

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 Russell Sivey| Details |

Education is Worth Fighting For

<center><b>An education
To all those in school right now
High school and college
Is what I believe is worth
Fighting for, wholeheartedly</b></center>

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)

Im about to explode

Cant take it anymore

I look around and Im surrounded by a mass of people I cant 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 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

Short High School poem by Judy Riley| Details |

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 SillyBilly theKidster| Details |

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 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,

Short High School poem by Taylor Graham| Details |


Heres 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 dreams


Short High School poem by randy johnson| Details |

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.

Bladder Problems in Class

Numbers on 
White boardnames written hori-

Students ask
To go peeright when class starts  
THATS just wrong

Bathroom line
Of students who have bladder
Problems  WOW!

People are
Not using lunchtime to do 
Their business 

No one knows
When to do their duties  SER-

Short High School poem by Jon A Cavanaugh| Details |

The first dance

A wistful wallflower
And a painfully shy boy
At a high school dance
Both out of fear stood in the rear
And would share an occasional glance
Both hearts ached , as if they'd been staked,
And it seemed love had no chance
'Til the nights chaperone saw them alone
And insisted they both dance

Short High School poem by Josey Portas| Details |

Leave me out

Move on. 

Take a step.

Make someone proud.

Follow your dream.

Learn to dance.

Meet someone great.

Stop using drugs.

Don'y cheat.

Join a band.

Graduate high school.

Write a book.


Be happy.


Forget about

What you did.

Whatever you do, 

Do it, 

But leave me out of it.

Short High School poem by Ali Matheny| Details |

The Loser

I walk the halls, 

Of my old high school


When then I remember

That awful December.

His name was Josh.

He was lost inside

His own mosh.

Josh was always 

So rude.

Always in a bad 


One day he

Said "I just

Wish that you were


And I told him

That I already

Empty(Poem#2-High School Years)

Everything no longer matters 

Everything has lost taste 

I breath, emptiness enters, air does not 

Exhale, still empty 

Loneliness fills my days, as soup fills a bowl 

All over, right to the brim 

Smoldering hot and steamy 

Just want to empty the bowl, but fear grips me

For then I will be truly empty
