A Student’s Wait

(read without stopping for breath)

gazing into space
waiting for time
to pass by
the feeling of
anxiety from this
long frustrating wait
the inside of
me is slowly
bursting out of
visions of the
future creep into
my head and
the dream strove
for is drifting
away from any
the sky grows
dim with my
thundering heart just
endlessly thinking of
consequences and choices
that must be
and over the
fear there lies
the courage to
out of uneasiness
comes millions of
thoughts streaming in
wishing that soon
it would finally
arrive and come
the news of
rejection or acceptance
will determine my
for the grade
that would not
come tears me

~Summer 2000, college

in dedication to all students, as the school year draws closer to the end


Your Pretty Blue Eyes

Your pretty blue eyes
sparkle in the sun
And your waist length locks
flow around you when you run

Your voice so clear, I hear
up and down the hall
Bosoms just perfect
above a waist so small

Your complexion always
looks beautifully Photoshopped
And ten guys line up each time
your books, you’ve dropped

We all admire you from afar
and wish we could be you
After we talk about your fakeness
and secretly hate you

This poem is fictional – about how an unpopular group of girls might view the popular girl in school.  I’ve always thought it ironic how popular girls are envied and hated at the same time. Linking up at dVersePoets this evening.
