So I recently finished high school and although a lot of my old poetry is gone, I found a couple of poems that aren’t the best poems I have ever written but I wanted to share with you all anyway!
Just a disclaimer/ warning, these two poems are quite ‘deep’ and focus on negative feelings I have felt in the past so, just letting you know…
This is the first poem I wrote. I think the overall concept is quite self-explanatory, but it’s basically about when everything just gets on top of you and you’re just like ARGHHH!!
She felt overwhelmed by everything
Emotions, people too
Like she was drowning in an ocean
Of a dark and murky blue.
She could not see the bottom
No way for her to be free
Frantically she looked around
But found nobody.
The ocean is her classrom
And the waves are now her peers
She can’t hold her breath for much longer
As she keeps back all her tears.
The next poem is probably the one poem that affected me the most after I had written it.
It pretty much sums up how the last half of high school was for me. I’m not sure really what caused these feelings but I got through it…
I sit silently in the classroom
Whilst words tumble through the air
And I know where benificial
But I don’t really seem to care.
I try blocking out the universe
All the information and facts
I close my eyes and breathe
But I can’t seem to relax.
Because deep down there’s something wrong
A nagging, empty feeling
That comes from all the secrets
And the thoughts I’ve been concealing.
I cannot even concentrate
On basic daily tasks
Like making conversstion
Or listening in class.
And right know, as I sit here
Feeling totally consumed,
I can’t stop myself from thinking
That there’s nothing I can do
Apart from stumble through my life
Leaving things I think untold
As I hope and pray for someone
Who will give their hand to hold.
Thank you so much for reading!! It’s quite sad how I lost most of my other poems from around that time as it was quite a significant period of my life but yaaarrr.
If you are feeling like anything I talked about in these poems then please talk to someone or contact me. Don’t suffer in silence my loves ❤️
As always, I love you all,
