wishing that it were my real life...
It could have been,
so easily it could have,
but it made me happy anyways.
I was with you in my dream
Something I can only be about once a week.
We didn’t do much,
Nothing that we couldn’t do in real life.
We were hanging out
and then we went to a park.
We just talked for the longest time
sitting under a large oak tree,
Its green leaves shading us from the sun,
rustling in the breeze.
*Ok, I know I graduated here, but I just needed to write something and share it with someone... Sharing poetry is something thats super hard to do at my school. T_T
His long curly hair flows over his shoulders,
Waves breaking from the deep blue oceans of his eyes.
He looks in my direction,
Not at me but to the person next to me,
And he speaks.
Deep and baritone,
Creates a symphony with the music in the background.
Leaning against the wall,
Glasses slowly sliding down his nose.
He’s immersed in his work,
Glancing from laptop to papers and back. Read more »
She was alive so long ago
The princess of the land
Her beauty was known everywhere
And every man wanted her hand in marriage
But none of them would get the opportunity
Because of her beauty
A war broke out in the country
And he castle was invaded
She tried to escape in a hooded robe
As a shadow in the night
But as she turned the corner
She came upon a knight
Who swiftly impaled her with his sword
Just trying to protect his princess
After the war
Her sister was asked to paint a portrait
Declaring the princesses beauty to the world
But she was jealous
And added features of her own
To strip the princess of her beauty
A thousand years later
The only memories of the princess
Are the portrait
And the mysterious spirit
Forever trying to escape
The beauty that traps her.
Whisper beauty into my ear
Sweet honey of life
Heard through the mist
Ask of time
And you will receive
Like a bee in spring
Flying through a rose garden
Eat and drink while it lasts
Gifts of color
And love for all
Like a ship on land
You make no sense
You make me curious
Tell me I’m perfect
And make me happy
Is it wrong the way she feels?
Her heart turns on and off
Like pulling the petals off of a flower
I love him,
I love him not
I love him
Why do I love him again?
And her mind wont accept it
So she finds someone new to crush on
Until she finds a flaw
And can’t imagine ever liking them
I love him not
And her life goes back to normal
At least until the next time
I love him
Why does he seem so amazing?
He’s not my type at all
And the vicious cycle continues
Until the last petal falls off
When he moves far away
I love him not
I love him
I love him not
And as the last minute ticks away
The last petal falls
And he’s gone forever
All she's left with is the stem
and the shadow of what could have been
He’s the perfect friend
You see him everyday in school
He has a good sense of humor
And a good work ethic
You’ve grown up with him
And have known him for years
He would do anything for you
Even take your girlfriend away
She’s been around too long anyways
You’ve loved her for 10 months
And that’s too long
He wants you to be happy
And what could be better than seeing your girlfriend behind your back,
Or texting her every minute of the day
Even when he’s with you?
He’s just doing what a good friend would anyways
Relieving you from a responsibility
Girlfriends are hard work
And he wants you to relax for once
He’s the perfect friend
What more could you ask for?
He is the school’s best athlete
Everything he does is amazing
He’s even got really good grades
And is really handsome to boot
But he is so full of himself they think
He thinks so highly of himself
And thinks nothing of anyone else
His pretty little face will get him anything
All of the girls flock to him
And he dates everyone
But that’s wrong
He has one girlfriend that he has been seeing for a long time
Nothing could separate the two
And he thinks deeply of what to get her for little presents
A ring or a necklace?
Maybe a stuffed animal?
And it has to be only the best quality
Even if he has to go to every shop in town
On top of that
He helps people in school when they are lost
He will explain the steps over and over
As long as it takes until they get it
Even if he doesn’t completely understand it himself
And if someone helps him with anything
He thanks them graciously
But others can’t see that
All they see is his pretty face

Its Valentines Day
She talks to her friend about guys she likes
Her friend’s a guy that said he’d help her be more outgoing
Possibly ask someone out
Or tell them that they are cute.
Every time a cute boy walks over
He motions for her to say something
But she can’t
Its seems that her fear has taken her over
But truly inside
She likes him
And wants to be with him instead
Months ago she talked herself out of dating him
He wasn’t good for her she thought
But she can’t get a guy with him around
While he is motioning
He is doubting himself
His motions look half-hearted
And he seems bored with the process
He has a girlfriend
And has had many in the past
But when she turned him down that while ago
I don’t think he ever recovered
Maybe he still likes her
And it hurts him to help her find another guy
But he still wants her to be happy
He has a girlfriend anyways
The cute guy between them walks away Read more »
The knight brought Rose the magician to the king and told of the apprentices. He also told of their escape and their quest to find the crystals of knowledge.
“How could you have let them go?” the king bellowed. “Find them at once and throw her in the dungeon!”
So once again the knights left, but this time, they were looking for Paris and Ringo, but little did they know that they were miles away on a path to nowhere.
“What do you think the crystals of knowledge look like?” asked Ringo as she undid her long braid. She always had her hair up because its safer in the lab. Paris looked at her perplexed.
“I have no idea” he responded shining his goggles.
“Do you think they will come for us soon?” she asked getting more nervous by the second.
“I doubt it.” he replied” Why would they want us? We are only apprentices and we don’t know all of the secrets yet.” Read more »
Once upon a time, in a chemistry lab far away, there was a magician and two apprentices. The magician’s name was Rose and the apprentices, a boy and a girl, were names Paris and Ringo, respectively. Everyday, the three practiced magic. The two apprentices would learn all there was that Rose could teach them, but one day, the king learned of their work.
“Alchemy!” he yelled, fearing that the three would try to steal his thrown. “They are working for the rebels!!! We must stop them! Bring them to me!”
Less than a minute later, the royal hall filled with nobles and knights. All of the nobles feared the magician and her apprentices, but the knights were filled with courage and they got ready to pursue their target. After all, the king did offer a hefty reward to bring the magician back alive so the knights mounted their steeds and took off. Read more »
In middle school
They knew her as loud an noisy
She couldn’t do a single thing right
When she sang her voice cracked
But above all
She was overweight
And only two people in the entire school
Would even think about talking to her
Flash forward to her senior year of high school
She’s done things that no one could have ever expected
She’s become an author
And she wants to be a scientist
Still not the top of the class
Kind of close
She’s quieter when she’s alone though
Not a word escapes her mouth
Just a nod
Maybe a smile
She remembers how they treated her
Far back in that time called middle school
She has a ton of new friends
And each one of them has more morals that her middle school combined
She waves to them in the hallway
And loves each one dearly
Now she’s in a class with people from middle school
And they want her help with work
And even though that’s the only reason that they are talking to her Read more »
1. Get accepted to a college.
2. Go to prom
3. Become a confident driver
4. Get at least a 3rd in a forensics competition.
5. Be more outgoing.
6. Be more open to being way more spontaneous.
7. Come up with a theory on what happened before the big bang.
8. Or one on black holes…
9. Become famous
10. Be in the next talent show for fun
11. Learn a new language
Total strangers face to face
A few kind words
A helping hand
A little guidance
To escape the herds
Still a failure
In a sea of minds
Next time making it up
Instead of memorizing lines
Her grades are amazing
She must be a genius
They all think she’ll get into Harvard
In school they love her
She doesn’t get her answers online
Or text her friends for answers during a test
They know so
But when does the world know anything?
She cheats her way to the top
A thrown is reserved for her there
All of the credit goes to her
When others should be getting it
And when they dare to speak up
She denies it
Someone with grades as good as hers
Would never do a thing like that
And the people that helped her
Get tossed to the side
She can always find others
But why would she need them?
She is the amazing one.
On the outside
He looks depressed
Counseling every Tuesday
They have to stop his pain
He wont speak
Or pay any mind to anyone
For all they know hes sad
He is beaming
His world is good
Nothing is wrong
He has the perfect girlfriend
Just like him
The world sees him as miserable
But he is quite the opposite
He trained his face to hide his joy
And that works for him
And that’s all that matters
At least on the outside
Inside the pain never ceases
He wants to release the pain someday
The pain from every little doubt
He wont let anyone in
No one could ever understand
Sometimes he wants to run away
And escape the world
Live in the forest
Where the birds are his family
But he realizes he cant
He must stay and mask his pain
With a little smile
That everyone believes
His eyes have even been trained to lie
“Everything’s amazing” they say
When they mean
“I need some help”
A little comforting
A hug or two
To relieve the constant throbbing in his chest
How much will he be able to hold
Until he just bursts open?
Only time will tell.
Every night something new is happening
The way I dreamed has changed
Nothing used to be the same
Not a place,
Or a thought
Or a person
But now you come to me
Haunting me in my dreams
Your face and your smile
Hanging out or reassuring me
I always wake up happy
When you come to me in the night
But why are you coming?
What am I missing?
What role do you play in my life
Or better yet
What role will you play?
I feel as if you are symbolic
And it makes me intrigued
I want to know more about you
And I want to hang out with you more
I have my suspicions
Maybe they are just hopes
But I want answers
Or even the questions they are answering
Just something to tell me why you are in my dreams…
So lets hang out more
And then I can make up my mind
And find out the answer to my first question
He has been in my mind lately
Surviving off my thoughts
Living in my dreams
Being there in my day
And haunting me when I don’t see him
His smile illuminates the world
Shines light upon my day
Makes me happy when I’m down
And wipes my worries away.
A little glance of encouragement
Is all I need to survive
To go on in pain
And in joy
Throughout my day
So as I walk the halls
My thoughts will drift away
I want to hear his voice
That he likes me too
And that he thinks of me the same
Each bitter rain drop hits the earth
Giant ones and tiny ones
Cold and piercing ones
Down from clouds
I imagine seeing him from across the room
A glare so menacing
Pulling me to question
And to try to get closer to him
Not a word is said between us
But thoughts conveyed
Once or twice
This is boring
What in the world?
What could they be thinking?
The last thing said was welcoming
Want to chill again?
If you want to.
I can’t wait to see him again.
My first competition is soon,
but I have confidence...
I will do ok...
I have picked out the perfect piece,
it suits me well.
All I have to do is practice
To be the ultimate forensics champ...
or at least not come in last place.
There once was a girl that was only pretty at best
But she always dreamed of being a princess.
Sometimes she would pretend her name was Juliet
And waited for her prince to bring the glass slipper that fit
She’d always wanted a Romeo or a prince Charming at least
But she never expected that day would happen when she met the beast.
One night he asked to the ball and his magic spell was cast
Juliet saw past hi rough outer shell and into his heart so vast
It was bigger than the sky, no bigger in fact
Then Juliet realized that it was only confidence he lacked
It was time for the ball and she looked for the perfect gown high and low
But nothing really fit her well so she just couldn’t go
There was only an hour until the ball and tears filled her eyes
But Juliet’s fairy godmother appeared with a gown the attracted all the guys
That night she could have chosen any man until the music ceased
So she chose the best man, her prince charming, the Beast. Read more »
Let down your long hair!”
The maiden peered out her window
From upon the tower
The stretched to the clouds.
You are NOT good enough.”
It’s not that Rapunzel is stuck up
Not at all.
She is just more…
Rapunzel walked away
“The only man I want
Will find a way up
Rapunzel had higher standards
Than most girls
That’s why she is in the tower.
No witch put her up there
(As many believed)
She put herself up there
Rapunzel doesn’t deal with ladders either.
They are unoriginal.
Her man must be original
Good-looking wouldn’t hurt either…
Tall, dark, and handsome
That old cliché works
So until man learns to fly
She’ll be up there
Half of the human race.
The main point that I am trying to get through is that I have learned the lesson of “Not to judge a book by its cover” and that I am a different person because of it.
In high school, you can tell a lot about a person just by what lunch table they sit at. There’s the athlete’s table where the people who love sports sit. Then, there’s the theatre table, where people spend their lives memorizing lines for the next big production. Finally, there’s the table that I sit at. Just like the Caesar salad being served for lunch, my table is a mix. The mix at our table brings us all together, but we all do have one thing in common; we all have a range of things that we love. I, for instance, love writing, theatre, forensics, church, science, and robotics. All of these activities have helped shape me, but joining robotics has had the biggest impact on how I see things.

Dance with me in the snowy fields
Ignore the cold for once
Spin me in the brisk breeze
Come with me and enjoy the season
It’s a beautiful time of the year
We can hug so we don’t freeze
Come explore the world with me
Believe me there is a lot to see
All you have to do is open your eyes
Hug me and hold me
While we go discover life
And break our old bonding ties
A smile can mean so many things
I wish I could decode them
I wish I knew just what was hiding
Behind his devious smirk
Or his almost laughing grin
The Cheshire cat takes over his face
And it makes me smile to see him like that
I just wish I knew what it all meant.
Everything makes her think of him
Nothing escapes her gaze
A single snow flake
The gust of wind
The sun that lights her days
His voice is the whisper in the silence
His face is the picture of everything
She sees him and hears him
Everywhere she goes
And the joy just makes her sing
She wonders if he thinks of her
As much as she thinks of him
Does he day dream of her
During his day
Or even when the lights grow dim?
Hair, nails, book, eyes
Well, not quite
But they are such a deep shade
To match the rest
All contrasting with her skin
Meet Snow White
Silently Lying there
With maybe a smile
Hiding in the shadows
Out of the light
Watching and observing
Maybe a comment or two
Half awake but in a dream
Meet Snow White
A laugh, almost sinister
She grabs for her pen
The vampire by night
She begins to write
As silence fills the room
Its her favorite kind of noise
Meet Snow white
Remembering the promise that she made,
She looked for markers
After she found some
She pulled out the purple,
A color that would stand out,
A color that would be noticed,
contrasting with her porcelain skin
When she was content with her choice
She pulled off the cap
And she began
In giant purple letters,
She wrote “love” on her arm.
