I have already posted the first I Remember poem up here but I thought that I would include it when I posted the second one so that you could see the similarities//differences. Enjoy!
I Remember [part 1]
smiles in the hallway,
eyes locking, then
blowing off tests,
during passing period
during passing period.
and friendly hugs.
I Remember [part 2]
playful hugs and angry stares,
the silly language of high-school courtship,
the cold silence of a break up,
broken pencils, lost textbooks
and missing assignments,
half-empty classrooms and
all day field trips.
hour-long exams, mile-long runs
lunch table giggles and
the nights spent staring at the cieling
early morning texts,
unfinished homework, extra credit projects,
too-long pep assemblies
lunchtime anthem rehearsals.
final exams, ice cream labs,
passing notes with half of Chem class
teachers' lectures, Valentines Day blues,
and cheesy pickup lines,
fancy dresses, loud music, 3-inch heels
flag football, locker room gossip.
