End Of School: Farewell English Teacher

End Of School: Farewell English Teacher short poem

Photo by Reiner Girsch

Today is the day we separate
Today involves a change
I hope I don’t suffocate
From the information I’m about to exchange

You were there for us
Not as a teacher
From the school to the bus
A best friend’s feature

Hope wasn’t only from Emily
You gave it too
I found no storm could abash me
Your kindness made me blue

You think Quinquart shows a passionate love
But it can’t be
Compared to how you lifted my heart above
The fate of misery

I showed hatred towards books
Even towards myself
But you gave us the look
Your constant smile, one among special shelves

You understood our situation
You gave us hope
You gave us the very sensation
Give up? Nope.

Crush of holy hands on blue skin of a flame was the wet revenge of a withering rose. That defiant streak bursts with knowledge of a sin. White and black, this was me and my unwrapped flesh. Dirty glory of

The End

The End short poem

Much can be said But we speak in hushed tones Curt with our responses Hiding behind the wall of vulnerability We hold our breaths in anticipation Who will be the first to crack ? Unsightly in the walls of protection
