24 (who?)
My stomach flips,
my breathing gets deep,
I'm sorry love but
please just let me sleep?

It's hard to live
taking day by day
when it seems to pass too fast
and you struggle on the way

What future awaits me?
A small dog, swing on the deck,
the picket white fence and
a fake family in depth.

A kiss on the cheek and
lunch in paper bags,
a promise to behave
but love, the days just drag.

Will it be the same routine
that I face right now?
A fake smile and laugh
that struggle to be found.

The passion fades
with the will to explore,
and you grow older along with
the slamming of doors.

Your voice screams,
your heart will echo,
the mirror will shatter,
and the blood will flow.

And one day you'll look
and take a deep breath,
you'll stare into your eyes
and see nothing but death.
I have one year left of high school and I realized that I'm terrified of moving on from such a huge chapter of my life...this was the outcome of those feelings.

I've just finished school and moved on to college. I was just a scared and this poem portrays what I felt perfectly. But you know what, moving on hasn't been so bad. Thank you for sharing a lovely piece, and good luck in the future! :D

This is the perfect poem to sum up what awaits after high school
Thank you for stating it in such a sublime way~

You're not alone in your feelings. No matter what it is, I can guarantee that someone has felt that way before, and will feel it in the future.
Right now, I'm the percentage with you

thank you so much, and it's good to know that I'm not facing this alone at least :)
Yes, plenty of suffering to go around! xD
But seriously, we'll be able to get through it
We may not want to, but we'll be able to~
