I'm surrounded by a sea of faces,
Yet I feel like a solitary ship.
My teachers' and peers' words feign friendly,
But they hint at an arctic nip.
It's my first day of high school,
And I'm lonely for you.
We were supposed to do this together,
To get each other through!
But because of their cruel utterances,
And thanks to their mean-spirited hearts,
You now go to another school, another realm,
Setting us worlds apart.
I have a faithful few of friends,
But none of them equal you.
None have seen what we've seen,
Nor have they done what we do.
So stepping through the doors
I try damming up the tears that threaten to break through.
It's the first day of high school,and I have friends,
But none of them are you.
***Dedicated to Kia***
