Cheyenne Joyner

The girl in class

I’ve seen her
She sat next to me in class
She never talked
Her head was always down
Isolated
That’s the word
Isolated
Not willing to open up
She wasn’t at school today
Or the next
The speaker turns on
The announcements are read
One special announcement
At the end
Of a funeral
For a student
Who was afraid

Death Proposel

My hair flying in the wind
My face is hit by the soft rain
I wait by the bridge
He's supposed to be here
Here he comes
His face shows his nervousness
He reaches into his pocket
A box
A ring
I say yes
I jump into his arms
He spins
I kiss his wet lips
My hair is soaked
The rain is coming down harder
A car swerves
It misses me by inches
I hold my face in my hands
Underneath the stars
Lies a dead body

I take notes
The teacher keeps talking
I look at the clock
One minute left

The teacher goes to his desk
Wishes us a good weekend
The bell rings
I run to my locker
I turn the combination
My hands are shaking
I open my locker
The note falls
I pick it up
I AM STILL THINKING OF YOU
I HOPE YOU THINK OF ME TOO
IT’S ABOUT TIME YOU KNOW WHO I AM

Unexpected Death

Walking towards the building
Going in
Drinking
Smoking
Hours later…
Walking... stumbling out
Fumbling with the keys
Unlocking the door
It was a nice car
New
Driving home
Switching from one lane
To another
Swerving in the road
Running lights
Hitting mailboxes

In the other car:
Driving home from work
Going to see wife and kids
