Not Yet

Don’t you dare.

Don’t you dare come back.


I’m begging you.

I’ve been doing well without you.


That sounds harsh, but don’t. Not this time. I’m still trying to find myself again.

Why? Why do you always come when I’m most vulnerable?

I was just starting to get comfortable in my own skin.

I hadn’t cried for a while.

I’m already in pieces.

Don’t you dare come back.

I’m not strong yet.

Don’t come back.

Not yet.

About haringeyunchained

Haringey Unchained is a collective of students aiming to show case the creative talent of Haringey Sixth Form College in Tottenham, London. We think that through the promotion of our creative thoughts, we can educate our community, bringing to the foreground the critical and creative consciousness of a vibrant school in a deprived part of London. We are endeavouring to provide this blog as a platform for our community, giving the space to those whose work otherwise might not be seen or read. Being that the cuffs are off, we are able to express through our photography, art, short fiction and poetry, what’s really on our minds. We are free.
