Because of what she thought was love…

He hits her, pulls her hair and screams abuse. But his mother can’t guess what her son is like when he tells her he loves her in the morning.

He’s the reason, the reason that she believes no one will love her, the reason that she looks in the morning and sees nothing but hate and anger. Because this isn’t a product of love.

He embarrasses her in front of all his friends. Questions what she’s wearing and why she looks like such a slut. So now she has lost her voice and her identity… but that isn’t enough. He needs to leave a mark, something she will remember forever.

So when the screaming and yelling is done, he strikes her with a metal fist, filled with hate, anger, envy and jealousy. Because this isn’t love.

So now she sits permanently damaged, emotionally beaten and betrayed, because her heart wanted to believe in something that wasn’t real.

Because of what she thought was love.

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.
