The day I realised you loved me

I know that you have been sad

That you miss me

And being there without me

is hard

I’m sorry I don’t come to visit more

It’s just about finding time

But when I came to surprise you

The look on your face spoke a thousand words

The way you looked atop the staircase

The way you dropped your bags to hug me

The way you held me for so long

The way you cried when you had to leave early..

I remember how much I love you.

I asked you if it was really so bad here without me

You said “yes.”

And then I realised that you loved me too.

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.
