Why did you do?


Why did you do that?

Why did you try to leave?

You knew this would break my heart

I told you to take care of it.

You knew this was a promise of yours

I made you promise it.

You knew I would be yours anyway

I showed this to you.

You knew I would come back anyway

I promised this to you.

You knew I wouldn’t let you go

I ensured you of this.

You knew I wouldn’t treat you the same though

I made you aware of this.

I didn’t know how nice it was

To feel this heart of yours

I saw how fast it was beating inside you

I had to take it as you didn’t deserve it, did you?

I didn’t know how nice it was

To see this blood of yours

I didn’t mean to take this one away too

But I had to as you didn’t deserve this either, did you?

For once since it began

I’ve given and I’ve taken.

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.
