He was my favourite poem –

not the smooth words printed onto a crisp, clean sheet of paper

but the messy splotches of ink, words and emotion

that painted the flawed surface of the page with an image of

iridescent colour under the black and white contrast of ink and paper.

While initially slow, I soon fell in love with the hidden meanings of the words,

the beauty they held and how at times

it reflected thoughts from my own mind and

its emotion resonated within my soul.

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.
