I told myself it was time

Time to let go

Time to move on

Little did I know my heart would refuse

Pounding at my chest

Clawing its way out to meet you

Our eyes would meet

Being me I’d turn away coyly

While your gaze stood still

Seeing right through my facade

I though what we had was powerful

We could destroy the gods if we wanted to

although maybe it was all in my head.

Maybe I was deceived by my own needs

Because I struggle even till this day to understand

Why you did the things you did,

Said the things you said

It contradicted everything I knew about love

But then again what did I know?

I told myself it was time

Time to let go

Time to move on

Because as moments passed

Your gaze began trailing away

your eyes began meeting hers

If only you would have said from the beginning

You had no interest from the start

Maybe then my heart would stop pounding

Knowing its already torn apart.

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.
