Give Me a Message

Give me a message … just a message

To tell me you are still thinking about me,

To tell me you are in the same train with me,

a train that is taking us to the same place.

Please, mind the gap between love and hurt.

This is not Acton Town station anymore,

This is ‘’I have been hurt before’’ station.

This is not the Piccadilly line service to Uxbridge,

This is the line which you can’t cross that goes to my heart –

And the door’s closing.

Please mind the door, because

Once it’s closed, you can’t open it again

There is no key for it.

This train is moving fast and

won’t wait for you.

So if it’s no, wait for the next one.

The next train is coming in …

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.
