Another Sirius Black poem, about him in Grimmauld Place


A Cage

Stuck in a cage

Of memories

And reminders

Memories of a childhood

Wished forgotten

And reminders

Of a family

Dead

Some dead on earth

Some dead just to me

And me dead to them

And the haunting…

Tormenting…

Teasing…

Never ceases

Every relic

Every heirloom

Every portrait

And every single

Painful

Long

Hurtful

Glance at that family tree

Where I used to belong

And every screech

Of my mother's portrait

Calling me…

Disappointment

Disowned

Blood traitor

Undeserving son

Secures me tighter and tighter

In the cage

Of my past

In a cage

Worse than forever

In a cage

Of memories and reminders
