A HariPo drabble/poem
Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not me. Something that sprang into mind, for a prompt. Read, review, and enjoy!
"We can only hate the person whom we love." —Kazi Shams
Out of sight, out of mind
Welcoming the ties that bind
Seek to hurt, lost but unsure
Survived the war, but failed to endure
He lost so much and gained so little
It was a matter of time before they broke, so brittle
"All's fair in love and war"
Yet now he's alone and poor
She gained a lot and lost not much
Except she shies away from his touch
After all the stomping of her foot she did
Bidding her husband farewell is her best bid
Now His and Her paths cross
Each having suffered a loss
The hate that was there before
Will slowly fade as they adore
He used to be evil—but isn't everyone?
She used to be a child—but now she's one
One of a pair that shouldn't exist
But they defied the order to "desist"
He could've easily loved her mother
With any of her family, he didn't bother
Then she came along and caught his eye
Now she lolls in his arms with a comfy sigh
It was wrong, they both knew
But what could either of them do?
He typically hated her sympathetic type
And she usually bought that Death Eater hype
However… Both looked past their personalities
Seeing common ground revealed possibilities
Turns out they are both proud
And both hide behind a confident shroud
Nymph? Turns out she loves gold
His straight gold hair and piercing eyes are not old
Luce… Yeah, he loves hot pink
That impish smile, too, makes him think
Don't worry about the difference in height
Neither consider it a real plight
And age doesn't matter a bit
Those who worry about it are twits
What matters is true passion
Nymph & Luce brought it back into fashion
But what lies beyond that door
Is so pure and more
She melds her breath with his
It means so much, this
But neither will confess
Dealing with the heart causes too much stress
So they'll stay away from that word
And their feelings will remain free as a bird
Though their past emotions have become a dove
We can only hate the person whom we love.
Uhhh…wow. A 3-page poem. Unusual for me, heh. But I'm proud of it. Lucius and Tonks—they're an unusual pairing, but they strangely work nicely together. In the second stanza, the "they…brittle" is Lucius separating from both Narcissa and Draco, not just his wife. In the third stanza, "his touch" is Remus', because this fic is slightly canon and slightly AU since it's post DH and the Lupins are still alive.
Thanks for reading, and please review!
2016 note: HOLY COW. WOW. I forgot that there were a few times, 6 or more yrs ago, when I wrote a few poem that weren't free verse. xD But I still like this! Also, aesthetically, Lucadora still draws me… -w-
