A Fleeting Star Can Be Caught By Anyone But Me

A HariPo freeverse piece

by mew-tsubaki

Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not to me. My first Lily/Sirius, and a birthday present for Morghen. xD Read, review, and enjoy!

####################

"I am happy

That I have you

Even though you're not here now

I know somewhere

You are dreaming

Though it's definitely not of me"

Depeche Mode, "It Doesn't Matter"

##########

Lily, dear Lily

How are you

tonight?

I know you're asleep somewhere,

somewhere safe

&& at a place where few can reach you

And I k n o w

that though…

No, never mind

I'll bother you

another night

##########

Lily, sweet Lily

Working for the Order

is straining

&& my thoughts are

G R I M

(nice little pun, eh?)

But it's the truth

When?

How?

Where?

Who?

I know some day it will happen,

but I don't want to think of

it right now

It's…dangerous out here,

So please

keep me in your pra—

No, forget it

You have your life

&&… I'll find mine

##########

Lily, bright Lily

You are the only one seeing

rightthroughme

(and it stings more than that Curse my brother threw at me last week)

James doesn't see

Not even Remus

But

Y O U

There you are, with that reproving look

& those knowing viridian eyes…

Please, just…

Keep those eyes only on

M E

##########

Lily, my Lily

Forget the pleasantries

Look at the world around you

The world in which you live

I know I shouldn't

(I've caught myself a l l those other times)

But I can't stop it

So let me be a snake for once

Let me be human

Let me be a MAN

I know you think of him & love him

(He's more my brother than Regulus ever will be)

But I could make you happier

I could ignite passion

in you

So please consider me

This war can't go on forever

&& I

can't go on without you

##########

First and foremost, this is for you, Morghen. People can love or hate this, but this is yours. So, yes, I finally wrote Lily/Sirius even though I still think he belongs with Ginny. XD But this was fun and very emotional. Sirius is a sweetie; it's the pull of the Black brothers. ;) And there's a sequel, too: "And in the last moment."

Thanks for reading, and please review!

-mew-tsubaki :D

2016 note: Hmm. I do love me some Sirius, but…I dunno. I have mixed feelings about this, but that mostly just 'cuz of my love for Sirius & Remus. XD The writing's not bad, tho.
