Get What You Want
A HariPo freeverse piece
Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not to me. Yet another birthday present for Morghen. XD Read, review, and enjoy!
"Come out, Tigerlily
You're caressing me
I'll take you up
I'll turn you on
I'll take your apathy
I wouldn't lie to you, Blossom
Won't you let it go?
I'm gonna give you all you want"
—La Roux, "Tigerlily"
If ever he had a goal in life,
it was to have
H E R
When they first met,
it was a want
But time went on
& she became as n.e.c.e.s.s.a.r.y
as the air he breathed
He flirted shamelessly with her
It wasn't too bad from his view
When she sometimes flirted back,
hurt b a d
Because it was only ever a
g a m e to her
James gave her flowers again
He asked her out again
He told her "Iloveyou" again
& she toyed with him if she
felt like it
But at some point,
he managed to
B L U R
&& it was hard to see if he'd only ever be
that handsome devil
if he could become the gentleman she so desired
Because he might have been able to appreciate
the…"beauty" elsewhere in the world
but Lily was always his one,
&& her light encompassed him
So one day, when those lines were completely abolished
He encased her light in one gem
& presented it to her
And "they lived happily ever after" almost makes sense here
(despite how their fairytale went)
Awww… Sad, but nice. :) Despite how we know their story ends, at least it's fun getting there. James and Lily are great…though I hope people notice. Lily's…kinda a Mary-Sue. James loved her. Snape loved her. People love writing Remus and/or Sirius loving her in secret, too. And she was bright, beautiful, could charm most of the teachers… O.O! Many people liked her… O.O! But even I still appreciate good ol' James/Lily.
Thanks for reading, and please review!
2016 note: Yeah, six yrs ago, I could still appreciate Jily some, but…ah, well. Still, not bad.
