When Solitude Is Not Enough

A HariPo freeverse piece

by mew-tsubaki

Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not me. This pairing was discovered by my buddy, Morghen, so please give her a little mention if you write them! Thanks! It is one of many of Mew and Mor's Weird Pairings, most of which you may find in my forum topic in the HPFC, found here (Just take out the spaces!): http : / forum. fanfiction. net/ topic /44309 /25299326 /1/ Read, review, and enjoy!

"Walk with me

Open your sensitive mouth

And talk to me

Hold out your delicate hands

And feel me

Couldn't make any plans

To conceal me"

Depeche Mode, "Rush"

He's come a long way

(& has nothing to show for it)

The torture

guilt

&& anguish

(which is still there)

They pile up,

like a quiet

S N O W

You arrive &

it's not chilly

so much as

uncomfortable

because his heart has melted into

slush

& there's so much to slog through

His dark past

A horrid home life

Being unsure of himself

(oh, & following the Dark Lord, of course)

It's taken a l o n g time

for him to

u n f r e e z e

But it's okay

Your hands

(though small & thin & notverywarm)

will slowly melt that

ice sculpture in his chest

(called a heart)

Forget about all the bad moments

in your life

If anything,

f o c u s

on how both of you have lived the same life of

trial&error

(though you attract more errors for results)

&& see

that some good can come from bad

Because g o o d

is all you see in his

(purportedly)

cool, grey eyes

Oh, Drucy is a darling pairing, though I adore Drolly, too. :3 But this is so nice, kind of a companion piece to "Kindred Heart, You're Not Cold." I strongly suggest you take a peek at that one-shot, too, if you can.

Thanks for reading and please review!

Thank you for betaing, Morghen! *gives the real-life Craigthony* Because "you're worth it." Oh, bad pun, bad pun, couldn't help it. XD
