Eyes of Innocence, Luv

A HariPo freeverse piece

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!

"She knows your mind

Is not yet in league

With the rest of the world

And it's little intrigues"

Depeche Mode, "Little 15"

%%%%%%%%%%

Remember that first i n k l i n g

you had to join T H E M ?

(it's okay; she remembers, too)

You hadn't given it much

thought before

But you had all the

reasons

for joining y e a r s ago

%%%%%%%%%%

Everywhere you look, there's

the family

Bella&Cissy& (distantly or by association)

Lucius&Rodolphus&Rabastan&Evan&Mulciber&Yaxley

&& a few whose faces have just

f a d e d away

And, suddenly, that stupid phrase—

peerpressure

taints you because

you've SUCCUMBED to it

%%%%%%%%%%

There was one last chance you had

a sliver of

l I g H t

& a sparkling laugh

Really, it was kind of funny

that her hair is the color of a…

maltedmead

(go on, chuckle; you know she would, too)

That memory is

imprinted

in your brain &…

%%%%%%%%%%

Her attention

(affection)

was n o t enough

The laughter in her eyes faded

as your thoughts

D A R K E N E D

for she ended up knowing you well

(you wish you could've known each other better)

& she fretted about the

pit

into which you were about to fall,

from which you'd never

return

More Regmerta! :D I love these two; they just mesh and I think that they're one of the few sad pairings that I really enjoy reading/writing. And this song helped, because it painted a pretty clear picture in my mind. Try listening to "Little 15"—like most Depeche Mode stuff, it's excellent!

Thanks for reading and please review!
