Where Consequence Meets Lethargy

A HariPo freeverse piece

by mew-tsubaki

Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not to me. My first Drastoria! xD Read, review, and enjoy!


"What am I trying to do

What am I trying to say

I'm not trying to tell you anything

You didn't know

When you woke up today"

Depeche Mode, "Nothing"


He wakes up to a…

n e w day

&& for him,

each secondminutehour

is encompassed more

in the dark

No coddling will help



the "There, there"s

—they're ridiculous

She'll never be able to

R-E-A-C-H him

It's because

—though he has all he could ever ask for—

he'll never be complete

A great family & life

is o n l y good when one

has a soul to enjoy them


Dark and short, yet very expressive… I think I, like many others, wonder what truly became of Draco and his mentality following the war… Hmmm…

Thanks for reading, and please review!
