Where Consequence Meets Lethargy

A HariPo freeverse piece

Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not me. This is my first Draco/Astoria—w00t! 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

"Shh"s

"Tut-tut"s

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!
