a version of nighttime

A HariPo freeverse piece

by mew-tsubaki

Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not me. An idea I had, to do a blackout poem from my freeverse, "light reading," but I had to cut out what was "blacked out" because of the site's restrictions. *sigh* Except this is a Remus/Sirius FV :] Read, review, and enjoy!

oOoOoOo

"i like

an innocent

moonlight

in the world

"me, too"

oOoOoOo

the night is

from above

light won't

calm the dark

they both

wait for night to fall

oOoOoOo

—the sound of

looking for something good,

a cure for stress

looking for something good,

a cure for being

turned

oOoOoOo

they reach at once

"i want that"

a smile brightens his brooding face

brows arch

relents

be the one here, after all

oOoOoOo

his friend

likes to escape sometimes

for

the wrong

he wonders about himself, too

…clever…

…angry…

dark

"no, not dark"

hope

oOoOoOo

one thing

of old

but nevertheless

one thing

he wishes the outside world

is simpler

oOoOoOo

eyes wander

pretty

and he hurts

a twinge

a stab

lost beat of heart

oh.

so this is like

oOoOoOo

and

one into another

and he's right

but always believe

someone like him, someone who

would like to be

the hero

believes he's got a right

oOoOoOo

he feels it

a little

he'd like to smile more

laugh more

debate more

in his face

he's a lot more than he realizes

ah, yes…he is…

a flame

his favorite

oOoOoOo

though his eyes drift elsewhere

he doesn't give up hope

he feels for him when

he relies on chance once more,

a chance

oOoOoOo

"i like night"

he tells

nods and pauses and can't focus

sits and sighs and can't bear it

to have been so dumb and blind for so long

words catch

feelings

emotions

thoughts

"me, too"

oOoOoOo

they think it answers

another quest.

oOoOoOo

I had a classmate who was surprised to learn I wrote so many freeverses, and I was equally surprised she did blackout poems, which I liked but hadn't before done myself. Until now. And the subtle slashy-ness between Remus and Sirius… Ahh. -w- Angsty romance for them is sooo good.

Review, pleasey! And thanks for reading!
