Title: Dead

Character: Narcissa Malfoy.

Notes: This is a freeverse poem one the thoughts of the mother that history forgot. I am in love with this, so I hope you enjoy!


Did it make her less of a mother?

It's what she wondered,

when she was dealing with the devil,

dying,

d-y-i-n-g

(dead)

.

Did it make her l-e-s-s of a mother if she,

in all her glory,

LIVED?

.

Because she didn't die for him -

oh, but she would've,

given the chance,

and therefore,

did she love him less?

Did Harry Potter have a better mother than Draco Malfoy

just because she was dead?

.

Narcissa Malfoy always envied Lily Potter.

Lily was a saint

because she loved her son

and Narcissa?

Narcissa was a sinner,

because she loved her son.

.

Did it make her less of a mother

if her darling son

LIVED?

.

Because she didn't fight for him -

of course, she did,

they just didn't see it

(BLIND) -

and therefore,

was she less worthy because,

despite her parentage,

her upbringing,

her husband,

her sister,

her,

she wasn't a killer?

.

Narcissa Malfoy always resented Molly Weasley.

Molly was a lover,

who fought for her son

and Narcissa?

Narcissa was a fighter who,

though no one knew it,

loved her son.

.

Did it make her less of a mother?

Because Lily Evans died for her son;

Molly Prewett fought for her son

and Narcissa Black lied for her son.

She doesn't know if that's

b/e/t/t/e/r or worse...

.

"Dead."
