Silence

Always-severus-snape-23854963-500-333

The air stopped twisting around him

And the lonely house appeared suddenly

The eerie silence pricked his heart

The flickering light scared him more

He slowly touched the broken handle

And pushed the door open

                                                                          .

His eyes finally fixed upon her

His heart crushed, head swirling

Looking at her lifeless

“This can’t be it, this isn’t true”

He didn’t have the courage

to look at her

He took her by his lap

He couldn’t lament

He was the reason, for everything

As the memories flashed

He hugged her tightly

                                                                                          .

Beside her lay her son

Petrified, with no idea

No idea he won’t see his parents

He slowly crawled towards him

And mumbled,

“You are mine Harry,

You have me.

I’ll give you the love,

which I couldn’t give Lily.”

                                                                                               .

As the tears rolled, he looked at her

“I’ll put my life before you

And protect you come what may”

He affirmed, as he kissed her for the last time

                                                                                                     .

Words!

Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic
capable of both inflicting injury and remedying it.
