The candle at the corner  of the room was flickering. A boy wrote yet another letter to his beloved. He wished he could summon the strength to send those little notes and poems to her.

Like a pretty little flower

You bloom, with the lover you shower

I am enchanted, like the Astronomy tower

You give me all my strength, all my power.

He knew he couldn’t write good poems, but poetry always fascinated him. If I ever find a reason to let you go, I’d find a million reasons to make you stay. Oh, how he wished he could write better than that!

Hi Lily,

Remember that time I made you laugh for the first time? That is the best I have ever felt.

He couldn’t think of how much he loved her-was it her eyes or her sheer brilliance? Was it the way she treated him or was it the way she smiled? He didn’t know. He couldn’t know.

 You’re a demon, hurting me

You’re my muse, creating me

For you, I breathe,

For you, I’d stop

My heart beats faster when I’m with you

My ache grows stronger, when you’re away.

Oh, the pain- the heartaches he got without her. He wished the smile etched upon her face never leaves its position. He hoped her eyes never lost their charm. He knew he would never hurt her.

You make me love you

Without a thought, I fall for you

Every time you call my name

For my cowardice, I feel ashamed

I wish I could tell you

Pour into you, my hear

My love, I’ll stay true

To you, for you, but never depart.

He wished he could tell her everything- everything about his crazy feeling, the butterflies. Tomorrow, he promised himself, as he’d been doing since the first time she smiled at him. Tomorrow, he promised himself as the candle went out. Tomorrow.


Of Remorse

Severus and lily

Seveus Snape and Lily Evans

Hello, all! 🙂

I know it’s been a long time since I posted anything, but I was kind of busy with my board preps and all. So Sorry. 😦

So, i thought i’d do a headcanon. 🙂

Severus stayed awake all night. He had done his job. He told The Dark Lord about the prophecy. He had no idea what that meant, though. He thought about what he did. He thought it was going to kill some wizard. Some witch, and their kid. He did not care. What was that to him? Who were they to him? I couldn’t care less, he told himself.

But then, for some unknown reason, the picture of his love flashed before his eyes. He thought about Lily Evans. He thought about the only girl he ever loved. He thought about the only person he ever, truly loved. And he wondered. He wondered what she would have told him. He thought about all those times he had let her down. He thought about all those times he hurt her. And then he cursed himself. He cursed himself for cursing James Potter. He thought about how they all hated him. And then, it struck to him- it wasn’t their fault. It was  his fault. To have acted like a… he couldn’t even think of a word. Why did he have to act like that? Like he never cared? He wouldn’t have lost Lily Evans if he didn’t call her a Mudblood. He shouldn’t have.

Would he be forgiven now? After all this time? He could go there and tell Lily and Potter- The Potters, he reminded himself; how truly sorry he was. They had all grown up, right? They could all act mature. He would be forgiven. Okay, maybe not forgiven, but would be heard out, at least? He wished. He prayed.

Yes, he told himself. He would go and apologize. Everything would be better than now, he hoped. But he didn’t know that The Dark Lord had other plans. He didn’t know that the Dark Lord had figured out that the prophecy meant the Potters’ son-Harry. He didn’t know. He couldn’t know.

To him, and her.

When childhood wishes dont come true,
When what you planned all fell apart,
Dont give up, ‘coz there were worse
Like Lilly and Severus, and the way they loved.

That one mistake, that one twist of fate,
That changes who you are, that erases your place.
And then, a million regrets and twinges of pain, you have
The way you’d beg for another chance
That you are ready to enter the lion’s den, unarmed

Everything’s a mess, you feel,
Till you see that one ray of hope.
You catch it, and then, grow with it,
You catch it and drive with it,
Till you feel you’ve done your best,
And that is what life is all about.

And then, you rise with a new dream,
Of saving others, while killing yourself
And then, you never give up, coz you know that there were worse
Like Lilly and Severus, and the way they loved.
