Dawn in the Orange Grove

The Sadness Will Last Forever

Vines clinging to crumbling stone
The same way your sweat soaked sequin dress
Stretches over your hipbones
Do they ever get tired of reaching
the brick slipping away just as they’d taken hold
Do you get tired of running
Letting go of men like hot coals




Look at this


I’ve never made this connection before…at the beginning of DH Hermione tells Ron and Harry how a wizard who’d split his soul could heal himself, save himself…remorse

oh, harry

Harry James you precious baby

I’ve read this second bit before, the whole try for some remorse thing, and thought it was just a Harry stabbing in the dark, but nO

It was so calculated

He remembered that conversation

Hermione’s research

actual, possible redemption for Voldemort

he kept that hope, however slim, that Voldemort could be saved

before they cast their final curses, after all that happened, Harry was actually trying to get Voldemort to mend himself back together

Harry james potter you compassionate jerk trying to save your mortal enemy before he utterly and finally destroys himself

This is everything
