When you saw that flash of green light, a sinister laugh knocking in your ears and a searing pain on your forehead, did you ever think that you would start childhoods and set souls ablaze?
When you were locked in your cupboard after your awful aunt and uncle refused to give you dinner, again, did you know that you would soon have millions of children smile at the sound of your name?
When you were on the train to Hogwarts, and you met your best friend Ron, did you ever wonder that we were all on the train with you, we were all excited to go to school with you, and we were estatic to be sorted into our proper houses?
Whenever you felt like you were all alone in the world, did you know that we all stood up, applauded and cheered you on, with grins outstretching the world, tears rushing down our cheeks and glasses similar to yours on our faces?
When you were terrified and thought that you had truly met your sticky end, did you know that millions of people would dress up exactly

Voldemort needs you dead.
Bring your wand, bring your owl,
Make sure Hedwig is fed.
Get on the bike, get on a broom
The burrow is now in view,
Lost only one, only one!
The oldest of the order crew.
Give me a lighter, give me a book
But not the golden snitch.
If there three wizards in the room,
Why is there only one witch?
I do, I do and now they are bonded,
Bill and Fleur are Wed.
Talk to him, and then to her
Saw lynx and then they fled.
Go to alley, go to street,
Dig deep into her pouch,
Drink and duck, stun the men
Until at least one say "ouch"!

Together Fox and Otter trot
Though secrets kept, it mattered not
He fears them all while she fears none
But Deer beware what Phoenix sung:
"To live, then die, then live again"
All held in silver 'till his end
For what is seven, what is eight?
Just ask the Knight, "What is Queen's fate?"
The pawns in question number three:
The rock, the stick, what you can't see
But now that Fox and Otter trot
The choice to heal has saved a lot

For inspiring me to write.
Thank you J.K Rowling,
For taking imagination to new heights.
Thank you J.K Rowling,
For helping me believe
And not just in magic,
But in everything I see.
Thank you J.K Rowling,
For teaching me how to read,
For enveloping me in words
And everything I need
Thank you J.K Rowling,
Just for being you
For writing Harry Potter,
A phenomenon of words; just two.
No story lives unless someone wants to listen.
The stories we love best will live with us forever.
Whether you come back by page, or by the big screen,
Hogwarts will always be there,
to welcome you home.

Harry PotterHarry Potter11 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Once a powerful dark wizard
Entered a house from the moonless night.
He cursed a little boy's parents who died
Instantly in a flash of green light.
The sorcerer then pointed his wand
Toward the child who remained.
But all his powers were gone instead,
And shall they ever be regained.
It happened many years ago
When every heart had flamed.
All because of one wizard:
Harry, the hero, the boy who lived,
Knew none of this at all.
For his uncle's family that adopted him
Had built a preventive wall.
They lied to Harry about his parents' deaths
And forced him to be their slave.
They made the cupboard his room and said
"Look at the space we'd save!"
All this ended when the moment came
On Harry's lucky day.
Hagrid the giant had came along
To take him far away.
Into the magical world he went,
At Hogwarts he found his friends:
Ron the redhead and Hermione
Whose lecture never ends.
Along with them Harry studied magic,
What made chairs fly and tables crack.
Then they dis

"dye your hair and get a tan."
"Okay," said Ann, "okay, okay."
Maybe someone will love me this way.
Barbie said to G.I. Joe,
"the war is over, don't you know?"
"I know," said Joe, "I know, I know."
But where else is there for me to go?
Barbie said to the Gumby doll,
"Green's not really your color at all."
"I guess," said Gum, "I guess, I guess,"
Maybe that's why I'm so depressed.
Barbie said to me one day,
"You'd look better starved away."
"Oh yes," I said, "oh yes, oh yes,"
I could survive on so much less.
Barbie said to the Earth one day,
"I think you'd all look good my way."
"Of course," we said, "of course, of course,"
Wrecking us didn't take much force.
We starved ourselves, we dyed our hair,
and Barbie's out there smiling somewhere.

Granite TearsI once knew a girlGranite Tears4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Who always wore
A ponytail of wispy golden hair
(That you could count on to be
Half falling out by the end of the day),
A smile full of white teeth and pink gums
(That was so bright and wide
The whole room would light up when she walked in)
And a black jacket with
The sleeves rolled up above her elbows,
As if she couldn't stand
To have anything on her arms.
Her eyes were the most brilliant shade of color
I'd ever seen, and I often found myself
Telling the summer sky,
"You could learn a thing or two from her eyes."
I know a girl
Who always wears
Her hair down in front of her face
(And it really did look better blonde)
As if to hide from the world.
Her eyes are the most brilliant shade of color
I've ever seen, but they're dull and lifeless
And I sometimes find myself
Asking the summer sky
To stop being jealous and give her back her blue.
She doesn't smile or laugh
Hell, she doesn't even talk.
She just sits there, like stone
And I sometimes wonder i

She's been breathing in oceans and kissing dreams with open eyes.
And she felt like everything was going to be alright, alright.
And, she let him make her out of vulnerability and hope;
Stupid girl, stupid girl.
He was all ums with starry stares. And she was all pinks of ignorant innocence.
She wanted to believe that he carried a lasso to pull down the sky.
And for awhile she thought he would give her the night.
And, she let him make her give faith a name;
Stupid girl, stupid girl.
She let him throw away her upside-down smiles.
And he promised to never love another heart.
And at the time she had fairy tales embedded in her brain.
While he ripped the seams from the books to sew up her mess.
And, she let him spin those fantastical threads around her already wounded chest;
Stupid girl, stupid girl.
She started to pinch the sandy incriments of numbers counting down the hours.
And he was a daily reminder of why she shouldn't be with someone.
And he only pressed himself more upo

My steel heart rusting,

Pretty as can be.
Took you outta the garbage,
to breathe some color into me.
Not ash nor coal,
to set fire to my soul.
Suck me in.
Spit me out.

Ease my pain and doubt.
Distract me once.
Hurt me twice.
And brighten my life
to a new haven thrice
The pretty little life changer
You and me.
Fill me with color
and set me free.

Hands are shaking.
Palms are sweaty.
Give up your soul.
Breathe in, breathe out.
Pull in, pull out.
Things get faster,
He don't love her,
But on a whim,
She loves him.
Ah, the story gets complex.
You thought it'd only be of sex.
It's starting to get rough.
She's touched him just enough.
Slowly she starts gasping.
The bed she begins grasping.
His movements getting quicker.
The air is getting thicker.
Here comes the big finale.
They're ready for finale.
Moaning a little louder.
His face is getting prouder.
He ends it with a sexy kiss.
She's never felt passion quite like this.
Teen hearts racing.
Hands are shaking.
Still in love just like it began.
Just like it began.

Where to go? "Number twelve",
said Harry at the door.
All was silent, dead and dusty,
'Til dead Dumbledore rose from the floor.
Ron was scared and so was she,
She checked if someone was there.
In came Lupin with news of grim,
'Til Harry had a mare.
"Go back to kid", he did say,
angry and so cold.
Harry now regrets speaking,
To his father's friend of old.
After pains in his head,
Harry had to flee,
That was when he stumbled,
On the room of R.A.B.
He shouted with lot of glee
But then it was of fear,
"Kreacher come and do me this"
"Get locket and bring it here"

For words to speak.
Their bodies hold strong
But alone they are weak.
The time for talking
Has long gone.
When two hearts collide
Singing love's soundless song.
Communication through kisses,
Speaking through touch,
Singing through wishes,
When the desire is too much.

Another day passes and on our knees we cry.
On our feet we fight and we die for our beliefs.
Damned hearts rot inside us.
Devastation arose from the ashes of war.
Cities turning into black dust of endless cries of sorrow.
Children cry silently in the arms of their dead mothers.
The sun never again shines over the black earth.
Wars of endless cries have consumed the world.
All those who can fight are now dead on the battlefields.
Young, old the government doesn't care.
Victory is at stake so every one fight.
And death greets them all at equal sorrow misery.
Once the children laughed and now they cry.
They die because of the greed of the people in control.
The toys in their arms are replaced by guns for killing.
Their games are replaced by war itself.
Another bomb falls and kills innocent people.
Their bodies now rest forever under the rubble of destruction.
Fires of war consume every house and every living thing.
Everything burns in the sorrow flames of despair.

That has "grace" in it, but does not mention God, or Thanksgiving
Or how beautiful and perfect she looks sitting across the room with her
Hair and her eyes and her hands and her smile.
See, I want to find a poem about Grace,
Where she sometimes sits in bed for hours, and tells herself,
"Today. I promise, today I will not eat," and gets out of bed with this firm resolution
That dissolves as she walks past the kitchen,
And she feels like crying and sometimes she wants to google the next solution
"how to make yourself throw up" but she knows she's not that desperate.
Where this 'Grace' character is maybe a little
Maybe a little "not fine"
And she makes holes in her stomach and cries
Over poetry that only matters to her
And friends only she has.
Where this 'Grace' girl can't speak properly
But who's English accent is terrible when she's trying
And sounds like a three-year old when she's not.

My heart burns for you, my lost love
The Dvd has a 2.8 gigabyte capacity.
When we were together, it was bliss
Just like playing Battlefield2 with surround sound.
But then you sniped me from where you hid
And there was no medic nearby
My heart was fragged.
You had hidden your true self from me,
'twas as if you had built a Gap generator, playing as the Allies in Red Alert.
I wondered then, and still do: was it worth using the spy plane?
It was like in the first level of half life,
I didn't know what to do
I didn't even have a crowbar to defend myself.
And metaphorical headcrabs made zombies of us.
It was like playing diablo 2 on hell difficulty,
And being slayed in the cow level,
And not being able to get your body back,
and then having all of your party members declare hostilities.
But with you, my love
I could not save and exit.
You made me feel like nothing
And you did all that you could, to hurt me

When your smile isn't there,
And your hands aren't running through my hair.
When your words fade,
And nothing is okay.
Is it bad that I cry?
Sob in pain.
Terror strikes me when you fade,
When you say, 'I'll just go.',
and there's nothing here.
I lament in sorrow,
like an unholy mass.
I'll preach and scream,
Only because i can't feel.
Numb is my heart.
When you return,
Smile ablaze, cheerful and happy,
The tears will fade,
I'll breathe again.
The soul's lament.
