On finishing HP7… (**CONTAINS MINOR SPOILERS!**)

It’s late. (EARLY.) It’s 3 AM (…*drifts into singing “3AM” by Matchbox Twenty*… “I must be lonely..”) Anyhow… I just finished all 759pages of HP7. I don’t want to give anything away to those who’re still working on the book, but I must say, I speculated pretty darn well.
Horcruxes … I was on target
Dumbledore … I was on the right path
Snape… I was SO right.
Deaths…not whom I expected
Harry’s fate… I was right
The method of accepting said fate… I should have seen it coming, but didn’t.
Harry’s Final Outcome … I was (gladly) off.
JKR’s final word … I had guessed “love” which it is not, but it is the tone. (She’d said it was to be “scar” but changed it in the 11th hour)
Now I need to sleep.

I am content.

torch bearing quietly

I will not act out, will not
yell or curse or slam doors,
will not make a scene -- you
do not deserve such a chance
to make an example out of me
to be proven right since you
are not. Instead, I'll stand
at this street corner, raise
my hand high and clench that
light which yet remains. It
will burn brightly, quietly,
fiercely before fading as I.

Then I'll be gone but found.
