“Oh for goodness sake!” says she, with arms raised up.
He stares at his feet, blushing, he can’t speak up.
“Where have you been?” she demands, voice quivering.
“Um…” he stumbles, “um… I got lost, while… delivering… “
Her eyes widen in disbelief, “I can’t believe this.”
“Well,” he starts, “it was rather dark in the abyss.”
“Oh, the abyss,” she scoffs, “I’ve heard that before.
Next, you’ll tell me that you fell through a trap door.”
“Actually yes!” he says, eagerly.
She looks at him, sceptically.
He explains, “I dunno how I got stuck there, you see.”
“I didn’t know what I was lookin’ for, to break free.”
“Until,” he continues, “I saw you on the other side.”
“And I knew, you were my saving hope, my guide.”
“Those words are rather sweet, but you’re wrong.”
She replies, “It’s you, I’ve been looking for all along.”
They smile awkwardly at each other.
Happy to have found one another.
Yes, this poem was inspired by Ron and Hermione, no matter what J.K. says, they belong together!
Ron and Hermione forever!
