Removing his gaze from the bright stars above them, Scorpius turned his head, the dry, coarse grass rustling in his ears, their sharp blades tickling his cheek.
He stared at Albus, and Albus stared back, his deep green eyes darkened in the dim light but nevertheless sparkled like the night sky. The moon illuminated his light skin, allowing Scorpius to make out the outline of the boy lying beside him.
"It'll never work," Scorpius announced firmly, looking past Al's ear, avoiding his eyes. "It's like we're from two different worlds. I don't want my life to be some sort of tragic forbidden love story, and I'm sure you don't either so we should just stop before-" the words caught in his mouth and Scorpius was suddenly at loss at what to say. "Before something happens." He finished somewhat lamely.
The sound of soft laughter had Scorpius flicking his eyes back to Albus' face. Oh, that was a stupid thing to do. Albus' smile was small and so sincere and tender and actually quit
You're Not A PoetYou’re not a poet because of strung words
Together on row upon row again
Of blank verse or perhaps liberal rhyme.
‘Slam’ all you want, other poets wonder;
Your ignorance of couplets a blunder?
Yes! I speak harshly, but it’s no gross crime,
To point with honesty failed verse of thine.
No real poet discards upper case words;
Lets prose crawl on paper like listless worms.
You seek to free verse of those stern letters,
Sever away bleak capital fetters,
But it doesn’t sing of great speech sublime,
Rather, it sneaks of writing in spare time.
Wait! before you throw me in the icy Rhine;
It’s hard to put verse together in rhyme,
To make our dull words sound great all the time,
Hear them ring out loud, like a clear clock’s chime,
Heralding a poet’s summer prime.
Yet the sacred muses weep at your crime;
Your pentameter mangled thick like slime,
The subject not gilded in raiment fine;
Your bold ink font, crystal waters divine
Tastes bitter to the ton
