There is a Harry Potter sized hole in my heart
shaped like a lightening bolt
it oozes red memories and sweet filling.
I have searched for something to plug the leak
but sparkling vampires just cannot compete.
I used to eagerly await the date of release
first for the seven books
and then the movies that became eight.
Now that they are gone I find myself flailing
compared to Rowling others are paling.
Mocking Jays, Iron Thrones and zombies
offer some needed reprieve
but they truly are not giving me what I need
Quidditch and cauldrons and Diagon Alley
Witches and Wizards and the House Elf Dobby
All of these have become precious to me
and cannot be replaced by just any new story.
So, if you share the ache of that hole in your heart
don’t be afraid to stand up and take part!
We shan’t be alone in all of our pain
because we’ve got lots of online communities
where we can whine and complain.
