Something always brings
me back to you.
It never takes too long.
No matter what I say or do
I'll still feel you here
'till the moment I'm gone

"Piss off, Potter!" I screamed at his face. He was so bloody annoying! Everyday was just a tumult of embarrassment and humiliation - from this guy and his posse. James Potter is always chasing me, Sirius Black is always pulling pranks, Peter Pettigrew is always tagging along and being a total snob, and Remus Lupin is always looking up new spells and potions for them to use in their next prank. Today, they had been unusually quiet, which could only mean one thing. Then again, Sirius, Peter, and Remus were all in the Hospital Wing with concussions.

I found it funny that James was looking at me like I was talking in Chinese. Hmm... I think I'm going to start talking to him in Latin, just to mess with him. What, you didn't know that they offered Latin at Hogwarts?

You hold me without touch.
You keep me without chains.
I never wanted anything
so much than to drown
in your love and not
feel your rain.

"What?" James sputtered. We were standing outside. It was midday on April 17, 1976. The sky looked like it was about to open up and a flood would just fall upon us.

"I said, leave me alone! Abi!* I don't want to talk to you! Infact, I would rather that you left -"

He had completely ignored me. Instead, he decided to grab me by the elbows and kiss me. On the lips.

Truthfully, I had liked James Potter. Ok, like is an understatement. I really didn't want to break up James back in November. But he had decided to hurt me - by secretly sneaking around with my archenemy, Malia Tarkington. He claims that she gave him a love potion, but I couldn't believe him.

Set me free.
Leave me be.
I don't wanna fall
another moment into
your gravity.
Here I am and I stand
so tall, just the way
I'm supposed to be.
But you're on to me
and all over me.

He pulled away slowly, savoring the kiss. I had closed my eyes, and I held them closed until he had pulled away. I opened my eyes slowly.

"You really shouldn't have done that," I said softly.

"I wanted to," was his response.

I had a moment of hesitation, I jumped on him, holding him close. And then, we locked lips.

You loved me 'cause
I'm fragile.
When I thought I was strong.
But you touch me for a little while
and all my fragile strength is gone.

The kiss seemed to last forever. I had to finally pull away for air. We just stood there, a five-foot-two girl and her new six-foot-five boyfriend, looking into each others' eyes. Those gorgeous hazel eyes... and my so-called extravagant emeralds. Yeah, I'm not really thankful about my looks. I actually think that I look below average. Every guy in Hogwarts - and Durmstrang, for their school came to our school for a few months this year, would beg to differ. In fact, they've been here since the beginning of the year because of a fire that had burned down their magnificent school. Anyways, James put me on the ground.

"I love you," he said.

"I love you, too," I said. "I have for a very long time now."

Set me free,
Leave me be.
I don't wanna fall another
moment into your gravity.
Here I am and I stand
so tall, just the way I'm
supposed to be.
But you're on to me
and all over me.

We walked back into the great castle, hand-in-hand, not caring if people stared. A burly Durmstrang boy approached us.

"Lily, you can't be with this stupid neanderthal. You belong to me, remember?"

"Um, excuse me?" We turned at the sound of my best friend, Alice Nikholi storming forward.

"What did you just say about my best friend?"

"She belongs to me," the idiot repeated.

"Lily doesn't belong to anyone, except for me and James, you big git!" She drew her wand and in a second, the kid's face was covered in big, purple pimples that kept growing and exploding when they reached maximum growth and emitting blue pus from the open sores. He screamed in pain. He ran down the hall in terror. We laughed at him as he ran away.

"Today has been an excellent day," I said, squeezing James' hand.

I live here on my knees
as I try to make you see
that you're everything I
think I need here on the ground.
But you're neither friend nor foe
though I can't seem to let you go.
The one thing that I still know
is that you're keeping me down.

*Go away/ leave me alone in Latin.
