I stumbled upon a sudden thought
Brought on by thoughts of you
That maybe you and I have always been
Bound by more than anyone knew.
It was not so long ago
That we talked for hours into the night,
And was it not but recently
We talked the night away into first light?
Is it not true that you and I fight
But fights that never seem to last?
Is it not true that you and I know
How best to pierce with the most hurtful dart?
Have we not seen the others’ most
Absurd behaviours and laughed as one?
Nor seen glistening sorrows in our eyes
And comforted till there were none?
Has not the night sky our secrets heard
Shared across distances vast?
Have we not guessed without words,
What thoughts churn within our hearts?
So tell me how it could not be,
That you really are a part of me?
The missing half of my splintered soul,
The accidental Horcrux keeping me whole.
