This is great. I like angsty poetry about Draco, too, especially angsty poetry about Draco and his need for some sort of redemption. This fits the bill nicely.
The repetition of the sentiments regarding Draco and his burnt bridges added an incredible brooding quality to the poem as if he were really going through his past and the decisions he made.
Misting my hands and my heart with a/ Sweet crimson rain that never washed away;/ No matter how many times I tried to cleanse them.
I love this image. It's very reminiscent of Lady Macbeth trying to wash her hands clean.
Well done. ~Carole~
