The True Ending to Harry Potter

What happens post-salvation of Hogwarts?
On a cold night, Harry bends to his will,
forces his fingers deep into his palms,
and digs his nails into the empty space of black air.

The winter freezes atop olive rooftops,
scraping sky sounds, driving rings of sorrow to wrap his throat.
He calls for a friend in the twinkling break of time
as he grasps at the midnight’s fair film of past.

"What is it, Harry? Is something wrong?"
Ginny asks in the suspense of his cry.
Where the hippogriffs fly across ancient stretches of falling snow
to meet the magic of the south, Harry’s eyes go as well.

"I just want to be a kid again.
I just want to be a kid again.
I just want to be a kid again.

I was a hero before I lived,
and I’ll never live again.”
