Wow! Great poem! I think you did a great job catching what the evidence in the books show! Cyns
just reread my own review...i meant metaphors not symbolism!
*whistles*..This has to be one of the loosest DH spoilers ever!..The thing is, you only know it spoils DH when you've read DH, that's when you understand that this tells Tuney's *giggle* story from beginning to end. My post-DH poem is colored with blatant spoilers :-).
Anyway, I love all the symbolism you used, it made the beginning very powerful. I also liked how you actually tol the story of Snape, Petunia, and Lily, leading all the way up till the final time we see her in DH. It was beautifully written. Overall, it makes you feel very sorry for the life Petunia has had to live, being left out in her childhood, especialy.
That was truly a beautiful poem. It was deep and made me think about all the hardships Petunia would have gone through throughout her life, living a normal life when all she wanted was to be extrordinary like Lily.
Then, along came Harry who would grow to be a wizard, and Petunia had to watch again as he took the life she wanted more than anything.
The way you wrote it really makes your reader think. Fabulous job, 10/10.
Wow! That was a great poem! good job!
