Bio:

I am a recent member of the Harry Potter fandom, but I have always had a passion for the written word, and I hope to fulfill it here. I live in a relatively boring corner of Idaho, and I like Kokanee and a good book!

So, I suppose you're wondering what's up with my username. Even if you're not, this is how that happened. No, I was not aspiring to be a Gryffindor. I can't think of any house to which I would belong less than Gryffindor, in fact. It was a moment of clarity that I got while I was battling with myself about whether I should want to be Sorted into Gryffindor to be like Harry or to be Sorted elsewhere and follow my own path. I thought it to be much like the contemplative scene in Hamlet when he weighed taking his own life. I'm not trying to be melodramatic. That's simply is what popped into my head when I was trying to sign up to leave a review. :D

If You Only Knew by ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 5]

Summary:

If you only knew
I'm hanging by a thread,
The web I spin for you.
If you only knew

Heart before I'd lose you.

If I drown tonight, bring me
Back to life.
Breathe your breath in me;
The only thing that I still believe
In is you.

If you only knew...
