I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
Marked

Converse: black
Title: Marked
Characters/pairings: Harry/Draco
Author's Notes: Dedicated to pushdragon, who said she didn't think Harry got it. I thought she was right, and this is the result! This is the sequel to Harry/Draco Haiku (a suggestion for an actual title would be welcome!)


He understands.
He knows I love him. He speaks -
And my world shatters.

“It covers the Mark well.
And I'm flattered.” I smile, pleased;
His mouth twists. He leaves.

~*~

He thinks it’s to hide
My pasth, that’s etched on my face?
On each Malfoy part?

I follow him to...
The Manor. Of course. Sitting
In his old room, not crying.

~*~

He follows, of course.
He never could leave things alone.
My jaw clenches. Hard.

“What did I say? What?”
He’s infuriating and
Confusing. Damn him.

~*~

I can anger him.
Always could. Or inspire lust.
No ‘because’. Just fucks.

He doesn’t answer.
Just steps close, breathes on my neck.
Next moment – the kiss.

~*~

He kisses me hard,
I give as good as I get.
We start stripping.

Heat-haze in my mind.
Twist his nipples, make him yell.
Then I see his arm.

~*~

Stop. He grabs my arm,
Holds it up in the dim light.
“Why did you get this?”

He ran off because
I didn’t understand. Now
He looks at the mark. Silence.

~*~

My chest heaves. I can’t.
The tattoo was meant to say
All this for me. Fuck.

My fingers tighten.
Fingerprint bruises left over
The inked name. Harry.

~*~

“The Dark Mark was forced.
Made me his. But I’m yours now.
And I chose this Mark.”

I stare; step closer.
He flinches. I stroke my name,
Until he can smile.

~*~

“Love you,” I choke out.
His fingers freeze. I can’t look.
The silence lengthens.

That’s why he did it.
A declaration in ink.
He couldn’t say it, so...

~*~

At first I assume
It’s because I said I’m his.
Possessive bastard.

I understand now.
I see the moment he knows that,
Our eyes meet. He smiles.

~*~

We kiss slow and sweet.
We sink to the floor together.
Here, in the Manor

New allegiances
Sworn. Coming whites out the world –
We come back entwined.

Oh I love this! Incredible how old sentiments seem fresh in this new form. I was aching for Draco by about the fifth stanza, and the last one is just gorgeous.

This is such a treat! I don't think your original *needed* more, even though I craved it - but what a delight to see this continued. Amazing how you can evoke the passionate, half-angry sex in so few syllables. Draco only has to breathe on his neck - what a wonderful image!

Thank you very much - it's lots of fun trying for brevity, since generally I am SO verbose.

This one's great, too! The first one stands on his own just fine, but more is always welcome. The brevity of the form only makes it sexier somehow.

This is good, I like how it's not so well in the beginning, but they start understanding each other. So beautiful!

Thank you so much! I can't see either boy as being great at communication, but they get a happy ending anyway.
