I'm Sarah and have been writing fiction for years. I got into Harry Potter fan fiction after I read Deathly Hallows and have been an avid reader/writer of it ever since. I am a senior in college, majoring in psychology and minoring in English. Next year I hope to go to graduate school for library science. My other interests include animal rescue, knitting, art, and graphic design.
I am new to poetry writing, but here is what I have come up with so far. Hope you enjoy!
"I think you should sit down."

You looked up to him. He was your hero. Then he left you. And I hated him for that. You never saw how bad it really was. You were so young you only saw the good times. You may never see this, Iris, but I just want you to know that I love you and I only want the best for you.
Companion piece to Bringing the Magic Back

Alaska Avenue was where I grew up. It was a run down street on the outskirts of town and most people tried not to look at it when they drove past, but it was home to me. My mom didn't understand why I was so upset when the town decided to destroy everyone's homes and turn the street into a strip mall, but there were few things about my life that my mom actually understood.
