--->SPOILER WARNING!<---

I wrote this poem for a book series called The Mortal Instruments.  If you have not read the final book, City of Glass, this may ruin it for you... then again, maybe it won't, but I wouldn't take the chance. ^_^

Jace's Second Chance


Forced to hide my deepest desire,
Pushed out by the one I love most,
Pain licking at my heart like fire,
I open my mouth to boast.

Betrayed by my father, lied to and fooled,
Treated like an ignorant child,
Pride is torn, battered, and bruised,
I put on an arrogant smile.

Hurt by and hurting those that matter,
Hunted and cornered like prey,
Faith escapes while all my hopes shatter,
I run out of kind words to say.

Denied again, with my heart out to you,
Loved, though you won’t let it be,
Chances are taken, choices are few,
I pray for someone to save me.

Hated in my own heart of hearts,
Angered and seeking to mar,
Poison is shot out at you like darts,
I wonder if I’ve gone too far.

Resolved to make things better for you,
Unconcerned with what happens to me,
Goodness overflows - this is something new,
I guess it was not meant to be.

Defeated by his blow that I failed to parry,
Saddened - my deeds were too few,
Death comes quickly, I’m so sorry, Clary;
I fall; my last thought is you.

Silenced, once and for all, it seems,
Awakened, then, I don’t understand.
Life floods into me. Is this a dream?
I hold your shaking hands.

Humbled by my unforeseen second try,
Prepared and eager to start anew,
Love and joy pour out from your eyes,
I start my new life - with you.
Yeah... this is what happens when Kandee gets bored and reads her favorite book series.... again....

For those of you who read it (which would be AWESOME people ;) ), this is supposed to be from Jace's point of view. How he's feeling through his "forbidden" love with Clary, Valentine's betrayal, etc.

Enjoy! ^_^

Jace and Clary are (c) Cassandra Clare, not me.

That poem is really good! I have never heard a poem so deep (and I'm telling the truth). You can really tell how Jace is felling by just reading it.
