Clary
Beautiful boy.

So tall and graceful.

He looks at me like I’m a ghost.

 


I can’t help but stare.

He smells like soap and sweat.


I should say something before he thinks I’m an idiot.

“Hey.”

“I-I’m Clary.”


Jace
Beautiful girl.

So small and lovely.


She looks at me as though I’m a murderer.

I must stop staring.

She smells of coffee and paint.

I need to say something or she’ll think I’m going to kill her.

 

“Hello.”


“Jace.”

This is a two-voice poem based on Cassandra Clare's, The Mortal Instruments. This is an alternate reality in which Jace and Clary meet for the first time.
