Broken boy

Leave the broken boy,
proud and arrogant boy--
See the broken wings,
binding his spirit to this path,
he stumbles.
See the flickering halo,
hanging cracked and disheveled above his head.
Leave the broken boy,
kneeling at the crystalline lake.
See his smile tremble,
embers in his eyes, tumble,
as if lost in a breeze.
See his muscles tense,
in agitation, in defiance.
--Stubborn and desolate.
Leave the broken boy.

This poem is GORGEAUS!! (I always spell that wrong). The vocab you used was beautiful and full of imagery. I love that you wrote it about Jace- one of my favorites characters in the world. You captured him almost as well as C. Clare herself. :)
