TRIGGER WARNING: DEATH
SPOILER WARNING: LORD OF SHADOWS- CASSANDRA CLARE
High above the Council Hall,
The golden clock began to chime the hour.
As if the world didn’t care for her,
As if the world didn’t ache for her loss.
My eyes brimming with tears,
As my heart tries to cope with what I’d seen,
A small whimper as my hand reaches my face,
Trying to push the sobs inside me.
I hold her in my arms,
Her head heavy in my lap,
Heavier than she’d been,
Like the soul leaving her had burdened her.
I brush her hair away from her face,
Willing her to come back to me,
Can’t imagine a life without her,
A life without my dear little sister.
The anger bubbling inside me,
Shaking my ever steady hand,
I pray and I pray and I pray,
But I feel my prayers going up in smoke.
I plead her to open her eyes again,
I beg her to stay by my side,
I feel the light go out of me,
I’m alive but I’m dead inside…
