#99 (broken by brazen words)

chambers

filled with the

cluttered remains

of ancient fury

floating around

savagely glowing

fireflies

he swallowed

a sword

to replace

his missing spine

 sharp metal

chafing skin

stretched too tight

too many needles

had punctured

his flesh

sometimes

carefully sealed chambers

are broken

by brazen words

 fireflies

come out

to slay

wreaking havoc

in their way

*30th December 2016
