A monster

they broke your bones
severed your skin
ripped the heart out from your chest

your old you

crushed by cruel

until a darkness grew
a darkness that bred
as quick as fire,
a Targaryen child
devouring your old muscles
like oxygen

the absence of light
is but
a cocoon,
made from the pain
they rendered you,
elementary in the

as the pupils dilate
and the neck grows,
and the skin turns into black leather
hands become claws
teeth, sharp daggers

savagery awakens
and the mirror no longer
a reflection

perhaps a shadow

a strange resemblance
to a remote carcass

but the beast is new

their acts succeeded

they planted

a monster

in you
