A Poem a Day (34): Abyss

Not sure what I was thinking about here. I dreamed of zombies last night, so maybe that explains it! I was imagining something in the sewers... what could it be? I leave it up to you! :)


Into the abyss
It dives, writhing,
Rising on the tides
Hurtling forth;
An arch of triumph
Splits the rain
Surging in, scattering

Anonymous feet rush,
Splashing through,
So oblivious now
To the starkness,
The empty rawness
Of the world below

Patiently, it waits
Down in the depths
Of endless dark
Beneath the streets;
Scaled and coiled,
Ready to spring...
