The Underdark

 

—————-

Underneath the light….

Below the morning’s gentle mist…

Lies a twisting blackness…

Lazily rolling…

Subtle and crafty…

Lurking just beneath the surface…

Only visible by the sound of its whispers…

Soft mutterings

Floating through the air like tiny bombs…

in danger of finding nearby ears…

And planting themselves deep inside…

changing the mind…

Transforming the soul…

Til the darkness underneath…

Explodes to the clouds…

With no need to hide…

or shudder in the shadows..

anymore..
