The Catacomb

The Catacomb

Cavern upon cavern devoid of all light

Frightened ghosts scurry for more comforting quarters

Crystal clear water heard dripping in xylophonic harmony

Shiny rock polished by visiting feet

Disfigured skeletons held together with blackened flesh

Stone tablets dying to reveal their faded inscriptions

Torch lights bring form to the piles of dismembered bones

Marble statues guard each of eternity’s planes

Iron gates petrified by rusty rigor mortis rest in pieces

Mildew-covered crucifixes visible through compromised rock

Welcome to eternity, welcome to the catacomb

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
