Profound concussion unleashed
cataclysmic upheaval ensues,
currents reversed, chasms forming,
depths dredged, plains scoured

Profound concussion unleashed
breaths of boiling anguish
churn the deepest crevices,
fissures spit magma into the tides

Colossal city - Hidden in the depths
Megalopolis - Unknown to land dwellers
Colossal city - Once resplendent
Megalopolis - Rent asunder

Vast basalt structures
deprived of their former splendour,
dwellers simultaneously
stupefied and pulverized

Reefs reduced - to vestigial carcasses
Reefs reduced - to barren plains
Reefs ruptured, crushed, decimated
Reefs reduced, to nothing

Within abyss, the depth of depths, beyond the spasms,
Neath temple seal, with stygian purpose, a sentience awakens


from The Great Dying, released June 16, 2014
