The Deep

Unknown forms of life collect on the ocean floor;
in the murky, dark depths.

Strange forms that barely resemble their
shallow seas cousins;
seemingly deformed and mutilated.

Mortal combat are fought here
between unusual enemies;
teeth against tentacles.

This is a place where trickery and cunning
is rewarded with food;
where a source of light and beauty
easily becomes a trap.

Food is a rarity,
not a scrap must be wasted, 
whether it be a bloated carcass or a kill.

Dangerous vents where
water meets the core of the Earth;
steam and poisonous gases
kill creatures 
while other thrives
on the extreme climate.

A true mystery
that'll never be solved.
