The Spiraling Abyss

by Angel Eduardo

A spider caught in a sink,
just before the water falls,
doesn’t mind its cell.
It’s just big enough
not to see
that there’s nowhere to go
but down.
Even when the spigot breaks
and the flood comes,
he will struggle
until he drowns,
curl up into a ball
of death,
and spiral
into the abyss.
He knows no other way
to live.

I am a dreamer, as well as a doer, who lives in the North Georgia mountains. I started my publishing journey August of 2013, have had moderate success, but my utmost passion is my "daytime" job, which is working with adults who are constantly striving to better their lives as they obtain the GED credential.
