The Consuming Creature

Swirled into the unknown

frantically grasping for stability

venation is radiating

beyond its ability

Quickly dropping

symbolic to life

the creature is falling

into chaos and strife

Landing on a strange world

welcomed by a leaf

the creature devours it

like a thief

Not giving thought

to others that come behind

leaving nothing

putting others in a bind

Swirled again

this time into the pits of hell

following a creature like it

who knew him all too well

Another creature falls

choosing a different way

taking only what is needed

leaving some for a future day
