Wrath of the Gods
by Ela Lourenco
My lifeless body drifts in the seas. Thus, it has been for many a year. Bottomless black waters torment me. There is nothing, no one, except brief glimpses of sky-scorching lightening – it seems almighty Zeus has not forgiven me. My centuries being pecked apart in Tartarus, half living half dead… even that did not his fury appease.
Finally, even as my immortal shell perished, he cursed my soul to linger on. Buried with no coin to pay my way, condemned to forever meander, lost and alone in the seas.
Charon, that wretch, sails by daily, a smirk on his faceless skull as he denies me the journey to my final resting place…
