Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!


The Beyond 
by Ela Lourenco

Banished, exiled, cast out of my home

Left to rot in this nowhere place

Shivering with immense heat, all alone.


Punished by a society of self-righteous sinners

My pleas of innocence, ignored and refuted

I lost, the truly evil ones, the winners.


Pushed through the portal into this desolate place

Where the heat melts the sky into the sea

And survival is an elemental race.


The only creatures here, skeletal crows and decaying trees

The odour of the poisonous putrid swamp bubbles up

I must survive, to one day be free.


They think I have died; no one survives the Beyond

Either you starve or melt to death, corpse feasted on by crows

Yet they do not know, I have managed to break my bonds…
