Doorways - creative writing

Introduction

English Short Story Doorways Have you ever felt like you don't belong in the world you've been placed in? Everyday the world around me isn't mine; I'm an intruder in my own life. Life never meant living; life meant searching for something else, something real. It was illusions of other places, rippling on the surface of my mind. My life was always a line of maybes, never anything solid to grasp onto. I travelled through life looking through a window and I longed to feel what it was like on the outside, with the sun. Last night, I discovered a hidden mirror into a corridor of worlds; I stepped through the looking glass, into a secret.

I had discovered myself, only to destroy life itself. The universe held in my lying hands. I drew my hand close to the door, the metal scolded, a warning of what was to come. The heat surged through my body and I felt power, I had total control. I felt whole with hell in my hands. I sucked in time, it caught in my breathless throat. Only the world waited for me. I pushed the door. Flames soared and hell enveloped life. I shattered inside; death had come to greet me at last. Still my angel's words echoed off vanished walls. 'Bringer of hell.' And there stood one world, the creation of hell. Your world. Do you think you belong now? English Short Story Page 1 of 2 Robyn Parker 10D ...read more.
