Whispers
assail
my unquiet mind
echoing victims
of past misdeeds
Whispers
of jagged sentiment
clog my heart
with knowledge
that friends
once so real
are only plastic
Whispers
of a tormented child
wreak havoc
on a mind
obsessed
with detail
Whispers
of slanderous spite
carve deep
flaying open my soul
Whispers
speaking of peace
well up from within
cloaking thought
in impenetrable
fog
Whispers
and pleas
spill silently
from lips mute
with untold
despair
Whispers...

I think life is full of whispers too. But perhaps we should listen and act on some of them. Loved this.

Whispers can be good - they get your attention...and they can be bad - if you listen to the mean whispers, you may only hear the hurt, not the words.... I like this though...you're in a 'free verse' mood I see.

Whispers from within and from without. This is very well done Dream. I like this very much.

It relieves me to know that someone else hears them, too!

This was beautiful. Thank you for sharing it.

Loved this, Scott, especially the line "that friends once so real are only plastic." I too know the pain of that discovery.

Excellent Scott! You have a good ear for free verse, not hindered by your problems with tone....I think you should write more in this style, it suits you and seems to work very well.....this one also flowed nicely and seemed very well structured. Good stuff

I've never minded the whispers ... it's the screaming that undoes me. Speak to me in whispers ... DreamEvil, you got my attention.

'Tis when the whispers become a shout or worse, hot breath behind you, that you truly need to worry.
