The Prompt: Whisper

Last Updated on

The Prompt 147: Whisper

Gossip
murmuring, swirling, following.
Behind hands,
or blatant in its visibility.
Have you heard?
Did it really?
Must be true,
not surprised, not surprised,
not surprised.

Whispers,
that bite and pinch in their cruelty
leaving marks, invisible but
indelible.
Inescapable.

Isolated, but surrounded.
Leave me alone
(please, talk to me).
Leave me alone
(please, help me).
Heard, but misunderstood.

Gossip
muttering, churning, following.
Eyes watching,
while lies are spread openly.
Have you heard?
Did it really?
Must be true,
not surprised, not surprised,
not surprised.

Whispers,
that stab and pierce in their spitefulness,
leaving cuts, deep and
lasting.
Inescapable.
