April 13th: Voices

Prompt: Write a poem based on something you heard a stranger say.

All those whispers in the hall

It makes me feel like I’m about to fall

Thinking about what they are talking about

And without a doubt

I heard…

You see him, they say

I feel like their prey

Don’t listen I hear

There I see my peer

Taking me away from my fear

He tells me, you hear?

And that’s when I listened

And heard absolutely nothing
