The whispers came

Quietly scampering

As if in a dusty attic

“Go away” she cried

Hoping they’d listen

You don’t matter

They would taunt

You never did

You never will

They continued

“Go away” she cried

Trying to mute them

But they stayed

And they fed

On her anxiety

On her frustration

On her self doubt

On her pain

Growing louder

Growing bolder


She stopped crying

She stopped hearing

She stopped hoping

And slept

And slept

And slept

Just long enough

For the voices

To starve

Void of her emotions
