Whispers

No, this is not NaNo-related. So shoot me. ;) It’s not very good. I realize that. But I can’t edit it. So you get to live with it. =)

Whispers

There are voices, voices in my head
Calling to be heard
I can never be truly alone
I hear their every word

I am not the one you think
Simple, uncomplicated me
The voices are calling inside my head
Shouting to be free

Every book that I have read
Each character I have known
They haunt my every waking breath
Into my dreams they’re thrown

I am the Eagle of the Ninth
I am the sword in the stone
I am the Eye in the lands of death
I am the High King on his throne

I am imagination incarnate
Bare-footed, red-headed, and smart
I am the wind wuthering over the moors
Possessing my lover’s cruel heart

I am the Greek bearing gifts in the war
I am the outlaw in green
I am the fair maid, searching ever for violets
I am the Moving Castle machine

So, reach out and speak to me
But do not cease to beware
I cannot say which voice will answer
But speak, speak if you dare

…and if you can decipher any of that and tell me who I’m talking about in the fourth, fifth, and sixth cantos, you get brownies. =)
