Listen

I promise
This whisper is not
A lie
I was told
It was just a little
Shy
It’s waiting
Just behind that book
A noise
Calling a name
Come
I’m just too scared
To look

Strangers

“Mom told me to not talk to strange people so I stopped talking to her. She got mad and told me to sit on this wall and think about what I’ve done. I’ve been here for two hours. I have been thinking about chocolate for 110 minutes. Do you think she’ll know?”
