Whisper, whisper, in the night....

By torn_beauty

I woke up sweating, dreaming nightmares, has it been so long?
I could hear them screaming, praying for hope, I recognize their call.
My hands are shaking, I can feel the pain, why had I forgotten?
Waking up the sorrow, they are touching me again,I remember why.
I shut my ears to their voices, So much pain-just so much, I can hear them in my mind.
Despair has come to claim me, I can't help-helpless, why can't I stop their sobbing?
How do you touch, Raining tears on me, the hills-alive with the suffering.
How do you explain, so much emotion-overwhelming, Breaking down again.

'Whisper, Whisper in the night
we have come to terrify.
Let us reap the pain
from the hills to the plains.
chatter, chatter in the night
we have come to watch you die.'

I woke up sweating, reaching out again, has it been so long?
I can hear them dying, wracked with the emotion,I know their call.
My hands are covered in blood, numb now from the pain, I had never forgotten-just ignored.
Trying to kill the sorrow, they are apart of me, I remember the feeling.
I can't shut out their voices, taken aback for the first, the buzzing in my head.
My spirit is slipping, my dream quest not begun, why am I a coward?
How do you express, terror is building, where do we begin?
How do you show, the lock is coming undone, What can stop it all?

'Tasty, Tasty, taste the blood
watch it drip on the floor.
Dying inside, fading out
screaming, Whimpering
listen to the fear.
Watch them fall, and the land die.'

Whisper, Whisper in the night
We have come to terrify.
We have come to stay
and watch you all decay.
chatter, chatter in the night
we have come to watch you die.'

screaming in my head, they all shriek, my ears-the pain.

'looky, looky, we're inside.'

    sinister in a way, but helpless. great write, loved the use of repetition in the quotes.. makes the "voices" sound more childlike and mocking. lovely write.
