Whispers From The Past

I can hear
whispers from the past.

Is the whisperer
nearing?

Do these whispers
bare things worth
hearing?

Do you think?

No.

What if they contain
creatures worth
fearing?

Secrets, unseen
mistakes, and fleeting
feelings, compose
those endings,
whose beginnings
are worth
forgetting and
unfeeling.

Yet, within those
retreating memories,
lay a glimmering
reminder
that not all things
within
these memories,
are painfully
searing.

Instead, see those things
and whisper back,

“Please,
I see you nearing,
come closer.
Of you,
your power,
I am no longer
fearing.”
