i have one thing just for you
a special little gift
i'll pass it to you with whispers
silent wind drawing you close

tell a single soul
and your lungs will collapse
the precious secret betrayed
i'd be careful with where you speak

    Whoa! I'm not sure if you did it intentionally but you used a lot of sibilant sounds and it really adds to the whole effect of whispers and secrets, it's really effective :)
    re: tysm! I used a reference generator so hopefully it's all correct :)

    oooohhh this series is giving me chills—each poem is more than strong enough on its own, yet when read together, they're breathtaking. each one feels mysterious, haunting, deeply emotional, whispered with passion.
