A Poem by Cara

Listen!
Can you hear it
It is here
Or is it there
It's everywhere
In my hair
In that chair
Whispering in your ear
Telling you who to fear
Can you hear it
Are you scared
Does it sting
Is it near
It's right here
Can you hear it
What does it say
Will you listen
Do you dare 
What's out there
That's not fair
Tell me why
Tell me where
Can you find it 
Is it there
Can you hear it 
Listen!

Featured Review

How interesting that this can be read both as a children's poem and also as something far more sinister. Do you mind if I point out a couple of things?
- Its right here - should be It's
- Do you dear - I'm guessing you meant to write 'dare'

Back to its overall feel. I can 'hear' A A Milne (Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin) quite clearly. But at the same time I can't quite shake the sinister edge. Very clever!

Regards

This is a fun bit of absurdity, if such I may call it. It's mysterious in its subject ambiguity, but it also a bit humorous in its frantic questioning and snappy lines that rhyme at the most random moments. Well done!

Thank you XD
I liked the poem. You left the reader with some questions. Can you hear? Sometime whispers can lead us to wrong places and decisions. I like the tone and the directness of the words. Thank you Cara for sharing the amazing poetry.
