    dotsShh Whisperdots

    Shh, whisper, or the past is going to get you...
    Shh, whisper, you don't want to die...
    Shh, whisper, and nothing bad can get through,
    In this place where even truth is lie.

    Be quiet, so the monsters will not find you...
    Be quiet, or you will be caught...
    Be quiet, you know my words are all true,
    In this place where even time is bought.

    Don't move, lest the darkness find you...
    Don't move, it is coming near...
    Don't move, it is coming into view,
    In this place where the only truth is fear.

    Scream, run, cause I'm gonna get you...
    Scream, run, you will never survive...
    Scream, run, I'm on the back of your shoe,
    In this place where your past is alive.

      unique and very very neatly written. I especially like the contrast of the last stanza to the rest of the poem. I can almost hear everything exploding into sound as the dead silence is broken.

    loving the stuff you write so far

      If you want pauses between the words, I believe it would have worked better if you did this for example:

    Or the past is going to get you...

    You don't want to die...

    And nothing bad can get through...

    In this place,
    Where even the truth,
    Is a lie"

    and so on and so on. etc, etc.

    This will lengthen the poem and add more mystery and creepyness to a possible voice by pacing the text, much like the pacing of certain top rated thrillers by keeping the readers on the edge of their seat.

    You should not have to explain everything to the readers. Normally people know when to pause by reading it like this. A publisher wouldn't want an explaination with every poem. The poems have to speak for themselves, even if readers can see things differently than other readers or even the writer.

    All in all, this is a very good, creative, and thought provoking write. Keep up the good work.

    Take care,

      Really unique and cool. I felt as if this would be a whisper in my ear following me as I try to run from my past mistakes and regrets. If that was your goal you certainly acheived it and if it wasn't well that's what you got.
