The Walls Whisper Lingers

The Walls Whisper Lingers 

In this room of rooms,

the walls whisper what has been 

witnessed, all the comings and goings, 

faces and names all different,

each sharing their human foibles 

and wobbles, their tales 

of intimacy, terror, and love. 

The walls whisper lingers. 

I am the latest to hear

both their holy and unholy 

whispers, aware now

that when I leave this 

room of rooms, 

the walls whisper

 will linger, with me.
