Breathing. I hear breathing.
It’s shallow, a little fast.

Listen deeper. Tell me what you hear.

The rain, tapping at my window.
But it’s strange. There’s almost a pattern to it.

Listen beyond the rain. Tell me what you hear.

Voices. Soft voices.
They’re calling out, but I can’t tell what they’re saying.

Try and hold onto those voices. Tell me what you hear.

I’m trying, but they’re too far away.
Wait. There’s another. This one is closer.

Tell me what you hear.

His voice is deep. He’s telling me…
He’s telling me to sleep.

Listen for something else. Tell me what you hear.

Breathing. I hear breathing.
It’s shallow, but not as fast.

There must be something else. Tell me what you hear.

I hear the sea.
It’s warm.

The sea? Tell me. Tell me what you hear.



Tell me what you hear.

Silence.
Raindrops dance upon the page, blending ink with sky.
My thoughts blur, weeping from the paper
As the wind chases the lie.

Leaves flutter softly; so much green on them still.
They dance with enthused beauty
Beneath the feet of ill.

The willow tree enchants me, beguiles me with its tales.
A soliloquy of mystery
Whispered from the tendrils.

Echos drift across the river, dreams seek its bed.
The moment forever fleeting,
I rest my weary head.
I'm not one person,
I know that now.
I keep one caged,
Deep down.
I hear it sometimes;
It screams,
I smile.

Caylee-Slansen
Caylee Slansen
Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
United Kingdom
My pen name is Caylee Slansen (an anagram of my real name).

I live in the Yorkshire Dales in England.

I'm a Software Developer, but creative writing is my passion. My writing style varies. I'm a horror fan, and as such a lot of my work is horror themed. However, I do like to write quirky pieces too so you may stumble across a few of them.

My favourite poem is "Jim; who ran away from his nurse and was eaten by a lion" by Hilaire Belloc.

As a warning for my potential gallery viewers / readers, my poetry may be seen as "untasteful" or explicit for some readers, so sensitive readers please take heed. I have placed maturity warnings on such work; you have been warned!

LLAMAS - There is no need to thank me for llamas :) I like to use the random deviant tool and check out your pages, and whilst I'm there I usually leave a llama!
