Whispers - Poem by TPAC Alexander Coppedge

In a set stare within the seams of views,
bare mind stripped peering out thinking,
eyes locked on in emptiness in a dare.

Looking curtain by side to hang it rose,
snap whipping pop in front of my nose,
then feelings a felt hose of utterances.

I know I saw a misty form in movement,
capturing in the ear a tone low it heard,
flow of a cold dead chill go by of a body.

Visions seen by a show rush men acts,
their opening given back at curtain row,
return again bow at last touch home soil.

I turn backwards to occurrences fright,
having me no vision by any precise sight,
visitor is right here in pad hitting doors.

Inside home safety found shaking a tot,
this fact I'll not deny said a wooing noise,
traced I'm a dazed programmed bot.

Guest comes speak to me slow words,
not I understanding fully wow his notes,
statements that are heard spoken low.

Sounds of sin image beyond to tell a fall,
my pin post of life about spooky things,
blowing in the wind hearing tin noise.

Specters unknown seen black
shadows. Reality in the
Holy Text identity out of
flesh a ghost. Have ghosts
who you call?
