I’ve been hearing whispers in my closet lately,
I especially hear them late at night.
The whispers are so loud and apparent,
It’s hard to really get any sleep.
I just listen to the whispers all night long,
Since it’s impossible to ignore them.
I moved you both in my closet
Because I realized that I can’t leave you both just lying around,
Bloody and dead on the floor.
You both needed to be put somewhere safe,
I was thinking about burying you both,
But I’ve lost too much blood,
And I’m close to dying I think,
I don’t have the strength or energy to bury you both,
So putting you both in my closet was the best that I could do.
I was surprised that you were alive for so long,
While he just died right away.
I never really liked him,
And I honestly enjoyed killing and stabbing him multiple times,
But I’ll admit that it was hard killing you.
I cried when I was stabbing you,
And I just couldn’t kill you right away like I did to him.
I had to keep you alive
And give you a fighting chance.
I remember you struggling to breathe,
And trying your best to crawl and move around,
In your pool of blood,
But there was nothing more you could do,
Your body was useless thanks to me.
For a few days,
You were barely able to move,
I watched as you coughed up blood,
And struggled to breathe.
It looked like you were just in so much pain,
And there was nothing you could do to save your own life,
Instead you were just whispering.
You were whispering a lot,
When you were dying,
And I never knew what you were whispering.
Maybe they were whispers of regret,
Maybe they were whispers of hatred for me,
Maybe they were whispers of a dream,
There could have been so many things you whispered,
But I’ll never know,
And I’ll never be able to escape your whispers
Because they will always be in my closet.
