“Whisper” / Memorable Fancies #1732

[“Why do I tell you these things? You are not even here.” – John Ashbery]

All the things I should have said to you ago, or meant to say and couldn’t bring myself to: now I’m finally ready to say them.

But since you’re not here, no one will hear me. And even now I can’t bring myself to speak. I dread to hear my voice, saying these things. So I whisper; almost whisper, anyway.

Meant to whisper, I mean.
