Unintelligible Susurration


The Sound of Guilt


The sound follows me
Wherever I go
I ask if they can hear it
They only say no

I seem to have gone mad
But I know I have not
For I still am conscious
And know I will not rot

Irrational swatting
At the sound in place
I think it is a fly
Oh woe! It leaves no trace!

It's finally stopped
The sound I mean
All along it had only been guilt
That cannot be seen

Poet's Notes about The Poem

'The Sound of Guilt' was inspired by an annoying fly buzzing around in my room. I was writing other works of poetry at the time but I couldn't concentrate at all. So, I decided to write a poem about it and voilà! The birth of 'The Sound of Guilt'. i hope that with this little story about how my poem came to be lets people know that poems can be inspired and be about just about anything! :)

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
