FictionFriday #21

FictionFridays are all about finding inspiration in the craziest of places. This Friday I was inspired by reading.

When I Read
A word,
nothing more than a combination of letters,
a combination of signs,
put together,
turns into sound
once read.

In our head we can hear it,
it comes alive.

The voice of an old man
talking about a memory long lost.

The whisper of a woman
afraid to speak out loud.

The laugh of a queen
after a war won.

The cry of a father
who lost a son.

The shout of a soldier
trying to protect a friend.

They come alive.

The echo lingers in our head
hits the walls of your skull.

And remains

Have a nice Friday.
