“Steal away”

I listen keenly, the stethoscope’s applied,

Turning the dial, trying to learn the mysteries inside,

After patient persistence, I hear what I seek,

Cracking the safe, its secrets are within my reach.

As I scan the contents, there’s the strangest of vibes,

Everything I put my hand to, I oddly, recognise,

Oh my days, I’ve literally been stealing from home,

I found my safe place, learning things that I should’ve known.


I’m going to switch it up for this particular piece, rather than me expanding further on its meaning, I’d like you to tell me what it means to you, what does it make you think about, what insight do you garner from it?

Or maybe it makes you feel a certain way, rousing particular emotions or memories for you! Whatever it is, let me know! 😁

So, it’s only 2 days until my brand new book of poetry “Confront The Shadows” is officially available Worldwide, exciting times! 😁 Have you pre-ordered your copy yet? …if not, you’ll find all you need to know about it by clicking here. 😉

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for around two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have two books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Confront The Shadows". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared here, after which, why not grab a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
