If walls had ears!

If walls had ears!

There was a time when my words had a flow,

But deep inside me I felt inertly hollow,

As the world’s ears had something else to follow,

Slowly my words withered and turned shallow,

Feeling miserable, I hid my words in a vanishing burrow,

I wished if the invisible walls beneath had ears to follow,

To wake my words to bring back the bygone flow…
