A poem on a Greek myth about a mountain nymph called Echo.... and the prompt: echo XD

A Voiceless Echo

Hello?

Hello? 'Ello?

Hello? 'Ello? Llo?

Hello? 'Ello? Llo? Lo?

Hello? 'Ello? Llo? Lo? O.'

O, how I wish to sit in the light!

O, how I wish to sit in the light! Breathing, suffocating, repeating.

Long to be a voice, not words

Long to be a voice, not words reverberating off walls of enclosed spaces,

Long to be a voice, not words reverberating off walls of enclosed spaces, Enclosed as I am in this curse.

Break away from the illusion

Break away from the illusion of a false friend and comfort.

In perpetual anticipation

In perpetual anticipation of someone to hear.

Not just their own words,

Not just their own words, but my proclamations.

Though now they die,

Though now they die, lost praises never to be heard singing.

H e l l o ?

... So, if you don't know, I am a BIG fan of Greek mythology. This piece was about a mountain nymph, called Echo, who was cursed by Hera to only be able to repeat the last words that another person just said. Cool myth, right? Thanks for reading!
