Deep Dark Shadows Frighten Me

I hear voices whispering
In the dark shadows quietly.
Speaking a language I don’t know.
Although I think it might be Greek.
I overheard by accident
An isolated incident.
I do not know if I should speak.
Although it happened long ago..
I still remember vividly.
I found the voices threatening.
I do not think they noticed me.
But can't be sure that they did not.
Perhaps I worry needlessly.
I tend to worry quite a lot.
