She Whispers

Location

I sit quietly ignoring the pain, but she whispers to me. I try to eat, but she whispers to me. I try to laugh and almost succeed, but she whispers to me. 

 

What is she whispering?

 

Hate. Slander. Lies.

 

But I devour them. I'm so hungry I'll eat anything. 

 

Even if that costs my life.
