NaPoWriMo, Day 19 (belated)

Today’s prompt was to write about the Narcissus myth, but since I already did that on my own, I decided to take a different approach and write about Echo, the nymph who loved him but couldn’t speak other than to repeat his words.

ECHO

Hello?

hello

Can I see you?

I see you

Are you trying to say something?

say something

I am!

I am

Wait–who is that in the water?

in the water

You’re so beautiful.

beautiful

I could just climb in

climb in

like wrapping myself in a wish

wish

If only I could be

I could be

steeped in your eyes, so much more

more

beautiful than the words

than words

my humble mouth could say to you.

to you
