Like a moth
Hovering
Gray in the darkness
Waiting
Creeping close
On gentle toes
Shadows creaking
Barely breathing
Poised for flight
With wings uplifted
Voices, murmurs
The door unyielding
Footsteps beating
Heart pounding
Silence forgotten
Fleeing

This is very good! You're imagery is amazing and even though it is a shortish poem I got wrapped up in it and felt like I was about to be caught eavesdropping! Great poem! And if you get a chance please check out some of my work. Thanks :)
