Invisible No More

my love affair with words

who is this?

who is this

that I am

it is not me

speaking this way

walking this walk

living this life

loving this man

I’m not who you

think I am

I’m me

not this person

that you see

who is that

it isn’t me

brushing my hair

dressing my body

I am not there

you are not talking

to me

who is it?

oh my God…

.

it’s me

.

walk away

Leave me alone
let me be
let me shift back into
invisibility
don’t eyeball me
with your closed eyes
and your stained heart
leave me be
I’m not here to please you
if you don’t like me then walk away
i never asked for your friendship
and I don’t want it anyway
not if you constantly
look at me
and roll your eyes
and tsk your tongue
you’re not any better than me
you never were
and you never will be
just leave me alone
don’t come round here no more
just let me be
I’d rather be alone
then looked at as if i am crazy
i’m not
i’m just me
and if you don’t like that
then just turn around
and walk away
you’re not welcome here
anyway

that which…

that which…

that which is empty and

clean and dry

.

that which…

that which is aching

inside of me

that which

 .

I tried to see that which

lies within

but it’s too expensive to

see

 .

that which…

that which is hidden

inside of me

remains hidden

forever

 .

that which…

that which I hold so

dear is lost

.

that which…

that which forever

tears me apart inside

remains hidden

that which

 .

.

this mirror lies

this person

in the mirror

it is not me

I am not she

i am not her

I can’t be

i don’t feel

grown up

i’m just a

child

playing make

believe

it’s not me

in there

I’m not that

girl

with tiny eyes

and plain brown

hair

those wrinkles

they aren’t

mine

they can’t be

because I am

not her

and she

is not

me
