Monday’s Muse: Invisibility

Alright. It’ s Monday, and though I’m running behind today, I am at least here and getting a post out to you. Things have been a bit on the busy side lately but hopefully things will slow down after the 22nd.

Today’s poem is one I wrote last month. It’s about a feeling I think everyone can relate to, that being how sometimes we all feel as if no one sees us. The truth is, we are seen. Someone listens and hears us even when we think no one does. We are not alone in this world, though we often feel as if we are. But no one is invisible. We just don’t see those who are watching us.

Enjoy Invisibility.

Invisibility

By Jessica Scott

ย 

I am not here.

I am nowhere.

I exist as a figment in your mind.

I am nothingness,

I am no one.

I have no body you can find.

ย 

I do not live,

I do not breathe.

I have no heart that beats.

I do not eat,

I do not drink,

I have no mouth that speaks.

ย 

I do not think,

I do not hurt.

I cannot feel my pain.

I am nothingness,

I am no one.

That is all that remains.
