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

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

Jesi Kay
Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.
