is just another day for me
no one looks at me.
No one calls or text
I float though life-like a ghost.
I smile at you and you look right through me
and the moment of finally getting noticed is over.
I try to stand so tall and strong as everyone pushes past me
and when they bump into me they have this look of surprise on their face
like touching me is the only way they see me standing or walking there.
I say sorry because maybe it was my fault too and they just blinked and walked on.
How did I become so invisible that no one seems to see me or maybe they don’t want to and so I wonder what is so unworthy of me that I just became invisible to them all.
It’s like one day I was there surrounded by many and apart of the crowd now I’m surrounded by many and every single person ignores me that I’m there and, so I am the girl in a visible world but invisible to them all with no hope of reappearing again.
