Invisible

The sky is grey,

Tall buildings all around

My eyes turn to the girl,

the girl walking alone

down the street.

 

I’m invisible.

 

Through the rain

she walks,

Hood of her jacket

thrust back.

 

I’m invisible.

 

She stops,

stares,

at something that’s

not there,

Does she see

me?

 

I’m invisible.

 

She walks on,

her eyes

downcast

But she saw

me.

 

I’m invisible.

 

They don’t want

to see

me,

So they don’t.

No one does.

 

I’m invisible.

 

But she saw

me,

She knows

And that’s

enough.
