Invisible

Today I told someone hello.
They didn’t say it back.
Today I smiled at someone in the hall. They didn’t smile back.
Today I looked in the mirror to see if I was invisible.
Turns out I’m not invisible — then why can’t anyone see me?
Today I made a fake Instagram account under a trendy name from the 1960s to see whether I knew any people who had real Instagram accounts.
All of the accounts were private save for one.
Today I forced myself to be happy for a particular past crush who posted lots of pictures on Instagram with his new girlfriend. Hurrah.
Today I looked at everyone’s smiling faces and wondered why I wasn’t smiling with them.
Today I wondered why some people are complete idiots.
Today I told someone hello.
They didn’t say it back.
Today I comforted someone who said she had no love life.
I didn’t have the courage to tell her that I’ve never had a love life
Today I told someone I write poetry and they laughed at me.
Today I cried in front of a mirror while singing a made-up song that wasn’t even sad.
Today I told people I was fine when I really was not.
Today I looked in the mirror to see if I was invisible.
I wish I was invisible.
If I were invisible maybe it wouldn’t hurt so much ’cause I know I’m here but people refuse to see it.
Can I please just be invisible?
1. Today I told someone hello.
2. They didn’t say it back.

  1. Oh, that is so emotional… I totally feel you.
    All I have got to say to you is that you shouldn’t lean so much on people’s attention. Try to be more indifferent and people will notice you then. Try to care about you more, about your education and you in genre. People will notice you when you get better, and you don’t need for sure someone to tell you that you are good at writing poetry, you know you are, and I believe in you!

  3. This is one of the best posts I’ve read so far. The concepts of being ignored, far from the world, being laughed at because you write poetry (I mean that’s totally insane) the smiles and the stories… How I feel when I’m invisible even though I’m not. Lots of love and hugs!๐ŸŒนโค๏ธ
