My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

April 19, 2011 “invisible”



 I am lost

I am no longer

where I once was

where I should be

where I thought I would be

where I could always find me


 I am faded

a shadow in the waking world

dim and disappearing

wan and waxen

a faint pattern on threadbare cloth

worn thin


I am

like warm breath on the cold windows of a dream

vaporous and fleeting


I am



without reflection

in the mirrors

in the blue pools

of eyes that will not see me


I am

    Insightful…the wit and soul that I have always believed in is in rare form.

  6. Tracy – I am so glad to see you back. You’ve been missed … This poem is haunting and sad. I read it several times and each time I was yearning to be seen as I read.

    Beautiful!! I hope all is well.

    Regards … D
