Invisible Woman

A year ago, this poem struck a chord with my readers. What are your thoughts today?

Meanwhile, Melody Muses...

Silent,

I slip among you –

The Invisible Woman.

I eat your food,

I laugh at your jokes,

I nod and smile at words

brittle as bones and nourishing as chalk.

Skinless,

I leak and stain

but your eyes perceive it not.

You see sunsets and flowers

and babies and happy endings

and paint over cracks with

an invisible brush.

I am from an β€˜other’ world.

Silent,

I slip among you –

The Invisible Woman.

    I feel like this sometimes

  2. Debbie says:

    I wrote an invisible poem recently .. not for the blog, but just between God and I. πŸ™‚ God bless you!

  3. This poem is also new to me. The emotions beneath a “pretend happy” facade seem to stream out, it feels painful and healing at the same time.
