The Invisible

Floating through like a shadow.
I whisper as i pass you by.

Did you feel me as i breezed behind you?
Did you smell my skin as i walked through you?
Did you hear me as i moaned your name?

I am the wind.
The breeze that kisses your skin and slips through your searching fingers.
I am the forgotten.
I am the invisible.

I leave no footprints as i walk the sands of time.
I have no fingerprint to tattoo my humanity,
I have no identity;
No face.

I pass through your life like a ghost.
From the corner of your eye, an odd presence catches your attention.
But when you look,
Nothing is there.
A ghost.

Small and meek.
Quiet and reserved.
Invisible.

I am one of a million.
I am just another featureless face.
I am not you.

You can look into my unguarded eyes and see me, then turn your head and pass on like you were looking into empty air…
Because to you,
Thats what i am.
I’m not the money in your pocket.
I’m not the pretty blonde whose attention you want to snag.
I’m not the big promotion you forgot your family for.

I’m just me.
Just Rachel.
Joey.
Angela.
Holly.
Cal.
Mike.
Dave.

I’m just your neighbor.
I’m just your taxis driver.
I’m just your brother.
Mother.
Sister.
Father.

I’m just not you.

I am the invisible.

Artist's Description

I was sitting in a busy mall today and i realized how oblivious humans are to one another. The utter disregard and lack of acknowledgment that we grace our fellow people astounded me. This piece is a reflection of that.
