Invisible Me



Invisible Me


What happens to you happens to me.

We all feel despair, and does it not

always feel like everything repeats?

Without a doubt, it is often our fault.


I know I do things to myself that puts

me in shambles, like if an invisible

me takes over me, and makes me do

things against my better nature.


I borrowed the book of loneliness

and never took it back. I read it often

and it has taken over me. My invisible

me is complicit. Soon it will be my only


friend. It will guide me into the fog.

It will whisper in my ear, “What happens

to you happens to me. We are both in

despair. You are invisible too.”
