Unheeded, Unseen

An absence of color

or of focus?


Overlooked, passed by,

passed over.


She sits third row, fifth seat,

marked absent on the days

she’s there; never called on.


Boys in the hall bump into her,

not as a joke.  They are looking

elsewhere, unaware she’s there.


She’s there.


She’s there.


She’s gone.



(from the single-word prompt: “invisible”)

    • In a case like this, yes. I was really striving for the essence of invisible. There are many cases and types of invisibility. Hard to nail it down. Glad you enjoyed the poem!
