Time was, when I cried

I did so without fear of discovery

when I was anxious and afraid

I weathered the tempest alone

No one saw me

because I was invisible

Momentary notice occurred

if something was wanted

then back to insubstantiality I went

Walking through a sea

of other people’s lives

reaching out to offer something, grasp something

but I am the colour of the waves

and my tears wash away in the flood


I don’t know what to make of your attention

I don’t know what to say when you won’t leave

Maybe you really care

or maybe you think me crazy

I don’t know how to act

now I’m visible
