Intuitive


It’s hard, sometimes
being
invisible
unnoticed and unaware
being
invincible
but so afraid
being
immovable
waiting for nothing
being
ignored
caring too much
being
involved
for wrong reasons
being important
to no one
being
interested
there’s  no time
being
incredible
without any credit
being
identified
without a name
being
invisible
to you is
so
hard.

Reshape

To be startled
back into the world
can be unexpected
especially when you want
to go unobserved
ignoring all the world
can be uncomplicated
ending where you want
to go unnoticed
especially when you dwell
can’t go unprocessed
ignoring every single world
to be startled
back into your life
