I Disappear

I devoted so
Many years to erase my
Existence from your

Perception, and I
Assiduously practiced my art.
You could look right at

Me, and not see me.
I reveled in my newfound
Power, stealing looks in

Women’s locker rooms
And creeping into rivals
Bedrooms. But at last

It all became a
Chore, invisibility
A curse like any

Other. When I did try
To reveal myself, I was
Met with indifference.

Now I sit in plain
View, failing to garner a
Glance. I am a wraith.
