shadow-walker

you don’t see me,
don’t know i’m
here.

some days
even i forget that
i’m here.
(i spend too long in the
shadow
and even in light
i am invisible)

when i reveal myself
i can do so
only for a night.
energy’s accumulation
is at its
strongest.

(do you see me,
amidst the night?
my invisibility must be
faltering)

am i real then,
if you can hear
me?
-rush of warmth,
coughing – choking –
pulling oxygen back into
my lungs.

(this is unusual –
must be your presence)

too soon the sun is up.
you, bleary-eyed, bat away
the alarm clock.
invisible again
i slink into the closest shadow

and disappear.
