I’m Invisible, by Joseph Barone

 

I’m Invisible, I’m Invisible! The girl I like doesn’t see me.

I’m invisible!  What a thunderous woe it is to be me!

When I see her I melt

Like ice cream in summer.

If I told her how I felt

It might turn into a bummer.

I hope she likes me too!

Or learns my name at least.

Or notices my smile too,

Or says hello at least.

 

When I see her I always get nervous

The butterflies in my stomach all a-circus

Juggling and clowning and running and clowning!

She makes me smile, she gives me pain,

The ache of love is such a strain.

It tugs my heart ‘til it’s a noose,

And every bit of strength has broken loose.

 

I love her laugh and her beaming smile

I wish she would talk to me a while

We can chat about her favorite things…

Like…peaches…dolls and…rings…?

I could look into her eyes,

Her beautiful green…blue…brown eyes?

 

Maybe I don’t know her as much as I think…

Maybe I don’t- doesn’t that stink?

I know she’s never a mess,

I love her striped…polka dot dress?

 

What is it about her that I love?

Her eyes, her smile, all of the above?

Through some hard thinking, I think I see

That maybe she’s the one invisible to me.

 

Love can be selfish, love can be kind

But maybe it’s a road I have to find!

I think each and every one of you would agree,

I have to see her before she can see me.
