Feeling invincible being invisible


I ask myself everyday, why do i play this game? Is it even worth winning when there is so much to lose?

Sometimes I like to watch people on the street, to be a witness of their existence and still be invisible. Like i am the smallest thing in the world, a fleeting moment, a curious glance, a question waiting to be answered or an answer searching for a question.

And then the big bad monster goes away because I am too small to be found, to insignificant to be around.
I don't know you and you don't know me. But somehow we are here together, if that is not a miracle, then what is?

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Sitting in a coffee shop looking at people outside passing by. They don't see me but I see them. They have no purpose in my life but I am witnessing their existence. Like an unexpected visit... a surprise..or magic maybe.

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
