(in)visible [poem]

I was invisible for a year
purposefully folding myself into the background
as I walked through my life
with careful steps
edging around my own sharp edges and broken glass
I stopped talking
my opinions muted
like the sound of car engines outside at night
I didn’t want to be heard
to be noticed
I needed to be forgotten for a while
to fix all this mess
into something workable again
I finally repaired my damaged parts
bleached my hair and dyed it peach
I stand out loud now
so bright and
brilliant and
visible
