I'm the girl who is lost in space,
the girl who is disappearing always,
fading away and receding farther and farther into the background. Someday I will
but the artificial warmth of my smile,
the kind you see on miserably sad people and villains in Disney movies,
will remain behind as an ironic remnant.
I am the girl you see in the photograph from some party someplace or church,
the one who is in fact soon to be gone.
When you look at the picture again,
I want to assure you,
I will no longer be there.
I will be erased from history,
like a traitor,
because with every day that goes by,
I feel myself becoming more and more invisible.
