There is invisibility among humans.
A line, if you will, that often keeps
Others at bay, sometimes hiding
A part of ourselves we find too painful.
Almost thief-like, it lurks, sneaking into
parts of our lives and stealing away
Our possessions of spirit.
There are many commonalities,
Yet each one specific to the individual.
We have divisions, labels, and a need
Underlying them all to do away with
Such constraints. We are drawn
To what we've been taught taboo,

We fall prey to false images
In the hope of reaching and being

Warmed by a fire we sometimes cannot
Kindle within ourselves.
How often have we tried to disprove
A feeling, a belief, a mere thought
In order to keep things invisible?
A stranger often has the ability to
See the invisible, often people
We know are shown glimpses,
But the door is slammed shut,
Encompassing those things
In darkness, veils, and lies.
The truth is, if we all had x-ray
Vision and were able to see
The invisible, we might be forced
To admit we are all similar,

Frail beings,  a wonderment.
As such, we might love ourselves
Along with all humans.
Can you imagine?

You are the fucking Wife of Bath. We're all deceived. She's loaded. That tavern act is a ruse for a study of mankind. If there were any more these, I'd freak. Great development.

Great work Jody. I like a poem that makes me think deep thoughts, and this did just that. Some great lines to linger over, and some interesting concepts to consider - what more can one ask? Perhaps a Featured Poem Award - oh, I see you have one! Congratulations, Jody.

Yeah... that part I REALLY liked... I felt that way when I split with my first love.  Like why can't I create my own happiness, tenderness, etc. I guess I'm still working on it. I'm too macho toward myself. This has many uses to different readers, and a slam-dunk closer. You should be roud of yourself.

truly marvelous Jody, then again I'm not surprised. "Frail beings and a wonderment" if only we could see past it all and learn to love on another. Many *****'s

Jesus Christ this is incredible...
Comment By: PremiumJoe McNinney on August 1, 2006 11:36:27 PM Report
These secrets are our very own,
some rather walk with them alone.
Others wear them out on their sleeve,
hoping for some guidance and reprieve.
Ideas divided between right and wrong,
believe in your convictions, however strong!

I love this Jody, congrats on the award, I don't know how I missed this, Joe

Perhaps the invisible ISN'T so invisible after all. Kudos to you give us all something to think about. =))

Comment By: FreeTracy Fletcher on July 18, 2006 08:46:47 PM Report
We all have things that we would like to keep invisible from the world.

Great write it is so deserving of the Featured poem Award.

I don't know how I could have missed this one...
It is perfect in its simple yet far-sighted wisdom. An inspiration for us all.

This powerfully written work just stuns me Jolen...amazing and so insightful. It makes me feel so naked and vulnerable reading it...You have seen the soul. Excellent.

We are frail beings indeed. But we do have a strength to rest upon in our belief of Him, not our own but His. To believe in the invisible.
Amazing piece and thought provoking.

Wonderful Job!


Comment By: FreeChuck on June 16, 2006 07:03:03 PM Report

If I could pull down the heavens and sprinkle the stars on everything you touch… I would do that… unfortunately for me I am lacking the most important and illusory thing in this reality… TIME… you are wonderful…and you already know that…

What more evidence do you need that this writer is a powerhouse?

Comment By: FreeH. Louise on June 12, 2006 05:00:11 PM Report
A very good write. Amazing.
Like Jeremy has already said, this is thought provoking.

You've written this strong piece of writing, wonderfully.
Keep up the good work!

Take care

Comment By: FreeAdri on June 12, 2006 02:57:16 AM Report

Very wise words.  I love the way you take hard hitting truths, that we all know is there, and cover the spectrum of it. Wonderful, like only you can do it!

An amazing, thought-provoking write Jody

So much truth spoken is absolutely amazing.

How my being resonated with this.

I often feel  born before my time......not in a big headed way ........more in the way we treat mental illness.

William Blake was a who was attended to with such visions.


great writing

Why is it that we're all afraid to reveal ourselves completely. We all keep part of us a secret. Is this human nature? Lots to think about from one of my favorite writers. You amaze me when you go from the totally obsurd and have me in stitches, to something as deep as this. jp

View in itself is an infinite term.

Only prejudice is opaque


Comment By: PremiumPamela A. Lamppa on June 10, 2006 07:34:08 AM Report
Integral we are.


A wonderful, introspective and telling piece.  Brave as it can be and yes....I can imagine, do imagine, and wonder...when?


For our children then, perhaps? *sigh*.  Excellent my friend.  I felt this with my soul. ~Pam

Comment By: FreeTim Fleckney on June 9, 2006 10:28:40 PM Report
Perhaps it's best that things remain invisible, there are parts buried deep inside of us that are meant to be buried and if we took them out into the light of day wewould see ourselves for the monsters we are. I myself choose to keep the beast hidden lest I send women and children screaming in the street. An excellent write with a lot of deep thought, I really enjoyed this one.


Comment By: FreeRoger Bacon on June 9, 2006 08:48:08 PM Report
Be gentle with people,

they have been through

the same as you and I. 


For some reason I read your write and felt compelled to write that.

Comment By: PremiumMoon Fairy on June 9, 2006 08:27:00 PM Report

You've pointed out some amazing things within this write.
Awesome and true, every bit..
An award winner for sure and I love this new catagory!

"How often have we tried to disprove

I really like that line, Aces. I like the new catagory..Might be using that one, myself...If we all could truly see the inner self of others and they, ours, I wonder if that would bring humanity closer together or make us want to flee in horror from each other?..I think we keep to ourself not just thingss too painful to share, but things we consider personal and private. Very thoughtful and successful write, darlin'. The varied comments are testament to that..Good stuff!!..Yereverthoughtfulfurball

Comment By: FreeLady Dragonwyck on June 9, 2006 07:07:22 PM Report
Be like everyone else.....


Well, I guess that's not one of those things I have/could/would do...........


GREAT write...

How true that sometimes a total stranger sees in us what we ourselves cannot see, or even those with whom we spend a vast majority of time. Do we ever really unveil ourselves to another or even ourselves? Takes courage..this was excellent, as always, and has me thinking..

so very true Jody great penning

hugs kisses


Comment By: PremiumGlata on June 9, 2006 04:57:21 PM Report
How frightening that would be! To love ourselves and one another??? No way!

Honestly, though...this is great...and I agree totally!

Hugs and love you1


Comment By: FreeHenry M. on June 9, 2006 03:19:23 PM Report
This is very, very good Jody... We never know what lies in the minds of others or around the next corner for that matter. If I am reading this right, this is more about the person next to us. You just don't know who to trust anymore, it appears that not only lives were lost on that fateful 9/11/01, we have also lost something almost as dear, we have lost true freedom. Sad, so very sad. Excellent writing Jody.    Henry
