I Am That Person That

i am that person that.............
people cut in front of then ask oh were u in line?
cut off on the road because my car has no right to b in their way
moves out of the way on the sidewalk because the other person doesnt budge
gets cut off and walked in front of at the grocery store
no one says hello to
no one calls to see how im doing
the last one called even for an appt because my time isnt precious
i am that person that walks thru life invinsible not by choice but because people do not see me as a person, to them i have no life, no feelings?
I am that person that they never glanced at the first time let alone a second look
I am that person that........

Do you see me?

So there's at least two of us. I'm the person who walks into an empty shop and doesn't get served, then has to wait until the three people who walked in after me have been served.
When I'm in a club and people are organising an outing, I'm the person who just can't be fitted into the car - if I'm one of four wanting to go, the car can only fit three. If I'm one of six, the (same) car can only fit five.
I read a novel recently about women of a certain age who all became invisible as a result of taking a particular combination of depression and menopause medication. It rang a bell, but this has been my issue since I was a child.
Sigh.

"I am an invisible man. No, I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allan Poe; nor am I one of your Hollywood-movie ectoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids — and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me." ~ Ralph Ellison

I see you
