Invisable Man

Location

 Close my eyes and there you are  
To figure you out is complicated  
We fight we argue  
I confide in you  
But when my eyes begin to open I forget you  
You become all but a memory  
Apart of me I cannot see, touch, smell,  
Only hear  
The words you speak I cannot remember  
And mine are but a slur  
All I know is that I’m arguing with a man  
I cannot see, touch, smell  
Only hear  
A shadow if I may say  
Who taunts me wherever I lay  
Makes me realize the truth I hate  
Makes me swallow my own pride  
And tells me what I hide inside  
I’m confiding in a man  
I cannot see, touch, smell  
Only hear  
In these dreams I cannot bare  
It’s the truth that sustains me  
But there’s no help in truth  
I’m left open by a man  
I cannot see, touch, smell  
Only hear  
A man that’s in my dreams  
A man who is more real than he seems  
I’ve been broken  
By a man I cannot see, touch, smell  
Only hear  
His dreadful truth is what I fear  
I’m being hunted by a man  
I cannot see, touch, smell  
Only hear  
It’s as if he knows me better than myself  
And won’t leave until I’m begging for help  
And to my confusion and pain he’s giving a toast  
I’ve been killed by a man  
I cannot see, touch, smell  
Only hear  
I don’t think he realizes 
He’s taken just about everything way from me 
I’ve been bamboozled by a man 
I cannot see touch smell 
Only hear 
Tortured without a care 
My emotions on the brink 
I can barely think 
Every morning I hover over the bathroom sink 
Weak and staring in the mirror 
Wondering if I’m truly me 
I’m sickened by a man 
I cannot see, touch, smell 
Only hear 
Everywhere I go I can feel him standing there 
Watching my every move taunting me 
Reminding me of the fear I know is true 
I’ve lost myself because of a man 
I cannot see, touch, smell 
Only hear 
A feeling I can no longer take 
I need to get away from this man 
That has taken over my sight 
My ability to feel, to detect the good from bad 
I NEED to get back to myself 
I’ve been taken over by a man 
I cannot see, touch, smell 
Only hear 
And even though he’s taken over 
My biggest fear is that I know who he is 
I fear that this man is.... 
Me
