Becoming Visible

As a child I learned the art
to be invisible
Like a ghost I wandered around
so others could do me no harm
they could not blame me
and I would not bother anyone

But even though I hid
for the world and for myself,
you saw me
Like no one had ever seen me before
I came alive by your gaze
as your eyes made me visible
