Sun Through My DarkStep inside.
Nothing. Walk away.
Alone. No one but the girl in the mirror.
Dinner's made, eaten alone in her room.
Lucky if her mom's home to say goodnight.
Morning. Dark. Cold.
Alone. Make a lunch for sister and I.
Make breakfast for sister and I.
Lights on, sister appears.
She takes her lunch, stows it away.
No look at me, nothing to say.
Father appears. Silent.
Sad, alone, cold.
No "good morning" no "thank you for breakfast."
As we leave mom appears.
No "good morning."
Father and sister already out the door.
I whisper goodbye.
She doesn't hear me. I cannot see her. Silence.
Outside. Dark. Cold.
The car ride is silent.
I sit in the back in unnoticed.
Am I invisible?
No, only in shadowed dark. Alone.
We arrive. Sister steps out.
I turn to leave.
"Have a good day sweetie."
Like sun coming through the clouds,
My smile breaks free. "You too."
I want to cry.
