Superhero

Last year I read a poem that ended with something along the lines of:
“But no one seems to notice
When a superhero sheds a tear.”
I can’t find that poem for the life of me now so if you have it I desperately want it for my collection.

This poem is inspired by that one.

Enjoy!


INVISIBLE-GIRL
 
She walks the streets in sunlight
And no one really knows
The side of her that’s secret
The one she never shows.
 
She’s the invisible girl
And she’s always there to help
Purse snatcher, bank robbers
She’s not good for their health
 
She’ll save your falling child
Or thwart a robbers plan
She’ll save the day and vanish
As fast as she possibly can
 
But when it’s time for sunrise
She’ll be normal once again
A normal lonely girl
Waiting for the day to end
 
She lives in her apartment
Run down and full of mice
Living off of nothing
But water and some rice
 
She’s the invisible girl
Living in pain and fear
Because nobody will notice
When a superhero sheds a tear.

      I really wish I could find the poem that inspired it. I think it was written by ExtremeNostalgia, but they deleted their blog a while ago so I can’t find it anywhere.
