The Invisible Woman

“I am the invisible woman
A ghost in your house
I go around the rooms without you noticing
Bringing order to your disorder
Cleanliness to your dirtiness
Care to your neglect
Love to your indifference
Company to what you abandon
Pity to your cruelty
Health to your sickness
I’m perfect and miraculous
Because you only miss me when I’m not here
You are only interested in what I say when I do not respond
In what I have done when I make a mistake”

-from ” Ode to the Invisible Woman”
