no one’s keeping track

how many times
did she cry in pain
only to be ignored
how many times
did she long to explain
the places she’s explored
the invisible woman
wanders alone
her ankles have swollen
her sorrows have grown
how many times
have people passed
not once looking back
you can call it countless,
no one’s keeping track
