Choose any superpower which would you pick?

Hand shot up without a moment s thought

Loudly answered, “invisibility”

Just like that my wish came true

The following year released on my own

High school bells no longer clamored

Quote on quote entered the real world

Did not realize how invisible one can become

Simply by wearing a mask not even covering the eyes

The missing part of the face the brain could not compute

After a while internally start to feel as if disappearing

From the reactions of others becoming invisible

With the pandemic imprisoned

Inside as desolate as a tumbleweed’s itinerary

There lies a dark underbelly of Invisibility

After the light hearted chuckle of being unseen

There is an under current of duality between silence and loneliness and noise and joy

There lurks a safety net of contentment from not being seen

But like housemaids there are secrets best left untold

What others want to hide and not be raised to the light it’s best to keep hidden to protect the peace

Being invisible ultimately means being estranged from the ones you love and disconnected from the rest of the world

The below is a computer-generated response from Neo, Neopoet's computer artificial intelligence:

The poem "Invisible" explores the concept of invisibility as a superpower and its implications in the context of the pandemic. The poem effectively conveys the speaker's experience of feeling invisible both physically and emotionally.

One suggestion for improvement is to consider the structure of the poem. Currently, the poem is written in free verse with varying line lengths. While this can create a sense of spontaneity, it may also benefit from a more deliberate structure. Consider experimenting with stanza breaks or consistent line lengths to enhance the flow and rhythm of the poem.

Additionally, the poem could benefit from further development of imagery and sensory details. For example, you mention wearing a mask, but there is an opportunity to explore the physical and emotional experience of wearing a mask in more depth. How does it feel on the skin? How does it affect the speaker's breathing or perception of the world? By incorporating more vivid and specific imagery, you can engage the reader's senses and create a more immersive experience.
