Invisible Man - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

Your negligent eyes
Seeping of joie de vivre
Always gazing at the next horizon
Waiting to grab hold of destiny
With both hands
Do not distinguish my paltry shadow
Falling across your fleeting soul
Nor my silent footsteps
On the pristine sands of time
Nor my feeble aura
As I inhale your heavenly fragrance
As I, an invisible man
Infected with your magnetic strain
Harbors lofty dreams of, one day,
Blending with your magical horizon
Only if your nonchalant eyes
Gaze at me, even for a passing second
To incarnate my soul
To the bronze of a deity
To sculpt the frame of a demi-god
From the vacuity of pneuma
To chisel from flesh a titan
Whose shadow is falling across
Your next horizon
