Some days, I just like to be silently invisible
and lurk, prowl and creep in the shadows of my soul,
       in a foggy, misty, haze of beauty,
             hushed, withdrawn and hidden,
      submerged in my innermost thoughts.
I want to hide away behind a veil of concealment 
where my voice is mute but my imagination is wild,
             writing poems in my head,
      using invisible ink, where I am . . . 
a leaf, floating on an emerald deep ocean,
an infinitesimal speck, just a fragment detached.
       Oh, how glorious, how painful,
            to dwell behind a wall
       of my own secret construction. 
This whisper of a girl camouflaged and invisible
and hidden in the dark curved corridors of my mind,
             writing poems in my head,
       using invisible ink.

This reminds me of a scene, from The Once and Future King, in which, Merlin has turned Arthur into a fish. I can almost feel your ubiquitous hiddenness, One With All Things.
