Now I’m the invisible man (a poem)

For today’s poem, I used a prompt posted on Tumblr by @promptsgalore’:

Write something that takes place at a park at night and includes the following:
• unrequited love
• spilled coffee
• the color yellow
• a lyric from your favorite song
• dancing

She left me alone in the park
her bright yellow skirt
dancing side to side
as she quickly ran off
hands held to her face

Frozen in place
I suddenly felt like a ghost
the cup of coffee I was holding
fell to the ground
its contents splashing everywhere

I felt nothing
