It is for a poem that is about loneliness and how nobody really sees you or notices you, somewhat like if you are an invisible "thing" and I don't know what I can use to describe it.

    This question is a bit unspecific so I find it hard to answer, other than copy-pasting lists of synonyms. Have you checked synonyms for “alone” and “unnoticed”? If you did and nothing was appropriate, could you be more specific about what you’re looking for? – Henrik N Mar 20 at 8:08

    'invisibility' is a good start. Work on that, using your own word associations. That is what poets do. They don't text a friend. – Tuffy Mar 20 at 9:08

Sounds like *blending in with the furniture.”

Another one is “a fly on the wall” when referring to an unnoticed silent observer.

  • To me, these sound like idioms describing hiding and clandestine activities- of not wanting to be noticed. whereas I get the idea from the OP that this should describe some who is desperate to be noticed, but isn’t. – Jim Mar 20 at 18:38
  • @Jim. My observation is that they are mostly used informally (and humorously) to describe one’s experience of being ignored or left out of the discussion. You can intone bitterness too, all in the context. – user416741 Mar 20 at 22:07
