Why can I not summon you

When I need you most

The powerless ones leave me

The pawns of smiles

Worthless, meaningless

And yet in a red cell do you lay

There at the bars, where locked you stay

I give you permission to leave and be free

To rid me of this chronic disease

So you mock me and dance, singing loud in my ears

But to those I must give you

Can only see not hear.

Its about needing to say something important, and not being able to.
