Treasure Island

Ally Cooper

(30th March 1973 / Colchester, Essex, United Kingdom)

Invisible


I stopped dancing when the music faltered
The lights came up and I was frozen
Rooted to this spot again
And yet invisible
To the audience of my pain
The silence gripped me as I stood paralysed
Listening to no breath or words
I remain invisible
Unseen and now unheard
Then suddenly I hear an awful laughter
A sniggering as of children giggling
I know they see me and my pain
They are invisible
But I hear their ridicule
They laugh to see my pain
So I stopped dancing when the lights came up
And nothing will make me dance again
A fool that dances to no music
Remains invisible
Jumping through hoops to entertain the troops
