Alright Alright Alright - Poem by Joshua Tracy

You make me feel like a hostage
And I'm allowed 1 phone call
And I sit waiting
Waiting for that call
And you say
'I'm going to rescue you one day'
And you smile
And I smile
But my smile is pushing you away now
And so is my frown
Rescue doesn't seem so close now
And as I wait for the calls
They never seem to come
It's weird that being hostage
Used to feel good
For a little while
Please call

    I like the implication here....we too often feel at someone elses mercy when we want something so badly...nice work (Report) Reply
