Kept away

Why do you ask strong questions
you know I cannot answer?
Does it give you a feeling
of power
when you see me break down
in helplessness?

Why do you say things
you know
I cannot contradict
without denying what
has already been said
and meant?

I have no answers
when I am perplexed
and no protests
when so much has been said
Does it please you
when my opinions are kept away?
