One more color

I’d wanted to add just one more color,
  but then, they took my painting away

Who hears me now, that I can’t scream? When
  even my prayers are monitored for content?

I talk a lot with the air conditioners, here.
  Do you? They help my paintings dry.

I needed to add that one more color

I need you to know how beautiful she is
