no

no

this is it

I sent every signal

I sent every sign

I said the words

But you didn’t hear

no

Now I can’t

Reach out and try

This absolution

Of deletion

Has cemented the false love

I now see what this is

It’s fake

A fallacy

Just a lie you told me

And I believed you

And you believed yourself

no

Now all the destruction

Is all I can see

The quiet after the storm

The dust settling

And no

nothing that we built

remains

no

MY ANSWER TO SUCH COMPROMISE = [ NO ] !
