i don’t forgive you. i won’t forgive you, but i will try. well, that’s a lie. i don’t want you to skim around my feelings and cheat me. it’s not fair. it’s not right.
you claimed your love. you wrote it with a kiss and your tears. how can you not give us a try? the chance is not lost. your love is not lost.
i can’t forgive you for igniting the hope. for telling me that it’s in my soul. the capture. the intrigue. your love. the dare to spew such music and take the grant away.
i don’t forgive you. i can’t. i won’t.
