I said no

I said no but you still started to talk
I said no but you wouldn’t stop
I said no but you started to stalk
I said no but you wouldn’t let it drop

All the subtle warnings you didn’t understand
All the obvious signs you missed
All the advice slipped like grains of sand
All the hints dismissed with a flick of your wrist

When are you listening to what I have to say
When are you finding the things I want to do
When are you acting to what I want today
When are you hearing the words that are true

You think yourself so clever
So quick to understand
You think you’re right forever
Bright and skilled and competent

But although I will not act direct
I assure you there will
An answer you likely don’t expect
A promise I shall fulfill

To be true to me and mine
In spite of all that I might lose
I know that I will be fine
And there will be no more excuse

For listening to words I don’t want to hear
For not finding the things I really care about
For all the smiles I paid so dear
For all the love I can live without

So my dearest pretender I say goodbye
You’re not welcome on my life’s path
I know I gave it a last try
I will be strong in my wrath
