I Let You Go

I let you go I have no remorse
 Your selfish actions I will not endorse
 How many women have had a love demise
 You're lying in bed but no compromise
Your soul is sick your heart is burnt out
 No blood in your veins but a septic gout
 You bled us dry depleted our finances
 Gorge on our labor to the devil pay penances
You conceited arrogant malfunctioning male
 Lies dropping from your lips like winters hail
 Bedding the innocent and unsuspecting fawn
 Your condition spread out on the world's front lawn
You said this is healing and a new beginning
 But they were just words empty of feeling
 You ask what it is I need you to do
 Nothing since I can't trust you to be ever true
