Suffocation for her sake

When I finally realized
That she only gave her hand
As a request for friendship

That was when I made up
my mind
And decided
Not to do anything at all

Because whatever I may do
It'll wound either of us

Victory creates happiness on both sides
Loss can inflict pain to yourself,
if not to her conscience too

As I really cared,
I lost by my own hand
In order to save her conscience

That decision
equals suffocation
