No. It’s two simple letters that have more meaning than any word ever could
But you didn’t understand it’s meaning, even though you should
I tried my hardest to make you understand me
Wishing you would

I guess you didn’t hear me clearly
Maybe I should scream it louder, maybe lose my voice to make you hear me
Do I have to get violent? I will if I need to
Just to make sure you understand me

I don’t mean to hurt you
But when all you do
Is attempt to tear me down
What else am I supposed to do?

I will not drown
Myself in the tears of the one who was pushed around
By your lack of understanding of the words that I spoke
You will not drag me down

I will not choke
On my words. You will hear my words. See the smoke
Flow from my mouth as I spit fire at your hate
You will understand that this wasn’t just a joke

It’s too late
To tell me you didn’t hear me. Too late
To say I never said it. I know that you know
What the word means. But I guess for you, it is too late

I will make sure you know
How much you have hurt me, you will know what every devastating blow
You took to my trust, my love, and my pride did to me, all because you couldn’t understand the meaning of the word
