The smallest twist of the knife, Destiny

I don't believe in fate or destiny
I believe in doing what is
In your heart, what is right
And I knew I loved you
I did, it burned inside me relentlessly
You didn't
And needed to be convinced
I had to pursue
You needed to acquiesce
How could you know that it hurt
Like the rejection of every other in my life
The number?
Maybe you knew best
Your initial rejection
Your reaction on target
But for me
A tragedy, comedy
With that, the smallest twist of the knife
Let me die God, just kill me
I begged God to redeem me
Of all my sorrows
But I still grieve
I love but with every moment
I fear the new rejection
Despite trusting you
I expect it to end
And me to be
