Fait accompli

Fait accompli 
No road ahead
Nowhere to go now that the last words have been said
No hope in hell
That’s the sum of it all
You hand me your keys with unconcerned ease
And God I feel small

Books and the like
There’ll be a van
It’s not important you will send it when you can
I still can’t believe
You could do this to me
The steel in your voice no room there for choice
Just ait  accompli 

My whole world in ruins
Shattered and cursed
How can I rise from the rubble
The bubble I lived in has burst
The air rushing through
A message from you
Clear as can be
It’s ait  accompli 

Should I have seen
Should I have heard
Maybe a nuance or curious choice of word
There were no signs
At least none I could see
No warning from you then out of the blue
A ait  accompli 

One heartbeat from panic
Aching so bad
Echoes of heels down the stairs dying out and I think I’ll go mad
One minute we’re on
Next minute you’re gone
There’s no more we
Fait accompli 

My whole world in ruins
(my whole world is torn apart),
Shattered and cursed
(my world is torn and shattered)
Now I must rise from the rubble
The bubble that I lived in has burst
The air rushing through
(the air that is rushing through)
A message from you
(it’s coming I promise you)
Out of the blue
(it’s as clear as can be)
And it’s clear as can be
There’s no more we
It’s fait accompli 
Fait accompli 
Fait accompli
