It Isn't, It Never Was, and It Never Will Be

It isn't
It never was
And it never will be...

I saw a rose that doesn't exist
Waited forever, for its one kiss
My reality is a mere delusion
I can now see so clearly
It's time to asphyxiate confusion
Want to kill all visions I held dearly

Except that they can't be killed
No one can ever be that skilled
How can you kill something that doesn't exist?
Question is, do I keep dreaming, or open my fist?

Either way...

It isn't
It never was
And it never will be...
