Tulip

 

Tulip please talk to me, I am forever alone

Tulip please be with me, I am forever alone

 

‘Everyone’ has left me without a simple goodbye

The one that mattered the most, left me here to die

 

Tulip you know of loneliness, of being amazed

Tulip you’ve lost a lot, many a time been crazed

 

She was everyone to me, as the sun is to the world

Darkness surrounds me now and leaves me appalled

 

From that day forward, I know not of joy

Have I been played with like a cheesy toy?!

 

Tulip, the morning dew that leaves you at dawn!

Tulip, I know! How it feels to be stepped on…

 

You’ve touched the feeling of reduction and separation

You have been the subject of withering and decimation

 

That’s how I feel, withered, faded and decimated

Stripped of my manhood, denied and separated  

 

Tulip say my name, let me feel the sound of your voice

Tulip embrace me now, for I am left without a choice

 

Should I run, should I die, or… should I bear?!

Had I known when she left she’d return ne’er!
