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!
