Say, love me or leave me and let me be lonely.
You won't believe me but I love you only.
I'd rather be lonely than happy with somebody else.
It sounds to me like you've been practicing some fasting and meditation, which is good for the soul. I love bearded irises, but they don't do well in this part of the USA. Blessings!
The irises are lovely. Ours are nowhere near being out yet.
What a clever take on the prompt.. thanks xx
