Do Not Send

I ask you, if you are unattached, to think if me again
For I am a man whose life is better than it was before

I would change my mind about Valentine’s Day and be lavish
I would comfort you and be comforted in my turn

Know that in time I could fall hopelessly for you
Staring back at your searching eyes
Touching your jolly mouth
Wondering at your long hair and tiny black nails of night
If you scratched me, I hope it would be with well-meaning excitement

And do not think I have forgotten your dark sense of humor
Your quick mind
Your understanding heart
Though you let me down easy and sometimes I think physical pain would be better

No answer can hurt me, Golden Lady
So I enquire because I dare, and dare, and dare

There is no lasting peace for me
without someone of a specific kind
And I have found no other like you…

Artist's Description

A poetic message I was thinking of emailing. I thought better of it.
Would you send it?
