I Try to Send!!!

All day I lie in bed
With my hands on the pen
Shedding smiles for the longer wait
The ripen stage has kept

I shade unwritten words
In the picture of your face
For thou has kept my rosy flower
Unwithered in the vane
You made my sleep creeps
In the beauty of the night
As it break the eyes of the day

Kissing with my breath
To deliver my button
Tacked to the page of
My very thoughts

The doorlock refused me not
Its teeth chop off my fingers
As I try to send the bleeding note
For it tasted my sweet wine

Lo! My beautiful lady
I try to send my face
But the dead door refused me entry
Into the grave

    This is a beautiful piece — I have not written poetry in a couple of years and am just now starting to get back into the swing of things. I shall now browse through the rest of your work; again, this one is fantastic.
