I've never fallen asleep
In the arms of a lover.
I've never known the joy
Of getting drunk with friends.
I've never had the problems
Of having someone who once loved me
Suddenly fall out of love with me.
I've never woken up one morning
To realize I had completely forgotten
The previous night.
My life has been good to me.
Some would call it dull.
True, not much of note has happened in it.
My life would not make a good novel.
But it could inspire some good poetry.
As long as I have my imagination
I can live extreme sorrows and happiness vicariously through my characters
And save the simple joys for myself.
