Untold Stories

No grand epic
will flow from my veins
No tale of love and loss
will I etch in blood
No account of grand passion
indelibly stamped on the heart
No chronicle of steamy ardour
to ignite the senses
No narrative to hold you enthralled
with its sweeping saga
No rapturous fantasy
that will move you to tears

Why put pen to paper 
for an uninspired recital
of an unremarkable life
lived in obscurity

Some stories
are better left untold
