No Amount of Imagination Can Replace Experience

I'm sick of writing poems

about a love I've never known.

My imagination is only taking me so far;

I want to get out and live my life,

do something

go somewhere.

I want intensity.

I want something new.

I want to feel something more than longing,

more than envy.

Give me some face-to-face


I want a life I can look back on

and know it was lived.
