"

My notebook has remained blank for months
thanks to the light you shower
around me. I have no use
for my pen, which lies
languorously without grief.

Nothing is better than to live
a storyless life that needs
no writing for meaning—
when I am gone, let others say
they lost a happy man,
though no one can tell how happy I was.

"
Ha Jin, “Missed Time,”  Poetry (July 2000). (via literarymiscellany)
"

I opened my mouth, almost said something. Almost. The rest of my life might have turned out differently if I had. But I didn’t.
