Done With Reading

The book lies open 
To the last page I read from 
It told a bitter story
The story of my life
As something I could relate to
As I took in the pictures
It was my memory that I saw.

The story was not a problem
I did not play the hero,
As far as the plot went,
It didn't really have one, 
This is the story of my life,
So why can I not find the final chapter
Or have a happy ending?

If one were to write a book,
Based on what I've seen,
No-one would believe it, 
The plot would not be clear
I don't know where I'm going
I haven't lived a best seller,
And the fans have closed the book
