A Chinese Riddle

the long legged musicians
are
playing flute and guitar repertoire
while
parading into the honeymoon suite

高脚小儿郎
吹箫入洞房

Divergent – Chinese Riddles

Our intimacy has no distance
Our distance increases intimacy
The intimate element is the distance
The secret of distance is intimacy

我们的亲密没有距离
我们的距离增加亲密
亲密的元素正是距离
距离的秘密就是亲密

Sweater – College Poems

right after she farewelled campus life
she packed a shoulder bag
with his sweater tight around the strap
got on the first coach
without looking back
salty drips swallowed in an empty stomach

she woke up in another city
launched herself into hustle bustle
isn’t it how old memory fades
with new scenery created
if only autumn lasts for 6 months

sense of smell may linger a life time
it wasn’t a calculated risk to
tight that sweater
it was part of her too anxious to let go

first snowflakes falling from the neon sky
one lands on her lips
she holds up his sweater

catching the rolling tears
warming her frozen cheeks

she misses him

 

刚告别了校园生活
整理行装
打结了他的毛衣
速上了长途汽车
不堪回顾
咸咸的眼泪在空腹里浸淹

苏醒在陌生的城市
一劲投入繁忙中
过去不就让它过去
新地新风景
只愿秋天长半年

气味有时一生难忘
并非计算过有多冒险
结上毛衣
只因依依不舍

雪片在霓虹灯下飘落
停留在唇边
把他的毛衣拥起

接着下滚的热泪
暖起冰凉的颊骨

想他了

Perilous – College Poems

when you are trapped in your maze
keep a smidgen of sensitivity
fathom my fear boiling under the surface
you know my entangled rationale
unfit to guide you to the exit
and your silted decadent
is drowning my brokenness

当你心绪停滞时
是否愿意保留一束敏感
体味我欲动的狂恐
你明知道我纠缠的理智
无法为你拨开心锁
而你内心淤积的颓废
纠将淹没我的破落

Fragile – College Poems

meditate in the breezy quietness
brushing the heartstrings
the fragility of body
the scars of the mind
caution in expression

it’s never your intention
tiptoeing around me
still wigwag me into pieces

in a panic
hauling me all up
in vain
leaving a trail of
Blood stains
from frantic steps

席座风自何处
拂动心弦几许
患薄体态自何伤
慎言纳止
君本无心
久经触碰
战战兢兢
碎我一地
拾全
无望
及足
何
趾

Unsettled – College Poems

night
creep to my bedside
vaguely
in the pale moonlight
open a book page
the blindness of my heart
omitting a tittle

grab a cigarette
missing the light
fall back to bed
drifting off

the torrential rain
hurry to be awake
looking in the mirror
the drenched me
escaping from the dream
defenceless

夜
悄悄落到床边
依稀里
看到月色下的苍白
执一本书
心盲了
读不进一个逗点
抽一根烟
找不到零星火点
倒头睡去吧
梦里有雨
赶快醒来
镜子里
从雨中走出的我
无处藏身

Pondering – College Poems

why do we want to save yesterday
why are we waiting for tomorrow
does it matter today is a flaw

how come I am speechless
how come I am missing a rib

where is the wind blowing from
how is the frost bringing about

all I see is barren land
what can I do about it
what am I searching for
what have I learned
what have I lost
Which heart got hurt

昨天留来干什么
明天又等待什么
今天过得微恙又如何
怎么缺了口
怎么少了根筋
哪里来的风
哪里下的霜
满日的苍然
要来干什么
找什么
得到什么
失了什么
伤了那颗心

City Rain

Shhh!
Morning glow
Through window panes
Pitter patter pitter patter
The city bathing in rain
Polishing dust off her glowing skin
Tiresome is the watchman captured by cloudburst
Retreating from his misty hazel orbs
Sighing for a sleepless night
Dribble bubble dribble bubble
Faint neon lights
Wake up
Halt!

 

听
窗外
晨曦里
淅淅沥沥
洗涤着城市
好让尘埃松軟
如望雨人的疲憊
消退满眼朦胧
叹一宿无眠
点点滴滴
夜域里
梦外
停

The appointment

Screenshot_20190317-142151_Chrome.jpg

we ran into each other on a rainy day
the season of affection

you came like a breeze
brushing across my soul
no longer a wasteland

I held an umbrella
walking into your world
no longer perplexed

We met on a rainy day
the appointment of intimacy

20190317_140351.jpg

Wishful

dwelling in pristine squares within four walls
immaculate, spotless, and orderly
not a trace of mess, clutter or chaos

no sharp edges in my mind
lack of trail in my thinking
turmoil fails to construct meaningful sequence
dramatic contrast of within and without

my heart pacing around
blinded to egress
my soul refuses to be quietened

within walls
sitting in silence
waiting for life to vanish
with the blood floating in the fingertips
loneliness is for the conformist but the strayed heart

my heart meditating to will through the walls
inhaling life in abundance
cure for smothering and suffocation

四面围墙
生活在方正的合子里
秩秩有序
整整有条
沒有丝毫紊乱的痕迹

头脑里沒有棱角
思绪缺乏轨迹
凌乱无法溢出规则
墙外墙內的反异

心四处游走
跨不出墙外
安静不了灵魂

四墙之內
靜坐着沉默
等侍生命的流失
从暖流血液的指尖
流漓的心沒有寂寞
寂寞是方合

心在沉默的静坐里放飞
穿透微薄方正的围墙
呼吸天空里的生气
让心无法窒息
