It was barely in sight As the ocean swallowed Churned in defiant I was not responsible for its sorrow But it drenched me in salt and sand It was barely in sight But it took me, took the last litheness of my hair It frightened me, kept me up one night Revoked my license to wither Took my hand and flied How it was not in sight The little dot, barely off the offing Trapped me with the...
有时想念自己短发的日子，没有什么快乐和惊喜，只有丢掉一切重新开始的决心。现在想来，因为这些，我做了太多的梦，最后心脏里还有知觉的那一部分只感觉得到凛冽的无望。可是微苦和疲惫的味道尝得多了，竟然也有了令人心满意足的意味。 不断想离开，重新开始，觉得自己什么也没有的习惯就是那时候养成的吧。不再想要诉说，放弃了为自己卑微的过去沉迷的权利也是那时候的事吧。到了今天，已经没有人知道我故事的全部。到底是心甘情愿的沉默，我自然有过自己说不清道不明的道理。其实这样也好。 头发依然在悉悉索索的长长，由不得我分辨。总有一天，我也会心安地接受这些事实吧。
A Simple Answer
sometimes you search and search and nothing happens - nothing in the world seems to take the slightest interest in you. Sometimes you think you are only worth of trouble, and choke, choke on the worst possibilities, despair, and weep on your failures. Sometimes you would like to give up, and live on the blind happiness - be humble, feed on indifference, face the sun, and grow stubbornly, wildly on...

深深的話要淺淺地說 長長的路要揮霍的走 大大的世界要率真地感受 會痛的傷口 要輕輕的揉 被抱緊的時候 去勇敢的祝福 不被瞭解的時候 相信自己 值得 永遠心疼做過的夢 在乎的人要傻傻地愛 經歷的事 就慢慢地來 想法很多的時候 要細膩地用 擁有一切以後 就讓他走 在某個角落放一首歌 別忘了 要溫柔 別忘了 要快樂

Half Pain Half Joy
I will remember this day. The beginning is defined to be indefinite, but I only want this all to end. Is it years of nostalgia that will follow?
一箱子从伊萨卡搬来的书在房里放了半个月，终于想起来要读。翻开来却莽然是高中错过的那些文章。太久没有想过和中文有关的事了，卒读起来却又想起几年之前以为自己不写些什么就会失血而亡的日子。我终于什么都写不出了，也不知是福是祸。 又读到“沧海月明珠有泪，蓝田日暖玉生烟。此情可待成追忆，只是当时已惘然。”看着页脚的注解，顿然觉得悲切。这几句诗我四年以来翻来覆去的念过无数遍，今天却觉得格外冷。日子久了，一点一点变老之间，我竟然开始渐渐懂得最后两句的意思。 想起以前的人和事，日子久了，竟然连“梦寒”的感慨也没有了，只剩下说不清道不明的悲哀。也罢，既然釜已破，舟已沉，干脆潇洒些，摆摆手一去不回吧。
the Dream of Longer Hair
I dreamed I had longer hair. It grew, and covered half the length of my back. How strange it was, these empty memories attaching to me in a whim. The cycle starts and ends, over and over. Too many days have gone by without notice.
It was so sudden, I thought I was floating in the air. One world receding while another approaching — it was so inexplicably surprising, and, joyous, and, painful. There is no stranger place to be stranded in. So these are the moments I will remember. Some days later I will rise slightly above the ground. I will smell the dried stars and drained wells. Was it supposed to be beautiful? Was...
I must have been in wondrous anguish when I typed “don’t look back when you are leaving town” here. I didn’t know when I did, that often a time the declaration of a war called for peace, and I thought it was time to fare all well, to end this dumb colloquy once and for all. But then nothing really vanished. Days passed in whimsy. I was standing there, like a callow...
