poem – untitled

an evil in me
   awaken by a sudden touch
   unexpected and uninvited
   something has shaken
an evil in me
   with a rage unable to resist
   unpredictable and inescapable
   something has flamed
an evil in me
   with a pain so hard to heal
   underestimated and overlooked
   words, gesture, silence
   absolutely nothing can tame
an evil in me

poem – written on 1/jan/09

”幸せにする自信がない”
そう言って
去って行った人
何度も、長い間、
どこがいけなかったのかと
自分を責めた
……………..

ある日、ある時、
”幸せにしたいんだ”
そんな人に
出会った

2009年1月1日

(translation)

he left saying
”not sure if i can make you happy”

many times, for a long time,
i blamed myself
wondering what i had done wrong

……………..

one day, one time,
met a man
who said

“i want to make you happy”

poem – reconciliation

stunned
with your unexpected words
flown from your heart
not sure why
you told me so

captured
with your sincere gaze
flown out of your heart
not sure why
you did it so

time
gave us a perspective
that now
we can be friends

embrace
we go separate ways
feeling the warmth
flown into our hearts

poem – different perspectives

don’t live in a constant fear
but embrace the moment
said he

don’t let the past hold you back
but grasp what you have now
said he

don’t get trapped with the future that has not taken place
but live your life at present
said he

waste no time
life is too short
cherish it

our life, our soul, our love
no fear would do you good

live it
said he
