Na Ye

Life

I’ve cherished it
as a brown candy from my childhood.
I licked it and immediately wrapped it up.
One more lick…
Slowly, I licked it, more and more slowly,
and wrapped it up more and more quickly.
Now there’s only me and this plastic candy wrapper.
I must hold back what saddens me.

生活

生活

我珍爱过你
像小时候珍爱一颗黑糖球
舔一口马上用糖纸包上
再舔一口
舔的越来越慢
包的越来越快
现在只剩下我和糖纸了
我必须忍住:忧伤
Close
