Johnny Cash – Hurt


“Hurt”
(originally by Nine Inch Nails)

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that’s real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

[Chorus:]
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar’s chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

[Chorus:]
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

QQ旧诗-信徒

<.信徒.>
—–she is a believer

春分随风撒下的种籽
从泥土里爆炸,抽芽,开花,贯穿盛夏

她站三楼阳台注意到花开的声音
秘密问花儿:为何要开这般高?

花儿不答
徒然添加了她的迷信:

最刺骨的快乐
哪比得忘却安全感 (forget about security)
象花朵冒险为荣誉与美而生!

QQ旧诗-机会

<.机会.>
—– to a doubter

教授甲说: 数据让人了解世界 (data allows you to understand the world)
他不慎听到教授乙说: 我不相信我的数据 (I do not trust my data)

他极喜欢教授乙的话
捡来当作座右铭
不惜丢掉了了解世界的机会

QQ旧诗- Hello Stranger!

Hello, Stranger !
—–photo by rufus gk

“you like women!” I said.
“Yes, all artists do. when looking at a beautiful woman, we feel relaxed.” Rufus said.

like all starving artists,
he picks up uncommon subjects out of common streets

necessarily, he showed me three pictures of his strangers
sufficient to illustrate the meaning of it all

QQ旧文-宾州路上

零六年夏, X.在宾州, 上学路上, 用手机拍摄发来的一张照片, 调出来存档.

<.trespasser。侵入者.>

五月,在人家新翻过泥土的庄园
飞来一只红雀
它好奇,冷静
明显是个侵入者
它在‘禁止通行(NO TRESPASSING)’的私有领地
每每踩一脚
从来不怕惩罚

我曾经于神树下许愿
我被安排遇到一个女人

这个女人一贯渺视我的戒备
她的出现
立刻解除我对所有权 (ownership)的过分追求
