Inky Memories (Poem)

My heart was stolen from me because i was to open too many things but i just wanted to fall in love

Slow down time all while this needle sticks me in my skin piece by piece

It still pains me to know that i was lied to but at the same time it made me feel glad that i was able to go through it just to warn others about it

My heart was like a tomato that you blended up for no reason at all

I’m repeating the same song again only because it still calms me down

I’ll make sure to one day rise against you but then again i’m doing better than you in life

So

Do you still have that tattoo.

Inspired By The Song “Tattoo” By Jess Lee

爱过一个人 心掏成空城
Ai guo yi ge ren xin tao cheng kong cheng
不知不觉 细细纹上他体温
Bu zhi bu jue xi xi wen shang ta ti wen
看似愈合的伤痕 无声地沸腾
Kan si yu he de shang hen wu sheng di fei teng
寂寞生根 剥夺思念的养分
Ji mo sheng gen bao duo si nian de yang fen

拨快时针 拨快了幸福旅程
Bo kuai shi zhen bo kuai le xing fu lue cheng
不管回忆有多销魂
Bu guan hui yi you duo xiao hun
拨慢分针 一针针眼泪纹身
Bo man fen zhen yi zhen zhen yan lei wen shen
悼念我曾经 爱的人
Dao nian wo zeng jing ai de ren

我要我很快乐
Wo yao wo hen kuai le
快乐到心如刀割
Kuai le dao xin ru dao ge
越痛越深刻越懂得
Yue tong yue shen ke yue dong de
什么值得 什么难舍 什么趁早不要了
Shen me zhi de shen me nan she shen me chen zao bu yao le

我要我很快乐 傻就要傻得透彻
Wo yao wo hen kuai le sha jiu yao sha de tou che
从今以后爱恨再拉
Cong jin yi hou ai hen zai la che
孤独再苦涩 再也伤不了我的
Gu du zai ku se zai ye shang bu liao wo de

再见一个人 不得不承认
Zai jian yi ge ren bu de bu cheng ren
遗憾从此 狠狠纹上我灵魂
Yi han cong ci hen hen wen shang wo ling hun
不推托谁的责任 不贪求永恒
Bu tui tuo shui de ze ren bu tan qiu yong heng
坚持对爱忠贞 还我信仰的眼神
Jian chi dui ai zhong zhen huan wo xin yang de yan shen

现在的我很快乐 该还的我都还了
Xian zai de wo hen kuai le gai huan de wo dou huan le
是错是颠簸是曲折
Shi cuo shi dian shi qu zhe
我都记得 我都舍得 我都丢了放了不要了
Wo dou ji de wo dou she de wo dou diu liao fang liao bu yao le

我要我很快乐 疯要有我的风格
Wo yao wo hen kuai le feng yao you wo de feng ge
从今以后勇敢做选择
Cong jin yi hou yong gan zuo xuan ze
把心烧亮了
Ba xin shao liang le
我为我自己负责
Wo wei wo zi ji fu ze

Translation:

Loved someone, robbed my heart empty like a ruined city

Unknowingly, his bodily warmth was tattooed onto me

Wounds that appear to have healed, silently burning

Loneliness has taken root, exploiting the nutrient of thoughts

Speed up the clock’s hour hand, speed up the happy journey, regardless how ecstatic the memory was

Slow down the minute hand (Called minute needle in Chinese), needle by needle tattooing with tear, to mourn the one I once loved

I want to be very happy, so happy it feels a knife is flaying my heart.

The more painful, the more deep, the more realization of what is worthy, what is hard to let go, what is better to throw away as soon as possible

I want to be very happy, if one wants to be silly then be thoroughly silly, from now on no more dragging on with love, no matter how lonely or how bitter, nothing can hurt me anymore

Good bye someone (It may also mean meeting someone again), I cannot deny, regret was tattooed onto my soul

Not going to blame anyone, I am not vying for forever

Persist my loyalty towards love, return my believing gaze

Speed up the clock’s hour hand, speed up the happy journey, regardless how ecstatic the memory was

Slow down the minute hand (Called minute needle in Chinese), needle by needle tattooing with tear, to mourn the one I once loved

I want to be very happy, if one wants to be silly then be thoroughly silly, from now on no more dragging on with love, no matter how lonely or how bitter, nothing can hurt me anymore

I am very happy now, what is supposed to be returned have been returned

Are they a mistake, a bump, a complication, I remember them all

I let go, I threw them all away, released, not needing

I want to be very happy, be crazy in my own style

Bravely make decisions from now on, burn my heart bright, I am responsible for myself
