寄望愛情? 算了吧 Never Anticipate Romance

近來有幾位朋友失戀,覺得很不開心就找我談心事。先不要說誰拋棄了誰,總結他們的經驗,我發現其中一個共同點:對愛情寄以厚望。愛情是美好的,但偏偏這種美好往往稍縱即逝,當你從箇中甜蜜中清醒一下的時候,或者當你陶醉其中的時候,其實愛情就已經離去了。當愛情離去的時候,不論你是在深夜裏獨自徘徊在你和她曾經一起漫步的街道而在心裏默默想起陳百強的〈等〉: Continue reading “寄望愛情? 算了吧 Never Anticipate Romance”

你向汽車專科醫生求救
趕緊送它入醫院維修
唯恐它頭昏身㷫

Does the so-called happiness mean reluctant to,
Do not want to listen to the true voice;
Does the so-called joy mean reluctant to,

Of not listening to and looking at the truth.
