Talk With Night

Rating: 5.0

与夜交谈
Talk with night

与夜交谈
Talk with night
就像自言自语
Just as talking to oneself
声音是不需要的
No need for voice
也不需要手势
Neither need for gestures
表情和姿态也都不在话下
Expression and posture are all counting for nothing

夜色疾驰如梭
Night gallops as shuttle
是夜场人群的天地
The world of night shift people
他们昼伏夜出
They sleep the day walk the night
如同战争影片的夜袭
As night attack in the war movies
战争远没有过去
War has far from over
内心之战尤甚
The internal war is even worse

与夜之交谈
The talk with night
没有旁听
With no audits
一切似乎
Everything seems
没有记录在案
No record filed
无需担心
No worries
可以从开始谈到结束
May talk from beginning until ending
没有问题
No problem

与夜之交谈
Talking with night
更需要倾听
Need more listening
尽管没有声音
Though there is no voice
你仍然可以听见
You can still hear
只要你倾听
Only if you listen

一切无声的声音
All the voiceless voices
可以被听到
Can be heard
这么的猛烈
Vigorous like so
这么的响亮
Resounding like so
都在这与夜之交谈之中
All amongst the talking with night
今夜
Tonight

This is such a good poem. It reaches deep in my soul, and helps me to see these emotions are universal. Many good lines - I'd like to pull these out as especially effective: Though there is no voice ??????? You can still hear ????? Only if you listen
