Bitter Apple 苦蘋果

Bitter Apple

I think I just ate a bitter apple.
it's like the fruit from the tree of life.
but literally bitter than an ordinary apple.
It almost tastes nothing in my mouth.
But sour in my ache,
bitter in my heart.
An apple not as I've remembered.
A bitter apple...


苦蘋果

苦蘋果,

如禁果一般,
卻比平常的蘋果還苦口。
嚼在口中無味,
卻酸在痛口;苦在心頭
從沒嚐過的蘋果
一顆苦蘋果……
