Poker Face

By Yuu Ikeda

Screams of her soul
never make tattoos of tears

Her cheeks are always dry,
although she wants to moisturize there
by deepest pains

Howls of her soul
never make pendants of tears

Her eyes are always toneless,
although she wants to decorate there
with cruelest pains

This Love

By Yuu Ikeda

Sharpness of love
pierces my silent skin
that wants softness of eternity

This love is so sharp
that I can’t make a pendant of forever

Like needles of loneliness,
this love weakens my heart
and
takes energy to live away
from my soul

But I crave this love
My skin craves this love

Morning Coffee

By Yuu Ikeda

Morning coffee
emits fragrance of new dawn

My skin
mixes with the fragrance,
and
plays a mellow and
sugary day

This warmth is only mine
This calmness is only mine

To feel the beginning of a day,
my skin wants morning coffee,
my skin wants fragrance of new dawn

Happy Birthday

By Yuu Ikedaa

Dawn was born,

Darkness fell,

The sky whitened,

Raindrops went back
to the paradise

Dawn was born today,

Fears ended―

Stars snore calmly,

Clouds hold their breath
behind the paradise

Without

By Yuu Ikeda

Without intensity,
without gravity,
without tears,
without thorns,

she is writing the Hell

Being surrounded
by naught,

she is writing
the Hell of naught

Zero is her number
Zero is her life

Muddy colors
are weeping
around her,
the same as she does

Summer in Spring

By Yuu Ikeda

Summer already

dwells in spring

I feel it

by my skin

In calmness of spring,

in warmth of spring,

howls of summer

resound weakly

The howls like blazes

fill my skin

with heat

gradually,

and then,

I’m swallowed

by summer

although I’m in spring

Writing

By Yuu Ikeda

Writing is breathing

Words are drops of my breath

Words are flakes of my blood

My notebooks

full of my breath and blood

are always shouting,

wailing, and swaying,

to mark evidence

of living and death

on me

My notebooks

full of my breath and blood

are time

that I wanted to stop,

that I wanted to repeat,

that I wanted to carve
