To say not to be disappointed is to deceive yourself.
I'm not sad, seriously, but I have to say, I'm a bit lost.
Maybe I'm just a passenger in your life, it's not worth mentioning, and it's not worth a trace of memories, but I always thought that at least you remember who I am.
I think you forgot me? Or do you just think you have nothing to say to me? Can't you say hello? I'm a little disbelieved.
I remember that when you were the editor of the essay team, you always felt that the poems you wrote were unparalleled, and it might be ridiculous in the eyes of others, but I think you have a lot of potential and interesting daydreams.
You always say that the thick stacks of poems you write can kill people, and I said that the other day I will also kill you with a thick stack of prose. You must have forgotten it, but I remember it.
We met by chance in a coffee shop in Tainan. I think you must have forgotten it, but I remember it.
Many people like to call you Xiaochang, but do you know? When I talk to you from beginning to end, I like to call you Aben, because that's how I first knew your name.
When we meet, we like to blame each other, but in my heart, what I always say to my mouth is different.
I envy you for a family that supports you and has the ability to help you achieve your dreams. I envy you for being so talented in words. I envy you for pursuing your ideals without any fear.
I like the poems you write, because your poems are written very vividly, and only the poems you write are understandable to me.
I like your boast, because I really think you have the ability to become a bright star in the future literary world.
I like your frankness. You don't need to twiddle your words, just like me.
Whenever I see a good poem, I will think of you first. Do you remember that I gave you a poem? I think you must still keep it, because you love poems.
Forget it, I forgive you for forgetting me, forgive you for not taking me seriously.
Really, I don't blame you. In the future, I will still bless you all the time, and I look forward to seeing you shine in the future.
