Previously known as Lack of Quality - or Quality Thereof. Changed the name because I thought it sucked. The poem itself, in other hand, I think is one of the best I've translated in English. A rare case of a work from my earlier years that I think still actually holds up. Enjoy.

Loneliness consumes

Company irritates

Everything I held as a truth

is now out of date

When I first thought

it would be okay

I thought I saw dawn

but it was getting late

for me, that is

...

WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY

Sorry for that

I lost it

I tried to stall it

but in the end, I fought it

I forced it

to seem like I wanted

and tossed it

just to see what it would cost me

and it was

everything

everyone

and

all

.

But what did I lose, then?

Who knows?

I, for one, don't.

But I just feel that it

whatever it is

is not there

I want it back

Not for the love for it

but for pure jealousy

Because I am what I am

A man
