"I try to hide my loneliness in my headphones"
Lee Yun Kiki's song loops in my ears
No end
And afraid that I am dust
Your look is always a midnight dream
Close your eyes
It's all there is

I look down and pick up the fallen leaves
In the afterglow
You happen to be soaking in the warm sun
The silhouette is beautiful
Like a cream sweater in autumn

It turns out
A crush is really a heartbeat
Standing in the shy wind and rain
One's heart is in turmoil
Stirring, apprehensive
A piece of white paper-like youthfulness
It starts and disappears like this

The author's comments:

This poem depicts my crush in junior high school, me, sensitive, ordinary, stupid. He was smart, funny, and sunny. I was like the moss that spread secretly, struggling to look up at the sunlight above my head. It turns out that the so-called crush is really just a secret look up.
