Poet’s Nook; "Things I Want Decided" by Izumi Shikibu

Which shouldn’t exist

in this world,

the one who forgets

or the one

who is forgotten?


Which is better,

to love

one who has died

or not to see

each other when you are alive?


Which is better,

the distant lover

you long for

or the one you see daily

without desire?


Which is the least unreliable

among fickle things—

the swift rapids,

a flowing river,

or this human world?

OneLove
