National Poetry Writing Month: Day #29 (April 29, 2013)

Today’s prompt is to write a poem using at least five words from other languages. I spent five years living in Tokyo after college, so I decided to just try writing something in Japanese.

僕の言葉
誤解の原因
君の逃げ出した理由
僕の孤独の始まり

未練を隠して闇に消える
でも、君の想い出を胸に秘める

Here’s a rough translation:

My words
The cause of the misunderstanding
The reason you left
The beginning of my loneliness

I hide my regret, and slip into the darkness
Still, I keep memories of you locked in my heart
