When first I grasped a pen, began to write
My plan, my life’s roulette, was not yet formed
And yet the me who did appear at night
Had taken steps, accomplices suborned
Ah, innocent in youth we two did play
Our volumes shared, our wits we gleef’lly matched
But something darker when you went away
From there desire to outdo was hatched
Much ink thus spilled, the pages all cast forth
The bottles swallowed up by stormy sea
The answer’s south, but still I’m looking north
And hoping—waiting—you’ll come back to me
Yet I have learned, while lookers-on engorge
A few weeks ago I finished what I’ve been calling “that visual novel”:「うみねこのなく頃に」, or “When the Seagulls Cry”. I was reading it in sync with a friend (a chapter at a time) so it took about a year and a half for us to actually get through all eight episodes.
And…wow. Totally worth it.
