IS SUICIDE REALLY PAINLESS?

Part 7


Continued from Part 6


   So what does all of this identity stuff have to do with depression and suicidal thoughts?
   Having a false personality or persona doesn’t make one want to take their own life does it?

倪匡 倪匡's blog:

夏天,來日本的最大收穫是買水果。


我們吃完岡山最好最成熟的白桃之後,到桃園的小賣店,可先訂好,到時送到機場,包裝完美,不怕撞爛,貨運回家。


平時在大型超級市場也多多少少買些在路上吃。到了最後一天,去黑門市場, 各團友見到其他水果豐滿,又掏腰包。


靜岡的蜜瓜出名,每一個三四千円不等,看到有些一個賣一萬五,外表和便宜的一樣,團友問:「為甚麼相差那麼遠?」


我指著蜜瓜旁邊那塊牌子,寫著「一木一果」四個字。


水果店店主解釋:「一條蜜瓜藤可長十多個小蜜瓜。把其他的剪掉,使到蜜汁都供應剩下那一個,所以要賣貴一點了。」


想起真理教教主麻原落網的故事,此君躲在富士山腳,沒人找得到他。因為他愛吃蜜瓜,買最貴的。鄉下的...

Once I climbed

the walls of a canyon

just to release my voice beneath

a sky tinged with red velvet and rubies


it echoed hollow and flat before returning

to fill spaces and cracks and indigence

replacing thoughts of emboldened bitterness


The Milky Way created calligraphy in the dark
