Suddenly the feeling I’m living my life wrong by O Gyu-won

(translated from the Korean by geul)

 

There being nothing as easy as sleeping, not being
able to do even that with eyes wide open
between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m.
between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m.’s dreaming
suddenly the feeling I’m living my life wrong, this feeling
douses my head with a bucket of cold water.

Having nothing to say, turning over with eyes wide open,
hugging my wet body
Since I lived my life wrong, continuing to live wrong is also a way to live
and thus the satanic night deceives me.
