Kuroki Nagisa – Hasami

April 3, 2018

Hasami – はさみ – Scissors

身を守るすべを知らなくて
引き出しのはさみを取り出した
鈍く光った表面に
本当の私が写っている

mi o mamoru sube o shiranakute
hikidashi no hasami o toridashita
donkusaku hikatta hyoumen ni
hontou no watashi ga utsutte iru

Without knowing how to protect myself
I took the scissors out of the drawer
In their clumsily shining surface
My true self is reflected

あなたに向ける
勇気は無いが
気休め程度になるだろう
憂鬱の類いを切り裂いてしまえば
凛として立ってられるのに
恥じる心さえ切り裂いてしまえば
大胆に生きてゆけるのに

anata ni mukeru
yuuki wa nai ga
kiyasume teido ni naru darou
yuuutsu no tagui o kirisaite shimaeba
rin to shite tatte’rareru no ni
hajiru kokoro sae kirisaite shimaeba
daitan ni ikite yukeru no ni

I don’t have
The courage to face you
But maybe this will be enough for some shallow comfort
If I could cut through all the kinds of sadness
I would be able to stand tall
If I could cut through my shame-filled heart
I would be able to live my life boldly

冷たいはさみ
背中に当てれば
あの日と同じトリハダ
冷たいはさみ
背中に当てれば
何故だろう火傷よりも熱い

tsumetai hasami
senaka ni atereba
ano hi to onaji TORIHADA
tsumetai hasami
senaka ni atereba
naze darou yakedo yori mo atsui

When the cold scissors
Touch my back
I get goosebumps, just like I did back then
When the cold scissors
Touch my back
Somehow it feels hotter than burning

交差する二本の刃が
真ん中できつく抱き合えば
暗闇でさえも切り裂ける
美しいひとつのはさみになる

kousa suru nihon no ha ga
mannaka de kitsuku dakiaeba
kurayami de sae mo kirisakeru
utsukushii hitotsu no hasami ni naru

When the two crossed blades
Tightly embrace each other in the middle
They become a single beautiful pair of scissors
That can cut even in absolute darkness

あなたは返事をくれるでしょうか
身勝手な私の申し出に
感性の類いを切り開いて行ければ
真夜中も正気でいれるのに
あなたと対をなして世界を見れば
「完全」になれる気がするのに

anata wa henji o kureru deshou ka
migatte na watashi no moushide ni
kansei no tagui o kirihiraite yukereba
mayonaka mo shouki de ireru no ni
anata to tsui o nashite sekai o mireba
“kanzen” ni nareru ki ga suru no ni

I wonder if you’ll respond
To my selfish request
If I could cut open all the kinds of feelings
Even in the middle of the night I’d be able to keep a clear head
If I could form a pair with you and look at the world that way
I feel like I would be able to become “complete”

冷たいはさみ
背中に当てれば
あの日と同じトリハダ
冷たいはさみ
背中に当てれば
何故だろう火傷よりも熱い

tsumetai hasami
senaka ni atereba
ano hi to onaji TORIHADA
tsumetai hasami
senaka ni atereba
naze darou yakedo yori mo atsui

When the cold scissors
Touch my back
I get goosebumps, just like I did back then
When the cold scissors
Touch my back
Somehow it feels hotter than burning
