平生诗作两则

我自开始舞文弄笔,平生只写过以下两则新诗作品:

(一) 发表于1973年吉隆坡循人中学高中第10届毕业特刊的《哦!宇宙啊,我多么仰慕你》; 和

(二) 刊登于1985年4月1日星洲日报的《伤舞》。


《哦!宇宙啊,我多么仰慕你》(笔名: 爱惜)

1. 我在上个世纪60年代末,时值初中便对宇宙太空充满遐思。当时冷战时期的美苏,展开激烈的太空竞赛,年轻的我,对美国的水星(Mercury) 丶双子星座(Gemini)和阿波罗(Apollo)计划的太空探索和登月壮举,深感兴趣,热衷收集火箭升空丶星际漫游的图片; 我平生最喜欢的一部电影,就是1968年上映的《2001太空漫游记》(2001: A Space Odyssey) 。

2. 我在担任主编的高中毕业特刊里便采用不少火箭与星空的图片。我在诗中赞宇宙的深邃玄奥等,实乃由衷之言。

3. 然而,本诗主要表达的是我对当年一位低一年级丶隔壁班的学妹的暗中倾慕之情,连笔名也植入她的名字。年少轻狂,回味无穷!


4. 记得此稿曾交给学校华文老师审阅,发觉若干文字曾被修改。但我以主编身份坚持原来的遣词用句,送交刊印。




《伤舞》(笔名: 唐纳)
.
1. 1984年在青团运八打灵支会办的一次联欢晚会中,邂逅一位在当晚有份参与舞蹈表演助兴丶小我一岁却同月同日生的女子,开展一段刻骨铭心丶为期只有短短4个月的恋情。

2. 分手后非常伤心,惆怅多时。当年乐坛流行 Wham! (George Michael) 的 "Careless Whisper",其淒美的音乐丶旋律和歌词无不触动我心深处,而且意境有点相似,因此借用诗,诉说情殤。数月後投给星洲日报,受到青睐,获得刊用。

3. 年少时曾随波逐流,自取 Donald 洋名,故以"唐纳"为笔名。但年长后舍弃洋名不用。

Time can never mend
The careless whispers of a good friend
To the heart and mind, ignorance is kind
There's no comfort in the truth
Pain is all you'll find

Should've known better

I feel so unsure
As I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor
As the music dies, something in your eyes
Calls to mind a silver screen and all its sad goodbyes

I'm never gonna dance again
Guilty feet have got no rhythm
Though it's easy to pretend
I know you're not a fool

Should have known better than to cheat a friend
And waste the chance that I'd been given
So I'm never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you

Time can never mend
The careless whispers of a good friend
To the heart and mind, ignorance is kind
There's no comfort in the truth
Pain is all you'll find
.
I'm never gonna dance again
Guilty feet have got no rhythm
Though it's easy to pretend
I know you're not a fool

Should have known better than to cheat a friend
And waste the chance that I'd been given
So I'm never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you

With or without your love

Tonight the music seems so loud
I wish that we could lose this crowd
Maybe it's better this way
We'd hurt each other with the things we want to say

We could have been so good together
We could have lived this dance forever
But now, who's gonna dance with me?
Please stay

And I'm never gonna dance again
Guilty feet have got no rhythm
Though it's easy to pretend
I know you're not a fool

Should have known better than to cheat a friend
And waste the chance that I'd been given
So I'm never gonna dance again
The way I danced with you

(Now that you're gone)
Now that you're gone
(Now that you're gone)
Was what I did so wrong?
So wrong that you had to leave me alone?
