Well, that was easy.
You just learned 8 Chinese words in the cutest way possible.
Real Fact: These are the character meanings (which are the same across dialects and languages- I believe in Japanese kanji they have the same meaning)
In Mandarin Chinese they are (when spoken): Kou (mouth), mu (tree), huo (fire), men (door), yue (moon), ri (sun), shan (mountain), ren (person)
These are also all radicals (kind of like the building blocks) of other Chinese characters, as well as being characters (as you see above) in their own right. Therefore, a person reading Chinese can determine some of the meaning behind the word’s character(s) by looking at their radicals.
See, learning to read Chinese isn’t as difficult as it first seems.
Even though it takes a long ass time to master. (So so sooooo long).
When he says
He doesn’t love you anymore,
Roll your shoulders back
And look him in the eye
Even when it feels like your ribs
Are breaking inward, like spider legs.
When he digs up old aches
That he swore he forgave you for,
And ask him why he didn’t leave you sooner.
Ignore the way the words feel like sandpaper
Running all the way up your throat to your mouth.
When he blames you
For mistakes that wear his face,
Do not scream.
Do not cry.
Tell him that there are boys
Who would be proud to say they’d loved you.
Tell him that in two years
You won’t even remember his name
And don’t let him see the way you can taste your own lie.
When he leaves
Ignore the howling in your blood
And do not get up after him.
Not even to lock the door.
Do not, do not
Smell his shirts when you box them up
To give them back.
Swear off dating when you realize
You’re chasing ghosts that wear his smile.
It’s okay to cry over him.
It’s even okay to forgive him.
But do not go back to him.
If he did not know how to love you the first time,
He won’t know how to do it the next.
