Love Sweet Triangle

It is the sky
Beijing’s sky never fails reminding me
of the open and the grandness
The dry blue sky
often arouses my memories
on love, friendship, friendliness
it is a link between city and it’s uneaseness,
and the motion of young life…

Time prime
I was lucky and happy in the capital
A young lady was ever on quick steps
once in silver Qipao dress almost transparent,
once wearing green mini skirt hitting tennis ball around
Laugthers filled in a lovely circle,
boys and girls were at play
game of volleyball
or mate

Liu was the most handsome young man
darker, tall and straight, of strong line
with light steps
he walked seemly on water
or like a feather dancing to the wind;
a future leader very fine

Fan was an average boy
In my eyes
he was very white, slightly puffy, of soft line
his walking steps were longer
often seen with his smiling face combined
he was a bit shy…

It was a job extension
for me to do
in an institute from aerospace ministry
a trainning need to be done
With much heat in at that age
a love triangle happened among us three
which i could not forget
untill today …

Liu and Fan lived upstairs
in a same dorm room,
I lived on donwstairs as trainee
a hometown fellow of Fan
Sometimes boys invited me for diner
Was that out of the care of fellowship?
or there was something special ?
I couldn’t know
but to feel

Yet love goes
sometimes one way
sometimes on return
sometimes the traffic is just jammed by the crowds
young hearts are sensitive to the sweetness of love
one has to stand it’s sour, bitter, joy and pain
after tasting all
we know love’s essence
and more…

I felt much attached to Liu
Reasons?
not for sure;
just wanted to be close to him at any given chance,
just hoped our ping pang time never ends
just wished to stay in his office until after midnight
stars shine listening to our hear beats
silently sigh

Smiling is that
once we talked,
long in office after work to night,
finally he took me on his laps..
There was nothing could be more dizzily sweet,
my heart was stopping
for the goodness
of what kind…

It was intimate time,
we were the best friends and more..
I knew
match makers were chocking to him,
he could not refuse,
but he did not like to go out for the glass frames
with that girl whom he was assigned

Training finished in a year
I had to say goodbye
to those beloved boys
to be back home
that’s no fun

Yet my love to Liu lasted enduring,
my friendship to Fan continued to no end…

Once at home we went out me and Fan
for the winer’s ice lantern show
Did we hold hands? I don’t know.
but I think
I did have to fall between his arms
while we slided down ice hill of 30 meters high
with laughters and giggles
combined

Two years later on business trip
I planned and stopped by

It was Liu who picked me up at train station
It was another hot summer in Beijing,
two young hearts waves were waving
feelings and feels couldn’t be hidden
yet many thing had happened,
there would be a long chat
like before,
at dorm’s dinner table we talked and talked…

After the dinner
Liu specially arranged me to Fan,
we washed loads of dishes in the kitchen
I could feel a bit weiredness was plused to our friendship

The following day
it was Fang who could take me
to shop clothes,
Little Fan then turned to a real gentleman
I felt his gentleness and love
that made me red
feeling fine

But I had to go again
leaving Beijing and it’s dry blue sky..
I miss Liu hard in years
it was almost not possibly
for me to catch the train
without feeling him for kiss
or at least seeing eyes shine…

Liu was the same single gentleman
yet he could not handle those girls by matchmaking
and there was another intern
who was towards him falling
couldn’t get him off mind

Like a spoiled little girl
I ever was, I insisted
Liu must send me to the train down south
Fan was aside, hearing my almost crying voice,
with the fruits and drinks he bought in hands
his eyes were begging me,
he said:
“Please let him go for just an half hour to rearrange
and then when he comes back I will go…
let him see you off
OK?”

Such loving words from the little brother Fan!
My heart was dropping from flying to sinking
In front of me a bit smaller him
suddenly grew to a giant man,
who I could not not to respect
but love

Time flies love goes by…
After many years we all became middle aged human
I was in the foreign relationship and trip to Europe
Liu was still a single on his road to higher run

Once more I pass by Beijing
and it’s blue blue sky..

This time it was a golden autumn
Beijing presented it’s most brilliance to it’s wandering child
I was received by Liu without Fan this time
it seemed much alone to my mind

We finally sit in a cinema for Titanic
In the dark,
I asked him in a way I felt half funny:
“Why you are still single after so many years?”
He said:
“Girls are still lining on queue,
don’t you feel worried and joke!”

And I asked about Fan
Liu told:
“Fan was married
to a nice girl
now has his darling daughter happy
with new job and family all fine..”

The Titanic was drowned
Love with time was not gone

Taking the final wave to Liu and Beijing
At international departure
I was feeling strange about him
and missing Fan…

That day,
Beijing’s sky was also blue
dry and high
my heart was filled with special tastes about love
my wish and thoughts were drifting
far away from home
far away from those boys in my love life
with and without goodbye
I must fly to become world’s citizen
there is more fun
