Wanting to Disappear by Takami Jun (消えたがる/高見順)

Water wants to disappear under the ground
Even the water that welled up from my heart,
as soon as it falls on the ground with the rest,
it already wishes it were disappearing
The pure thoughts of my dirty mind
are also quick to hide from the public eye

水は地下に消えたがる
私の心から湧いた水も
地上にあらわれるとともに
忽ちもう消えたがっている
きたない私のこの澄んだおもいも
ひと目から早く隠れたがっている
