Title: Toriko (Prisoner)
Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi

The more eloquently I speak,
the more you go on the defensive,
choosing your words carefully.
What’s going on?
You don’t even try to understand the real me.
You went to see him Friday, didn’t you?
Could you break it off without a hitch?
How was it? I’d like to know,
just how much of a bitch you are. *1
After we fucked like crazy
I want to fucking hurt you.
I know it’s reckless of me, but I want to be with you
I want to believe in love.
I heard through my best friend,
a rumor that you were a tough customer,
Screw him, He doesn’t know the new you.
It’s probably because you had such a miserable childhood,
that you seem to be starved for affection,
still dragging that lonely little girl with you.
I want to be restrained always, til I become impotent. *2
take me to Heaven
Give me your love
Whether asleep or awake,
you won’t leave my thoughts,
I guess I’ll become your prisoner and rise to heaven

Translator’s Notes: On to the *’s!
*1 – Get the feeling that this girl didn’t break it off with the guy, and
she’s still seeing him on the side.
*2 – Not as in ‘can’t get it up’ as in powerless, helpless, dependent.
