Who is Liu Xia?

Who is Liu Xia?

 

I live like a plant in the day

With no voice and no human interaction

Or like a corpse at night…

 

I curl into a ball

As somebody knocks at the door

My neck starts to stiffen

But I cannot leave…

 

I speak to myself too solitary

I have not the right to speak, to speak loudly!

I live like a plant

I lie like a corpse!
