sail to the moon

January 26, 2012 § 23 Comments

been following the shadow of your waving hand
to collate my fragmented strange dreams

there’s a sea behind the clouds
where eternal lights can be found

you draw the map of the sky
while I learn how to use the compass

then put our stardust on a bright twilight
and sail to the moon

wireless world

mustahil melihat sifat manusia dari tulisannya
hitam dan putih tanpa emosi, melawan dunia yang nyata
teks berbaris, gelombang udara, dan kotak ribuan suara

tapi suaranya malam itu meredam gelisahku
dia adalah distikon hidup yang pernah aku tahu
dengan indahnya menghentikan waktu

~Surabaya, 30th of October 2011, Yoshioka Yui on my playlist

no perspective

in a tip of the endless shadow
there will be a light

it’s always waiting for you
even if you’re desperate on finding it

hold on tight to my hand, stay with me
I’ll guide you through the dark

~Surabaya, 30th of May 2011, little light in the shadow

confession 2.0

November 13, 2010 § 17 Comments

my left is always the weakest side of mine
most of my story is often colored by some depressive narratives

but I’m not one of those suicidal kinds, dear
I’m just a sensitive-case boy with a bipolar disorder problem

maybe if my heart stops beating, it won’t hurt this much
because nobody can’t hurt me anymore

white/black

November 3, 2010 § 6 Comments

selalu ada dua kutub dalam diriku, putih dan hitam
seperti saat engkau melihat dua warna di mataku

seperti kata mereka saat bersamaku,
“jalan pikiranmu tak pernah linear, kawan”

juga seperti saat dirinya memandangku saat aku berkata,
“aku hanyalah perpaduan dari dua warna itu, karena itulah aku berbeda”

~Surabaya, 3rd of November 2010, my laptop is as black as night

kings and queens

October 21, 2010 § 5 Comments

Into the night
Desperate and broken
The sound of a fight
Father has spoken

We were the kings and queens of promise
We were the victims of ourselves
Maybe the children of a lesser God
Between heaven and hell, heaven and hell

dongeng senja

October 13, 2010 § 10 Comments

ceritakan padaku tentang dongeng senja itu
ketika kita masih berumur belasan
begitu berani menantang angin dan ombak
di atas rakit yang dipinjamkan alam

masih ingatkah kau tentang warna senja saat itu?
warna-warna yang mentari pun seakan tak mau berhenti memandangnya
menghambatnya untuk sekedar bersembunyi di balik peraduan
melukiskan mimpi kita tentang tanah-tanah yang jauh di seberang

~Surabaya, 13th of October 2010, memori tentang senja
