“What do you think is the worst feeling in the world?”

It’s been a while, don’t you think?

Yes, love songs still remind me of you.

At first, I couldn’t breathe whenever I realize that the songs that remind me of you will only remind you of someone else.

But you know what?

I think I’m starting to accept it as the way it is.

I hope I’m gonna be fine, like what you told me I should be.

Untitled #7

Deru kendaraan di kiri kananku,

dan hingar,

dan bingar,

dan lampu jalan,

dan keramaian,

dan bayangan

dirimu, tak pernah berhenti mengusik pikiranku sedetikpun.

—- 20:32 WIB, di sebuah jalan di sisi barat kota Jakarta.

Lullaby

Good night, wherever you are.

Sleep tight, rest well, wherever you are.

May the stars come down to cover you, and the sky keep you warm, and the Earth be your bed.

Let go of your worries. Know that you’re more than enough, you’ll always be more than enough.

Good night, sleep tight, wherever you are.

To you, and you only.

​You know, you’ll always be

my first smile; the pale moon

glowing gently in my morning sky.

________________________

I think I like you, or maybe I don’t. But you’ve been my sole reason of happiness these days, the only thing keeping my mood soaring through the skies above; so perhaps, maybe, I kinda like you. I guess.

But just like a full moon lingering in the morning sky; even when the sun’s already shined so brightly, your gentle glow will still be the one thing that fully captures my attention.

…screw that, I like you. I like you a lot.
