Pantas saja di sini udara memanas
Ada satu matahari lagi yang terbit di seberang meja
Bersinar, merekah, energi yang membuncah
Ada kecintaan yang tak hirau bersembunyi,
menyeruak keluar memecahkan sepi.
Terang saja dunia jadi benderang
Sebutir matahari bersinar di seberang meja
Sinarnya dekat, menyusup masuk kulit hingga sudut tersulit
mengusir tikus dan ngengat penyuka lembab.
Tentu saja kau pusat tata surya
dengan planet dan bulan mengitari sempurna
Aku di seberang meja adalah planet yang mengembara,
tak berinduk, tak bertuan,
perlahan jatuh dalam daya tarik Tuan.
Oktober 2013 – Maret 2014
Bulan setengah meninggi
Cangkir-cangkir kopi ditinggalkan menggigil
Ada bibir yang gugup digigit
Serta kata-kata yang tenggelam di perigi
Malam dan bulan menyebut nama
Lengan demi lengan berangkulan
Dengan nama Bapa dan Bunda
Keduanya diikatkan dan diingatkan
Sebagian bulan jatuh ke altar
Remuk dan lebur. Riuh menggelepar,
napasnya dicabuti satu per satu
Andai cintaku bisa kauperlakukan begitu
Setengah sisa bulan meninggi
Gigil sunyi hati dan cangkir-cangkir kopi
dan bibir sendiri yang gugup digigit
Sementara di depan altar sepasang kau dan ia berpagut legit
I cannot say that my life is a flat one, but it is a comfortable one for sure. Too comfortable until you keep asking me to leave that comfort zone. You are so tired seeing me eating at the same restaurant, having coffee at the same shop, or traveling to that only city. Every time you conveyed your protest I could only answer it with a short “yep yep” and the next day having my coffee at that coffee shop again.
You are definitely a kind of powder candy that pops in our mouth. Have you ever tasted that candy in your childhood? That was my favorite candy ever. It felt like a magic feeling the pops in your mouth and hearing the pops vine through your jaws to your ears. And so you are. You are a magic popping in front of me. You are not sweet for sure – a fact that you already knew and admitted and so are the candies! – but who need sweetness when they are having such a beautiful magic in front of them? You bring excitement in my life, you silently encourage me to leave my comfortable box by running around Beachwalk that day with my son. Yeah, since that day I try to be more flexible and playable to my son. Sometimes we run to his classroom or jump around whenever we feel happy and excited. You know what? It cheers up my day too! I don’t care if people see us with a strange sight as long as we are happy and enjoying the moment, the only thing we have in this world.
At this very good moment I would like to thank you for your presence. I learn so many things from you. Please, please, don’t give up on me. I am stubborn, maybe the most stubborn human creature in this world – sometimes I wonder if my brain is actually made of rock – but I still can hear you. Don’t hesitate to slap me on the face – literally and figuratively – if I do something very very bad. That’s what a great friend do, isn’t it?
Thank you, Prissa, for being so expressive and wise at the same time. Trust me, I’m doing something better than leaving my comfort zone: I am breaking the zone.
Oh, okay. That is just another excuse. Pardon me. 😀

Dedicated to my one and only Miss Prissa
