Aku Ingin Mencintaimu Dengan Sederhana

 Illustration: (c) Gabriella Kartini Panaory 2011



Aku ingin mencintaimu dengan sederhana:
dengan kata yang tak sempat diucapkan kayu kepada api yang menjadikannya abu

Aku ingin mencintaimu dengan sederhana:
 dengan isyarat yang tak sempat disampaikan awan kepada hujan yang menjadikannya tiada


-Sapardi Djoko Damono



Every time I read this poem, I can feel the blood rushes into my brain.
That means, I wholeheartedly love it.

Life's getting so complicated lately. I couldn't see the differences between black and white.
People lie to me without feeling guilty, so I think it's fair enough if I hide my real feelings.
Wait, no. I didn't lie to anybody, I'm just trying to mend everything by myself.
I was fooled and hurt, again and again.
I'm getting used like this, but, man, you've to know I wasn't born to please you.
