There He Is


I am happy.


Letting go of reasons why something cannot work.
And finding one reason that it will.

As it has been.

(Soal Kamu) Soal Hati

Ukuran rupa,
Peraturan bahasa,
Ilmu dihisab,
Sebab musabab.

Bukan, bukan soal itu.

Menang kalah,
Betul dan salah,
Hasil berkongsi,
Untung dan rugi.

Bukan, bukan soal itu.

Peneman Jiwa,
Tunas Cinta,
Hidup dan mati,
Ini soal Hati.

"Have I known you before?"

There is pain in knowing another person
and locking souls together
as much as there is home-comfort
in finding that this person understands every smile and every tear
every move and every fear.


What we see, is what we are.
At times this scares us and sets us apart.
A lot of times.

The Missing Piece

Sometimes we throw it away so hard that it breaks,
Sometimes we bend to pick the pieces up one by one,
Sometimes we put them back.

I am not whole
whenever you go.

The Best Bowl Of Soup For You

I have made you a bowl of soup.
Please, it's for you.
It is not much, it is not fancy;
but it's stirred in the best way I know,
with the last of the best spices I own.
Please, it is yours.
I will make more tomorrow,
and again the day after,
and again for all the days after.
Each time, each bowl will be the best,

We feel
As how we allow
And not
As how we're allowed

We receive
As how we give
And not
As how we are given

The Curious Incident Of The Hunt For Bread (In The Nightime)

There are things that you get to prepare yourself for;
practicing some new skills,
perfecting a move,
memorizing lines,
broadening knowledge on a particular interest.

Speaking of particular interests;
there are some things, on the other hand,
that simply do not wait for you to prepare.

These things, they come like a sudden gush of wind,
like a distant flash of lightning,
like a silent drop of rain.

I happened to be not only unprepared,
but unaware when it happened.
Looking back, it might have even been a state of denial.
But it happened nonetheless.

Alas, Love of great height and terrible distance does not bode well
with being denied for too long.
Any willful attempt of taking over the Heart ends up being a measly one.

And so there and here,
then and now I've been,
having fallen
into you.

His Mushroom

I've been found.

I've been found.

I've been found.

Isi terluah,
Bekas terhulur,
Rasa dirasa,
Cita dicipta.

Gentar melilit,
Ragu membelit,
Niat terduga,
Langkah dikira.

Rasa dirasa,
Cita dicipta,
Rungkaian makna,
Di tengah cerita.

Sayu selubung,
Senyum berhubung,
Hati terbuka,
Jiwa berjumpa.

Lembut kasihnya,
Tegas sayangnya,
Diri merasa,
Cinta tercipta.

In contradiction, love grows in strength. In confrontation and transformation, love is preserved.

"...Hunter and hunted meet and love each other. According to the laws of nature, one should destroy each other, but in love there is neither good nor evil, there is neither construction nor deatruction, there is merely movement. And love changes the laws of nature."

(The Zahir)

(Until The End Of) Time

Years become a fraction of a second
when put side by side with eternity
Where you
and I
make We.
