when the moon is blue?

...Aku yang digelar rembulan,
bertanya kepadamu yang memanggilku cahaya malam.
Berertikah cahayaku
jika hanya alam yang menari
sedangkan aku, mencari-cari seri
pada terang wajahku?
Mungkinkah lebih baik cahayaku padam
dan aku tersenyum dalam kegelapan.

(but then the moon will miss the light, and maybe the moon would say
that she'd rather be without a smile
than without light? without glory?)

...


T (you'll know what this letter means)
terima kasih
and i say it again
it is only with you, and our little old circle
and the precious few who entered later on
that i truly find refuge
when i seek it from human beings
when the moon is blue?

dibah jiwang melankoli takleh blah.

kemudian berusaha mengheret aku skali ke kancah melankolinya.

sorry beb, tak berminat.
life is too full of exciting things to dwell on the sad bits of it.

hehehe.

eii,
benda dalam YM jangan la terbitkan dekat blog.
rosak reputasi tau.

sometimes it was just a *little* bit too exciting it becomes overwhelming. not exactly sad, but melancholic? maybe.

i've always been a romantic anyway, in addition to the rational-idealistic front. it adds to the flavor of life. tak nak join (or rather, tak nak mengaku), sudah.

(one thing for sure, i'm a LEFTIST not a LEFT WING. kinda unrelated to the post. but then again.)

haha.

then your description about how to know you (which is through reading your entries) doesn't make sense.

benda dalam YM kena masukkan, baru dpt the real idea of who you are.

muahahahaha.

kejinya.

sayang sang bulan,
jika cahayamu padam, maka senyum itu hanya engkaulah yang menikmatinya. sedang jika kau bercahaya, seluruh alam tersenyum ceria.

sayang sang bulan,
hidup adalah peluang dan pilihan. dan kita selalu terpedaya menginginkan sesuatu yang tak kita punya. maka kau pun tertanya-tanya, tentang senyum dan cahaya.

sayang sang bulan,
senyum itu boleh ada, dalam cahaya atau bila gelita. kerna senyum itu letaknya di hati. jauh dalam hati.

dan sayangku sang bulan,
cahaya itu bukan milikmu. matahari di sana, hadiahkannya.

salam.
