An Interview

Yesterday, I talked to a stranger who turned into a great guy to talk with. Let's call him as Arliman. He gave me a new perspective and convinced me that I'm smart, which (at first) I refused the fact as I couldn't answer and explained some of his questions. After confessing that I didn't know …

Smell of you

Lunch meeting with a friend brought me to a coffee chain in a distinguished mall at 8 a.m. I was about to do some works before. As I stepped through a big glass door, walked heading the bar, the smell of you woken up your fleeting presence in my mind. We've never had a meeting …

Absence (6)

Di sini lah saya, duduk manis di bangku tengah seberang kandang burung Taman Suropati, setelah keluar dari gedung kantor Bappenas. Membayangkan sumber daya manusia di gedung tersebut telah berkontribusi kepada bangsa dengan buah pikirannya, apakah mereka puas dan bahagia? Lalu memandangi starling yang berjualan, lalu lalang orang, air mancur yang segar, pengemudi ojek online bergerombol …

Dear You, Sang Maha membangunkan ku pukul 03:17, Ia paham hamba-Nya butuh pertolongan. Aku sambut uluran tangannya, namun tak ku sambut kesempatan pelukan tak kasat mata yang sepertinya lebih aku butuhkan.

Beberapa kali bermain di pekarangannya yang sempit, melihat-lihat ke sisi jalan namun sebatas melihat karena tidak tahu kemana-mana. Si pemilik rumah tidak lagi peduli …

Absence (1)

"I Never Knew I Needed" Team, From Yesterday's Event (10 Aug, 2019) After 11 years since your absence, I met your copy (minus a hug). Even though I already found one, but this man shared the same appearance and acts like you did (as long as I remember) as he is at the same age …

Bulan yang Terlupa

Malam ini aku sadari bahwa langit tidak secerah kemarin. Daerah Sudirman terlihat keruh dengan polusi cahaya dan polusi udara dari kendaraan di jalanan Jumat malam. Bulan indah nan terang kemarin tidak lagi terlihat malam ini. Entah tertutup gedung tinggi atau tertutup awan. Malam ini aku sadari bahwa aku dan bulan semakin mirip di mata mu. …
