as you slept


I sat near you
right on your bed
listened to your snore, smelled your scent
how i missed you
how i lost you for quiet long time
how i wanted the time to stop
and wished one single day was 48 hours
frogs were outside, sang a summer song
too late!
its winter already!
your warm hand gone cold
cats were frozen
snakes slithered in the mid night
they waited
waited
waited!
i cried
busted!
tears gone sour
love gone bitter
as you slept
as you slept
as you slept!

bisu


ingin kuraup jiwamu
kupintal bersama waktu
biar malam tak menggerutu

besok berbeda
tergulung kita
di samudra mati rasa

bisu
memeluk rindu

(8 April 2008)


jika jarak bisa digulung


Jika jarak bisa digulung seperti senar layang-layang
kutarik kau biar kering sudah darah itu terbawa burung jalak 
entah kemana mungkin ke penantian sudut mimpi.

Mana memar yang lukai hatimu.

Di sini jantungku sesak menghitung helai rambut sang malam serta bintang di sapuan angkasa.

Ini mimpi episode sembilan sembari menyulam regangan waktu berserakan 
bersama kepiting penenung yang berjalan gontai ke arah pantai.

Kuselipkan napas di kantung waktumu seraya memandangi 
jarum berdetak menguap pagi pergi.

Bentangkan jadi selimut malam bersulur biru dimana engkau terpejam
dalam hitam.

Kita belum bisa berkata
belum sekarang atau mungkin tidak akan.

Jika jarak bisa digulung akan kutarik kau dari hutan pinus yang
sesatkan arti jelaga.

Kukeringkan danau agar engkau tak lagi wajib bercermin 
dan kura-kura enggan menyapihmu dalam dahaga. 

Kubebaskan dirimu tanpa kata-kata tanpa ajian membelah bianglala.

Hanya pelukan dari jemari berpeluh yang rindu airmatamu dan kamu 
serta kata maaf yang dulu diajarkan orangtua kita tanpa lekukan ombak seperti salah satu lukisan hitam-putihmu.

Begitu sederhana, begitu saja.

Building Block

I found this cute cute cute leather bag pieces on the net. Building Block is a multi-medium design project based in Los Angeles, initiated in Tokyo by sisters Kimberly & Nancy Wu. Its focus moves freely in between luxury and industrial design where utilitarian materials and processes translate into minimalist forms. With the intent of magnifying essentials and editing out excess, Building Block finds continual inspiration in returning back to square one. Don't you love Japanese's designers? www.building--block.com

Gendis and Budi Prewed Shoots

To my friend and business partner, Gendis and her (now) husband, Budi. The photos are so cute. I cant stop using that big trees on the park as background setting. Beautiful. The house setting was taken in Gendis' grandparents house in Bandung. A big Dutch-colonial-look house with big windows, vintage furniture, vintage paintings. I'm glad they loved this photos. Happy wedding you two :)
