Kaku

Mataku kaku, dibiarkan lemas dalam lautan gambaran yang kini bagaikan anganan yang kian terluntur warnanya, detik demi detik, hingga yang tinggal cuma imbasan memori bersebaran dari episod lalu. Namun sejauh pandangan, mataku terus berjuang, menunggu sekelip sinaran harapan.

Tanganku kaku, dibiarkan berulang-alikan di tengah-tengah udara dalam kemalapan cahaya lilin, bagaikan dedaun kering yang kehilangan arah. Belasan tubuh berganti timbul dan hilang, tak satu yang mampu mencecah sentuhan kulitku. Namun selagi terasa kelembapan udara, tanganku terus berjuang, menunggu segenggam jejari yang tulus.

Kakiku kaku, dibiarkan berayauan di celah-celah tarian bebayang, di sudut-sudut terpencil, dari lorong sempit ke bilik gelap penuh aksi. Kepenatan terasa terlampau. Namun selagi terasa kedinginan lantai, kakiku terus berkeliaran mengejar destinasi yang maya, menunggu sesudut halangan manis yang dijanjikan.

Hatiku kaku, dibiarkan bogel dikelilingi harapan and janji kosong yang tajam, bersebaran dari setiap sudut and penjuru. Kepahitan datang membawa pilu, mencemari keghairahan yang hanya bersinggah singkat di setiap ruang sempit ini. Namun selagi terasa aliran emosi, jantungku terus berdengup menunggu seiris cerita dongeng yang kekal abadi.

Kaku. Dibiarkan kaku.

timbul 'and' hilang?

you wrote it yourself?

Lovely. Sitting in my little workstation, I can almost feel the sting of the cold tile floors.

Thank for the memories, bro.

Hi, bravingkl just love every piece of words you wrote. I have fallen in love with you (i mean your blog).Guess, the last part should sound "jantungku terus berdengup...".

Otakku kaku, memikir bayanganmu.

asmadi:

gosh, yes, it should be jantung, shouldn't it? it's ok for everything to be kaku, as long as it's not 'zakarku kaku'.. ;)

OMG I understood only 70% of the words! I was never very good at Malay - now I'm even worse!

Hmmm let's see:

Alamak, saya faham tujuh puluh peratus (is that right?) perkataan sahaja. Saya dulu tidak pandai guna Bahasa Malaysia - sekarang saya lagi teruk!

Oh. My. God.

pakcik:
frankly, I *never* thought urut batin actually means that! I mean, i see this on signs like all over the place! surely it has to be something less kinky??? :">

jay:
