image

swarm of voices in your tongue
hurled down to your throat and 
reside in your lung
you speak your reading
as soft as hurricane

All the words are yours

let me keep the hums
wandering before I sleep
without a word
soft and soulful 
echoed on the aisle 
inner light of heart

Semua Kata Milikmu

kerumunan suara di lidahmu
bergulung ke tenggorokan dan
bersemayam di parumu
kau suarakan bacaanmu
selembut badai

Semua kata milikmu

biarkan kusimpan senandung
yang mengembara sebelum aku tidur
tanpa kata
lembut penuh jiwa
bergaung di lorong
cahaya hati
