Moon Phase



I hide it under my skin, always hide it
And like a moon phase
There will be time it came out slowly
This secret, bursting with a strong glow
As the silence feasts the sky

My heart is a flare of fireworks
Sparking painfully and beautifully
I wish to love you in another daylight
Dismantle a longing engraved in the moon skin
Saved amidst the changing season
Untouched, unleashed the sparks that fall
In the ashen morning sky


FASE BULAN


Aku menyembunyikannya di bawah kulitku, selalu kusembunyikan
Dan seperti fase bulan
Akan ada saatnya keluar perlahan
Rahasia ini, meledak dengan cahaya yang kuat
Saat kesunyian memangsa langit

Hatiku adalah suar kembang api
Memercik pedih dengan indah
Aku ingin mencintaimu di hari terang lainnya
Membongkar rindu yang terukir di kulit bulan
Tersimpan di antara musim-musim yang berganti
Tak tersentuh, melepas percik-percik yang luruh
Di langit pagi yang kelabu
