The Colors Outside My Window


The colors outside my window
still undefinable
soft glare within my reach
in circular darkness
aglow in the ring of my eyes
those colors, false colors
had built an imaginary world
outside myself
and with a piece of silence
it will always be imaginary
And realm is on the brink,
is about to collapse;
between these linear lights
that always flashing time after time

The colors outside my window
still undefinable
the colors after the storm
always softer like a washed tears
but can you hear the seethe of the wind
still lingers above the fingers of trees
as the colors changing in the sky
I’m waiting naturally
to see what color that fades
unveil the color of you


WARNA-WARNA DI LUAR JENDELAKU

Warna-warna di luar jendelaku
masih tak terdefinisikan
pijaran lembut dalam rengkuhanku
di lingkaran kegelapan
berpendar dalam cincin bola matamu
warna-warna itu, warna-warna palsu
membangun dunia imajiner
di luar tubuhku
Dengan sepotong kesunyian
akan selalu imajiner
dan duniaku menemui tubir jurang,
hampir saja runtuh;
di antara cahaya-cahaya linear
yang menyorot dari waktu ke waktu

Warna-warna di luar jendelaku
masih tak terdefinisikan
warna-warna selepas badai
selalu lebih lembut dari tangis yang terbasuh
bisakah kau dengar pergolakan angin
masih bertahan di atas jemari ranting
ketika warna-warna langit berubah
aku menunggu secara alami
untuk melihat warna-warna yang pudar
menguak warna-warna aslimu
