Cloverfield

image

I can see love, so green
An age long remedy that keeps me in the aisles
So pure till I can touch my own soul
A blessing in disguise I have to find

I can see love, so green
It’s the touch of an invisible truth
What lies beneath?
It’s blinded me with the beauty of it

I can see love, so green
It comes along with a white soft chill
Enchanted together in chastity
O, it’s a blitz of bliss!

I can see love, so green
It is a sight for sore eyes
A cherish moment that destined to be mine
Reminiscent of divine denouement

I can feel love, so glory
The fragile sprouts burst from a pitch dark soil
Suddenly I’m lost in the cloverfield
Greens take my heart away

I sing for the spring, so lovely
A holy scheme of nature I found peace
Rising with hopes and dreams and future
As I lay down in the cloverfield

Huruf-Huruf Kecil Menari

Sekumpulan huruf-huruf beradu dalam seru yang tak menyatu
Terlalu lama bersanding tanpa suara, hingga benci satu sama lain
Huruf-huruf kecil itu bersembunyi
Dari kejamnya siang dan kelamnya malam
Terkelupas satu persatu diantara rindu yang menusuk dalam keramaian
Satu kata pun tak kunjung menyapa jiwa yang nyaris mati

Huruf-huruf itu beranjak ke ujung bibir yang tersungging
Menantikan irama untuk sebait puisi dari senyuman yang tak terencana
Yang tersamar..
Yang terdampar..
Yang bergetar..
Huruf-huruf kecil itu menari
Tanpa batas waktu

English Version:

THE DANCING SMALL LETTERS

A collection of letters collide in an unfused thrill
Biting too long without a voice, until hating each other
Those small letters are hiding
From the cruelty of daylight and the darkness of night
Peeled off one by one in a piercing longing among the crowds
Not a single word greets the nearly died souls

The letters move to the tip of curving lips
Awaits the tune of the poem’s rhythm from an unplanned smile
The disguised..
The stranded..
The vibrated..
Those small letters are dancing
Timeless

Seventh Layer

LAPISAN KETUJUH

Waktu tak akan berhenti untuk menyambutmu,
di daun pintu yang terbuka
Atau pada bening hujan yang membeku,
di mata ibumu

Waktu akan membiarkanmu mencari
Di tengah jeritan angin yang ribut bersuara
Di tengah serpihan kaca yang beterbangan
Sebuah jalan tersembunyi
Di kedalaman hati atau kegilaan diri

Lihatlah di balik lapisan kulit ketujuh
Diatas langit ketujuh
Tangisan bercucuran
Mendambakan cinta

Novia, 2014

English Version:

SEVENTH LAYER

Time won’t stop to greet you,
in an open door
Or in a frosted clear rain water,
in your mother’s eyes

Time will let you search
In the middle of a howling wind
In the middle of flying scattered broken glasses
A hidden path
In the depth of the heart or inside insanity

See beneath the seventh layer of the skin
Above the seventh sky
Tears are falling
Longing for love

Night Blooming Cereus

When darkness fall
Some souls fade away
To the moon and the sky
Howling with the wind to break the night

After nightfall
There’s a blooming princess
Shining white in golden lights
Full blossoms, night after night

Night Fiesta On Magical World

I walk alone, I walk alone
Through a wooden chocolate forest and sweet sugar glaze
Lollipopmoon swirling around
Till strawberry juice falling down

Sweet lips are hanging on the clouds
in the wide open skies
Sweet lips are smiling so the stars will shine
I’ll kiss those lips to steal a smile

In a world full of sweets and candy jar, I stay awhile
Ginger breads dancing on their feet, pushing me around
Every move is giving the most delicious tempting aroma

Trampoline, trombone and saxophone
Fireworks party all night long
An endless magical shooting star
A night fiesta of the black-turns-red-sky
Somehow I wonder,
why does my eyes soaring?
Stare of an empty face

Black Suede Pillow

Behind the shadow of a nightmare
Sleepless under the trees
Whistling with the constellation of the stars
Full moon over mahogany fingers

A night journey has begun
Darkened sky and smokey rivers
Where souls attached without questions
After a day, night has become a magic healer

Black suede pillow
A remedy like pills afterglow
Night after night
Dream catcher singing a lullaby

The Morning Street Walker

Time is ticking slow
In this almost-dawn side of the street
It’s slightly dark
O, tightly chill

The eyes are wide open
Waiting patiently
Waiting for a promise to see

Till he kisses the falling rays
Till he can sway the violet breeze
Till he reveals the unseen colors
Till he can taste the sweetness of glazing dews

So he takes the very first step
Humming along the street
Feet by feet
Lighter than ever

Under the shades a homeless sleeps over dusts
Undisturbed, as if no day awaits
Behind the shadows wild cats linger in circle
Unaware, as if nowhere to hide

When sunrise touches the sky
He’s been there to see, in the street
When solar heat diminishes the breeze
He’s been there to feel, in the street
When lives awake like a blossom
He’s been there to meet, in the street

It’s a promise to see hope
It’s a promise to feel gratitude
It’s a promise to meet his self belief
It’s a promise to remember
In every morning where day begins
Because he’s the morning street walker

Parts Of My Life

image

There are parts in my life when I’m feeling not alive
When I see my fingers laying on my chest
Deep wrinkled in white
Deep down inside
Like a sorrow in a hollow

There are parts in my life that I regret all the time
Memories attached lingers in my dreams
Deep within the heart
Deep down inside
I feel another life buried all the way

But when I see the falling tears
And when I see the calling fears
Hold me now, hold me now, hold me now
Open my eyes with the lights of your love
Open my eyes tonight

No, I can see now when the wind blows
I’ll be flying high, up in the sky
No, I can see now all the sorrow
I have to let go
And live beyond the dreams
