Words

Have you been stranded in the middle,
On your knees, as if begging (for the right to stay)?
Have you been lost, and if you have been lost,
have you been found?
What is that one urge that keeps you at night?
And do you like it when you're up so late?
What makes the hair on the back of your neck stand?
And when they stand, do you think they need a reason?
Do you think you have it in you to say something good in words?
And if you do, do you think you would ever say them out loud?
Have you been breathing?
Are your lungs full?
(Full of shame, full of guilt, full of hope)
Have you found life in your dark room?
Or have you discovered some secret glee in pain?
Do you wish to get out?
And will your choice change if you know I am standing outside?
What if I am standing outside and waiting?
What if I am standing outside and not?

Sakit hati

Jika kita mampu melihat kepedihan orang lain,
pasti kita takkan sanggup menyakiti hati sesama sendiri.

Kalau saja sakit hati itu boleh dilihat.

Puisi Aan Masyur

Dari jendela kau melihat
bintang-bintang tanggal
Satu demi satu
Berulang mengucapkan selamat tinggal

Kadang-kadang kau pikir
Lebih mudah mencintai semua orang
Daripada melupakan satu orang.

Jika ada seorang terlanjur menyentuh
Inti jantungmu, mereka yang datang kemudian
hanya menyentuh kemungkinan.

Puisi Rangga

Bandara dan udara memisahkan New York dan Jakarta
Resah di dadamu dan rahasia yang menanti di jantung puisi ini dipisahkan kata-kata
Begitu pula rindu, hamparan laut dalam antara pulang dan seorang petualang yang hilang
Seperti penjahat dan kebaikan yang dihalang uang dan undang-undang
Seorang ayah membelah anak dari ibunya -- dan sebaliknya
Atau senyummu, dinding di antara aku dan ketidakwarasan
Persis segelas kopi tanpa gula menjauhkan mimpi dari tidur
Apa kabar hari ini?
Lihat tanda tanya itu 
Jurang antara kebodohan dan keinginan ku
memilikimu sekali lagi.

Sometimes the most person you think that think about you the most, aren't the person you really hope.
