I really love to taste […]

Flashbacks


Fictions, Poetry

-Lorong Cinta-


Fictions, Poetry

Ada sedikit perih yang terasa ketika mengingatmu lagi, perih yang sebenarnya aku nikmati sebagai bukti bahwa kita pernah bersama. Kususuri lorong ini kembali dengan sangat perlahan, berusaha menghidupkan kembali perasaan yang aku rasakan saat melewatinya bersamamu. Aku melihat ke kanan, masih ada lukisan […]

saat langit penuh bintang


Fictions, Poetry

disuatu sudut di sekitar Jakarta Selatan, beberapa malam ini, langit yang kelam sangat cemerlang dengan hadirnya taburan puluhan bahkan mungkin ribuan bintang. Ada yang bersinar terang, redup, ada juga yang berkerlapkerlip. indah,, sangat indah,, pemandangan itu tentu saja membangkitkan romantisme di hati, meski tak tau akan membaginya dengan siapa secara khusus, tapi hadirnya orang-orang yang […]
