Love

Your salary is not love and your word is not love.  Your clothes are not love and holding hands is not love.  Sex is not love and a kiss is not love.  Long letters are not love and a text is not love.  Flowers are not love and a box of chocolates is not love.  Sunsets are not love and photographs are not love.  The stars are not love and a beach under the moonlight is not love.  The smell of someone else on your pillow is not love and the feeling of their skin touching your skin is not love.  Heart-shaped candy is not love and an overseas holiday is not love. The truth is not love and winning an argument is not love.  Warm coffee isn't love and cheap cards bought from stores are not love.   Tears are not love and laughter is not love. A head on a shoulder is not love and messages written at the front of books given as gifts are not love.  Apathy is not love and numbness is not love.  A pain in your chest is not love and clenching your fist is not love.  Rain is not love.
Only you.  Only you, are …

salamku untukmu, gunung-gunung...

Saya merayakan ulangtahun saya di Gunung Kencana bersama sahabat saya Mr Cajoon dan rekan-rekan mapala saya, dan sebait puisi Soe Hok Gie berkelebat di kepala saya. I always love the mountain. Gunung selalu terasa romantis. Mr Defender menelepon saya tepat tengah malam untuk mengucapkan selamat. Saya minum sereal susu dan mengobrol dengan sahabat-sahabat saya di samping api unggun. Sungguh cara yang baik untuk berulang tahun, bukan?
Happy birthday to me!
