Kasih Tak Sampai

Jembatan Siti Nurbaya, Padang

 

Kasih Tak Sampai

— Untuk Siti Nurbaya

akhirnya kujumpai kau di sini
di atas sungai batang arau
sebuah jembatan terbentang
menghubungkan bukit hijau
dan masa lampau
yang mengambang di udara

deretan kisah lama masih ada
tragedi dan roman airmata
gedung-gedung tua yang berhimpitan
di sepanjang tepian
kupandangi lagi matamu, bibirmu
rambutmu yang dipintal cakrawala

kapal-kapal datang dan pergi
tapi engkau tetap berdiri
bertahan dengan cintamu
di ambang waktu

Padang, 14/10/18

 

Padang
Pantai Padang– di bukit sana terletak makam Siti Nurbaya, tokoh legendaris dalam roman karya Marah Rusli.

[Poem] GOD IS NOT HERE

is

GOD IS NOT HERE

There is another who incites the wall

Hiding in an old microphone

His words scattered in the air

Splitting the city in two

And suddenly I lost you

Every time I call, you infiltrate the rock

Closing all doors from the sound of the wind

Waves

Chirping birds in open fields

Even the sun is now halved

One you take home

The rest is the darkness that you put on my face

Likewise highways, residential areas, art buildings, houses of worship.

Everyone stepped on someone else’s body to fly the flag

Faith resides above the head that ignites fire

People shout to God

But God isn’t here

In a split

I vaguely saw His face there

At the end of the road

Waving hands
