Imbroglio

It should be another ordinary vacation day in Bali for me, but something in the air says something else. From the mesmerizing sunset to the colourful twilight sky that I just witnessed on the beach, I know there should be something special about the day. But my whole day already went on like any regular day... until it was dinner time.

"Excuse me," a man softly touches the back of my lower left arm. I glance at him with a plate full of the dish I picked from the food counter on my left hand. My right hand is grabbing the utensils from a smaller counter. I stare at him for two seconds, waiting for the reason of why he provoked me.

"Deidre," he looks relieved when I look back. But it's not my name he just called. I stare at him for a longer bit. There is something in his eyes that sends me a shiver. A strange warm sensation that makes me shiver.

Menanti Kau Kembali

Bali, Mar 11, 2016

Hari ini kudengar kabar kau kembali
Setelah sepi ratusan hari kulalui
Terkadang berharap mendapatimu hadir
Tapi kusadari itu hanya mimpi

Kutahu harapku percuma
Kau takkan pernah kembali
Puluhan harap terbangun semua runtuh
Dalam diam ku terus menunggu

Sepulang Sirkus

Aku berjalan pulang dengan hati riang
Seulas senyum menghias wajah yang girang
Ribuan kali telah kutonton sirkus itu
Ribuan kali pula ia dapat memukauku

Empat tahun aku menyimak dengan setia
Mengenal betul setiap pelosok dan sudutnya
Walau hanya sekian hari dan tak menetap
Kunanti saat ia kembali untuk kutatap

Atraksinya merangsang imaji dan hatiku tertambat
Wahananya mengguncang tubuhku dengan nikmat
Itulah sirkus yang membuatku mengharap
Dalam setiap kunjungnya yang hanya sekejap

Hingga saat ia berkemas untuk pergi
Terkadang berbulan tanpa kabar dan berita
Tak tahu kapan ia akan kembali lagi
Menyapaku dengan hiburan gambar dan cerita

Ingin rasanya kumiliki sirkus itu
Yang memberi tujuan dalam hidupku
Karena hampa kurasa tanpa hadirnya
Meski sesaat kumerasa memilikinya
