What They Need

Every feeling needs to be expressed.

There are hundreds way to express feelings.
Like painters need canvas
Like singers need songs
Like sculptors need chisels
Like guitarists need guitars
Like pianists need pianos
Like bassists need guitar-basses
Like drummers need drum kits
Like DJs need turntables
Like designers need pencils
Like MCs need microphones
Like models need runways
Like photographers need cameras...

My heart needs you.

Jemput Aku Pulang

Aku hilang di tengah tempat yang tidak dikenal.
Seorang diri di tengah gelap.
Gelap yang membuat bulu kuduk berdiri.
Dingin, dingin yang menusuk tulang.
Basah oleh hujan deras yang menggores luka.
Aku berteriak minta tolong, tanpa suara dari mulutku.
Aku berlari kencang, tanpa gerakan dari kakiku.
Aku mencari jalan pulang, tanpa arah kanan dan kiri.
Aku melihat malam, tanpa cahaya menuntun mata.
Dan aku meronta tanpa bergerak.
Lepaskan aku, lepaskan.
Aku ingin ditemukan.
Temukan aku di sini.
Aku tak mau lagi hilang.
Aku ingin pulang.
Jemput aku, pahlawan.
Jemput sekarang.

When you get what you want, but not what you need.

When you feel so cold, but all you have is a thin cardigan.
When you're total wet, but the towel is all wet too.
When you feel so hot, but your fan can't work without electricity.
When you're lost in America and the only thing you hold is a map of Europe.
When you must call someone, but all of your phones don't have battery.
When you have a lot of pretty dresses, but your date asks you to go hiking.
And when the person you love is always besides you, but you don't feel he/she has the fire no more.

"When you get what you want, but not what you need"

Arti Cinta

Puisi (atau bacotan) ini dibuat khusus untuk Nita Meilinda,
yang akrab dipanggil Ukill,
yang lagi bingung sama arti cinta :p
Here it is!

Awalnya aku tak mengerti
Apa maksud semua ini
Ada rasa yang tak biasa
Ada gelora yang berbeda

Aku ingin di dekatnya
Dan ku ingin ia di dekatku
Seperti dahaga butuh air
Rasa ini butuh kamu

Aku pun mulai bertanya
Adakah caranya?
Haruskah ku lepas rasa yang berwarna
Kadang indah kadang gundah
Ataukah ku teruskan saja
Hingga ku jatuh dan lebih jatuh

Dan ku kembali bertanya
Apa arti ini semua?

Beberapa berkata itu bahagia
Beberapa lagi berkata itu air mata
Ada yang merasakannya
Ada juga yang berpura-pura

Ia hanya untuk dua orang
Hanya untuk sepasang
Namun dua orang yang mana?
Adakah ia menunjuk orang yang sama?

Katanya, ia buta
Katanya, ia dapat membuat lainnya terlupa
Katanya, ia dipilih bukan memilih
Katanya, ia takkan punah

  Katanya...
Itu cinta.

Hate That I Love You

That’s how much I love you
That’s how much I need you
And I can’t stand ya
Most everything you do make me wanna smile
Can I not like it for a while?

No, but you won’t let me
You upset me, girl, and then you kiss my lips
All of a sudden I forget that I was upset
Can’t remember what you did

But I hate it
You know exactly what to do
So that I can’t stay mad at you
For too long, that’s wrong

But, I hate it
You know exactly how to touch
So that I don’t wanna fuss and fight no more
Said, I despise that I adore you

And I hate how much I love you, boy
I can’t stand how much I need you
And I hate how much I love you, boy
But I just can’t let you go
And I hate that I love you so

And you completely know the power that you have
The only one that makes me laugh
Sad and it’s not fair how you take advantage of the fact
That I love you beyond the reason why
And it just ain’t right

And I hate how much I love you, girl
I can’t stand how much I need you
And I hate how much I love you, girl
But I just can’t let you go
But I hate that I love you so

One of these days, maybe your magic won’t affect me
And your kiss won’t make me weak
But no one in this world knows me the way you know me
So you’ll probably always have a spell on me, yay

That’s how much I love you
That's how much I need you
That’s how much I love you
That’s how much I need you
And I hate that I love you so

And I hate how much I love you, boy
I can’t stand how much I need you
And I hate how much I love you, girl
But I just can’t let you go
But I hate that I love you so
And I hate that I love you so, so
