    Sifar

    Sifar.
    Kosong.
    Zero.
    A circular symbol that means nothing,
    But also everything.
    A symbol of paradox, where beginning and the end means the same thing,
    So when I have a blank space in my head,
    A void devoid of anything,
    trying to avoid everything,
    I feel a fear in me.
    Whether this is a beginning of something terrible
    Or the ending of something incredible.

    [Filler Fridays #5]: Bunga

    Bunga raya, Bunga rosa,
    Bunga tumbuh, darahnya baja,
    Darah sama, lain hala,
    Merah serupa, tidak sama beratnya,
    Berat pound, berat lagi dosa,
    Berat tradisi jangan dilupa,
    Bunga raya, bunga rosa,
    Bunganya sekuntum, yang bezanya budi dan bahasa.

    [Filler Fridays #4]: Infinite Loop

     

     

    the constant circling of

    burning rubber

    brings us ever nearer to

    a halt 

    (i hope).

     

    and i, whose will is

    as sturdy as gelatin castles, begin

    rubbing my aching

    temples.

     

    i hurt for sugar,

    for the rush of a simple

    carbohydrate.

     

    i scream for fizz,

    plead for a sudden jolt

    of liquid excitement.

     

    i ache to laugh

    like insanity knows no friend

    other than myself.

     

    i want to smile.

     

    but these desires fall short

    in the utter silence of

    these damned circling tyres

    that will never stop.

     

    we’re travelling in circles.

    [Filler Fridays #1]: Tongues

    I speak in tongues

    Cuz I love the exhilaration

    Brought by the combination of

    cognition and intuition

    using words that have

    Same meaning

    with a different upbringing.

     

    Lidahku bernyawa

    Apabila bertutur beribu bahasa

    menyerap intipati budi pekerti budaya diluar jendela biasa
