Bila

Bila engkau bertanya
padaku, "Bila lagi?"
Aku hanya mampu mengukir sebuah
senyuman untuk menutupi
luka-lukaku yang tersemat
di dalam jiwa.

Tidak bermakna senyuman itu bahagia.

Andai aku tahu
jawapannya bila,
akanku jawab soalanmu,
tetapi aku hanya mampu tersenyum
seperti pelajar yang
menjawab soalan pop kuiz,
tanpa ilmu di dada.

Tapi aku percaya pada Dia,
Yang Maha Esa,

Aku sekarang hanya mampu memakai
 topeng senyuman,
dengan harapan engkau tidak
menghidu bau luka-lukaku
yang tersemat di dalam jiwa,
penat untukku bercerita,
bila engkau bertanya
"Bila?"

-Nuruljannah-

But

My dad said,
"Make more guy friends
so you can choose the
best one."
The problem is they
don't want me but
the main problem is
they are not you.

Here are two six words poems for today ^_^:

1) Goodbye
Our goodbye
is silent
and cold.

2) Worldly Love
Worldly love
is transient
except Him.

Loneliness

Loneliness
Loneliness embraces me
with its cold fingers,
every time when I call
your name.
I can feel the hollowness
inside my heart every time
when I dream about you.

-Nuruljannah-

I should have

I should have

I call upon you,
in my dreams,
in my tears.
I blame it on my
ludicrous heart,
I should have crushed that
gardenia when it started
burgeoning inside it.
You are smiling
with her slender hands on
your broad shoulders,
while despair
is suffocating
me.

"For I love him, and he didn't love back."



Two-Volume Novel
The sun's gone dim, and
The moon's turned black;
For I loved him, and
He didn't love back. 
-Dorothy Parker-


I love this poem as though it's speaking to me, "You're not alone!" This poem is palpably sad and I can indeed relate to this. By the way here are my poems for today. Both are six-word poems entitled "Unrequited"  and "Love":


Unrequited
You are
my music
of pain.


Love
You are
my poison,
my wine.

Sometimes

Sometimes,
people can be
as cold as loneliness
colder than the callous winter.
Their eyes are gelid
and they can freeze you
to death.
