Aku, dia dan Villa Merdeka

Bertunjang kaki di balkoni tingkatan ke enam. Villa Merdeka. Apa betul keputusan aku, kata dia. Apa betul keputusan aku, kata aku.

Lihat penunggang motor. Tentu dia bahagia kan, kata aku. Tak juga. Semua orang ada masalah, kata dia. Tapi tentu dia tak seperti kita. Hilang dalam jasad sendiri, kata aku. Dia diam. Aku diam. Kehabisan kata.

Tentu budak tu tak habis belajar. Kerja di bengkel. Tak ada duit. Tak ada awek. Malam-malam begini merempit. Tapi bahagia. Tak seperti kita. Aku angguk. Dia angguk.

Bila bahagia mahu bertemu kita? Tak inginkah dia bertemu kita? Aku pandang dia. Dia pandang aku.

Aku dengar hati kecil dia berkata; Berdiri di samping kau. Sudah cukup bahagia buat aku. Walau cuma sementara.

Senyum bertukar. Walau sebentar. Antara aku, dia dan Villa Merdeka.

Note: I don’t really understand Malay, but I thought this is really beautiful. I feel her restlessness in finding an answer. We always keep hesitating in every way, don’t we. But in the end, I hope we can look to brighter things, just to put a little smile in our face. I need some of those now. Thank you, Ili. Salaam.
