I think about you constantly, whether it's with my mind or my heart. ~ Albany Bach Reid

Knock! Knock! Who's there? It's me, L.

Dear Ne-yo,

People who know me, know I love you. People who ride with me, would bleed to death listening to your numbers back to back in the car. Though Peter (Cetera) is still one of the best, you darl; touch me. Deeply.

Then he came along, and soon enough he claimed “One in A Million” as his. I ached, when I should have jumped with joy witnessed by the glittering skies when he hummed the song and effortlessly sang the chorus. He took me by surprise.

He; listens, and I twitch because of that.

Before, one and one person only I see dances along with you, Ne-yo as I cruise along the melody. Now, numbly I linger for the film to roll; just to see whether the image remains the same.

“Jasad tidak setanding mimpi..”

Dear Tuah,

Watching you again tonight brings up memories. Do I need to remind you that I went and watched you performed on screen twice?

Your love, my unspoken rogue, went uncherished. You who broke Gusti Putri’s heart; paid the price.

You who didn’t do anything; cringed under the dark skies. It was too late. Could you not hear her shrieking, haunting cries of regret?

You who could only say; “Apakan daya...tangan terikat di langit, kaki berpasak di bumi, jasad tidak setanding mimpi.”

I quote what the one and only princess of Gunung Ledang said with such unbearable pain, watching her other half admitting, committing nothing;

“Kanda sambut kedatangan dinda dengan niat melukai..”

Enough said.

“Kuhinakan diriku sendiri untuk merengkuh cinta sejati. Cintamu bagai cahaya mentari yang membakar wajahku. Meski sekilas kurasakan, namun akan menjadi bekal hingga akhir zaman” - Gusti Putri Retno Dumillah
