To the older woman

“I’ll never date woman who’s older than me again” 

 

“huh ? why ?”

 

“Well you see, they are bossy, they’ll only see you as kid, they’ll order you around, they won’t listen to you”

 

“are we talking about older woman in general or just your mom ?”

 

“fuck you, man! I’m serious here! I’ll never do it again”

 

“heh. Here let me tell you story about a man who dates a woman older than him”

 

 

***

 

 

 

“Like every other story, this one also start with a meeting. The meeting of our particular protagonist, the man who fall in love with a woman older than him and the woman herself. You see, they are no stranger to each other, they knew each other years before their fated meeting, the meeting that changed it all. They met and from that time they can not be separated, although there was still no word about love but they knew they were way too closed to be called friend.

 

And, again, like every other story, this one is not  shy away from the power of kiss. The man finally had the courage to kiss the woman. Fortunately for him, the woman didn’t slapped him for what you could call sexual assault. She kissed her back passionately. The kiss that cleared all the doubts in the man’s mind. From that moment, he certain that he loved her.

 

So he finally said it

 

I love you” said our beloved hero

 

I love you too” said the woman he loves

 

And the rest, as they said, is history”

“what ? that’s all ? how do I know the woman is not bossy and not see the man as a kid that she need to take care of ?

 

“my story is not finished yet, young padawan,  keep listening and you’ll know”

“The woman who’s older than our guy is a lovely, adoreable, cute and beautiful girl. She may not be the most beautiful woman in the world, she may not has the most gorgeous body, she may not has the smartest functional brain, because let’s admit it, woman with that combination is not exist in our lifetime and possibly never will in anyone’s lifetime. Not until someone invented T-1000 from Terminator 2 who can change it self into many shapes and has a super brain. Watch that movie, it’s awesome. Aaaanywaay, the woman may not be the perfect woman you usually see in a story like this but for our main guy, she is. He loves everything about this woman, he loves how she smiles, he loves how she moves her body in a playful way when she listen to music, he loves her jokes, he loves her everything and when he see something he didn’t like, he would talk to her about it and this is when I say you are wrong, she would listen to what he said and then they would talk about it, trying to find way out by talking their heart content about the problem, like how every problem should be solved by every couple in this world. Or he would try to adapt to it, but first he would talk to her first because he knows that she would listen.

 

Sure, some of the time, she would ask his man to do this and that but it usually just a small thing even when it was a big thing, it was always for the good of them not just herself and again, when he doesn’t like what she asked, they would talk rationally. The woman won’t dominate the conversation just because she’s older, they would talk without concerning their age, what their concern is they love each other. So they talk like how two people that love each other talk”

“that woman sounds really lovely.. what’s the age difference between them ?”

 

“hmmm let’s count.. about a year.. the woman was born 9 months earlier than the man”

 

“soooo, you are saying that the woman is only 9 months older than the man ?”

 

“but the year they were born are different, though”

 

“THEY ARE STILL BASICALLY THE SAME AGE, DAMMIT ! WHAT I MEAN IS WOMAN THAT ARE MUCH OLDER THAN YOU, LIKE 5 TO 10 YEARS OLDER !”

 

“Well, it’s your fault for not saying it more clear. Anyway today is the day that woman is officialy get older than the man. Let’s say happy birthday to her”

 

“how do you know that ?!”

 

“of course I know it, that woman is my wife”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy birthday to the woman whose face is the first thing I see every morning, I adore you and I love you.

The Labours of Hernandez – prologue –

Matahari bersinar terang di langit biru cerah, awan-awan beringingan pelan bergerak mengikuti arah angin yang berhembus lembut. Angin itu juga lah yang meniup rambut segerombolan pria berseragam sekolah yang tengah berkumpul di sebuah lapangan, membentuk lingkaran besar mengelilingi tontonan di depan mata mereka. Para penonton ini terdiam, menahan nafas melihat apa yang saksikan. Dua orang pria yang juga berseragam saling bertukar pukulan, tendangan atau bahkan hantaman kepala.

“Heaaahh!!” Teriak salah satu dari mereka sambil melayangkan kepalan tangan kanannya. Pemuda itu memiliki tubuh yang besar, gendut seperti babi pemalas, dengan kepala botak, kulit berwarna hitam dan wajah yang tidak bisa dibilang tampan, dia terlihat seperti jin. Tidak heran jika teman-temannya memanggilnya Toma yang diambil dari jin tomang.

Sementara itu target pukulan Toma, pemuda yang berbadan jauh lebih kecil darinya, bergerak menghindar ke arah kiri dan disaat yang bersamaan mengarahkan tinjunya mulut Toma. Sebuah pukulan balasan yang cepat membuat Toma tidak sempat bereaksi sehingga Toma pun terdorong mundur dengan darah di sekeliling mulutnya akibat hantaman telak yang diterimanya. Tidak mau menyia-nyiakan kesempatan, sang lawan langsung meloncat ke depan wajah Toma lalu menganyunkan kaki kanannya, menendang telak pelipis Toma yang masih tercengang akibat pukulan sebelumnya. Suara benturan antara sepatu si penendang dan pelipis Toma terdengar nyaring membuat beberapa penonton yang menyaksikan perkelahian itu mengeluarkan ekspresi wajah kesakitan seakan mereka yang terkena tendangan. Satu orang dari mereka langsung berlari ke arah perkelahian begitu melihat Toma terjatuh lemas, diikuti dengan beberapa orang lain yang juga berlari ke arah Toma, mengecek kondisinya yang tak sadarkan diri. Tidak ada yang menghiraukan lawan dari Toma, sang pemenang hanya memperhatikan orang-orang yang berusaha menyadarkan Toma sambil membersihkan seragamnya yang kotor sehabis berkelahi. Pemuda itu memalingkan badannya dan berjalan meninggalkan lawannya yang sudah berhasil dikalahkannya. Penonton segera memberi jalan kepada pria itu, pria yang kini sedang tersenyum lebar dengan congkaknya karena berhasil mengalahkan orang terkuat di angkatannya. Pria itu bernama Hernandez.

Aku merindukanmu

Di sini hujan lagi dan entah ada hubungannya atau tidak, aku merindukan kamu. Lagi.

Iya, aku merindukanmu meskipun baru beberapa jam yang lalu tangan ini melepasmu.

Aku merindukanmu, seperti tanah merah yang selalu merindukan air agar tetap liat.

Aku merindukanmu, seperti rumput hijau yang selalu merindukan sinar sang surya

Aku merindukanmu, seperti manusia yang selalu rindu akan pelangi indah sehabis hujan.

Aku merindukanmu, seperti laut yang selalu rindu akan sinar rembulan.

Aku merindukanmu, seperti kamu merindukanku

Hari ke-18 : Langit Malam

Wahai langit malam, jadikanlah aku mimpi yang menghiasi di setiap tidurnya, meskipun ketika pagi datang, aku akan terlupa

Wahai langit malam, jadikan lah aku angin sepoi sepoi ketika dia terlelah, meskipun aku tau aku hanya akan jadi angin lalu

Wahai langit malam, jadikan lah aku segelas minuman hangat untuk menghangat dia ketika hujan datang, meskipun aku tau aku akan segera habis dan terlupakan

Wahai langit malam, jadikan lah aku bintang agar aku bisa menatapnya ketika dia melihatmu, meskipun aku tau aku mungkin tak terlihat karena cahaya sang bulan

Wahai langit malam, jadikan lah aku debu dibawah cerminnya,agar aku selalu bisa melihat senyumnya walau itu tak pernah untukku..

Hari ke-17 : Would You ?

If I hugged you,
would you never let go?
If I kissed you,
would you cherish that moment?
If I reached for your hand,
would you take mine gently?
If I needed a shoulder,
would you let me cry on yours?
If I needed to talk,
would you really listen?
If I needed to scream,
would you do it with me?
If I needed to go,
would you come with me?
If I fell for you,
would you catch me?
or just let me hit the pavement?
