Monday Breakfast

Assalamualaikum

As for this morning, nothing was more disappointing than tasting your own cooking,
That was extremely salty when you're hungry. When you thought it would taste just fine.
Guess that I'd hurt my head for consuming too much salt in the morning.

I remember my friends from back then when I was 12.
I did spend years before 2010 with them, but the sight of them in 2010 was the most vivid one that I could be picturing right now.
We were in that pink uniform. I could be myself and was all crazy, so were you.

We would have Safwan as our big brother. And Aisyah as my sparring partner.
And Hajar that looked like marshmallow.
And the race between the whole classmates (sometimes I was excluded) and Ain Zayani to find meaning of words in the Kamus Dewan. I remember one time when Aiman won once.

The wasted time of my after-school moments, sometimes to see you or bump into you.
The wasted excitements and extra wide smiles, sometimes when we happened to walk pass each other.

No…

Assalamualaikum

Merentasi hari dan waktu seperti hari-hari yang lalu,
Seperti waktu lalu, syukur.

Kau tahu, kadang wajah kau turut terpacul sama seiring dengan setiap lagu dia dendangkan.
Enak didengar, walau tidak bisa aku iring suaraku bersama-sama rentaknya.

Lambakan pameran aku lihat, imbau kembali hari itu.
Tidaklah sebentar, berjam juga aku hirup udara di sana.
Tidaklah pudar, malah kadang makin berwarna.
Namun tidaklah ingin aku ulang. Bikin sengsara.

Namun setiap apa yang membuatkan kau, kau sering menari di minda.
Aku serabut. Kini berhari-hari telah berlalu kau tiba-tiba menyepi.
Tertanya aku, adakah kau baik-baik saja? Kau sihat?

Aku harap kau sentiasa baik.

Termimpi-mimpi aku. Mungkin kerana aku sering fikir.
Apalah, kata mahu tinggal-tinggalkan. Tapi kau juga tahu bukan, untuk tinggal itu tidak pernah senang. Apatah kau. Jujur aku akui susah.

Setiap rasa yang tidak dapat aku rasa. Setiap lena yang tidak dapat aku lena pada awalnya.
Setiap waktu aku rasa tidak menentu, apa…
