Whatever Remains

The remnants of the night tend to linger in my clothes;

the scent of liquor won’t leave my vest,
nor will that girl’s perfume, who was trying her best
my favorite shirt still smells of cigarette smoke,
or the drunken breath of the older bloke
the unsynchronised beats of the music failed to entice me
no sweat seeped into my skirt, I didn’t set myself free
nor did I get lost in the ogling man’s eyes,
turning him down was his most unpleasant surprise
I didn’t come close to anyone’s lips,
that reeked of mistakes and unfortunate slips
I went home with a friend, who remained by my side
kissed him good night, let everything else slide

And the following morning, when only memories remain
I can wash out the proof of their existence, though to me, it’s all the same
Because at least I can make all these disappear,
while you, I cannot
you are always right here
in my mind, never to be forgot

hujan dan memori tentangnya

pick up line apa yang sering dipakai orang setelah memperkenalkan nama?

cuaca?

sedikit kuno, tipe yang kedahulu-dahuluan.

cuaca hari ini cerah

cuaca hari ini panas

cuaca hari ini berangin

cuaca hari ini hujan

dari sekian banyak cuaca yang ada hanya satu yang selalu diingat.

sedikit kuno, tapi akuilah kalau kalian semua lebih mengingat hujan.

aku tak katakan kalian semua suka hujan.

bacalah sekali lagi.

“mengingat hujan”

apa yang membuat hujan selalu berkesan?

langit menjadi kelabu.

suara tetesan airnya berebut beradu dengan tanah menimbulkan bunyi

riuh.

aromanya tanah mengingatkan kita dari mana manusia berasal.

latar yang baik sekali untuk berfikir, merenung, dan memutar kembali

memori.

ya hujan berkesan karena ia membawa kenangan bersamanya.

seperti saat kita kecil, berlarian di tengah hujan setengah telanjang

tanpa takut basah, sakit, atau hewan menggigit.

seperti secangkir teh susu hangat buatan nenek. diminum bersama di

beranda rumah, menghangatkan diri di tengah dingin hujan, bercerita.

atau seperti saat pertama kali di antar pulang oleh orang yang kau

suka, berdua di atas motor, tertawa geli karena basah.

ada pula cerita duka.

saat kau kehilangan orang yang kau cintai untuk selama-lamanya.

kemudian hujan turun, seakan-akan mewakili tangisan yang kau tahan.

saat hujan turun dan memori terkenang kembali, namun tak dapat kau

ulangi. karna memang sudah berlalu, atau karna sudah tak mampu.

semua orang lebih mengingat hujan.

semua orang punya kenangan tentang hujan.

kenangan apa yang kau punya?

andai aku boleh tahu.

pick up line what is commonly used in people after the introduction of the name?

weather?

a little old-fashioned, the kind kedahulu-dahuluan.

sunny weather today

hot weather today

windy weather today

rainy weather today

of the many weather there is only one who is always remembered.

a little old fashioned, but admit that you guys better remember the rain.

I did not tell you all like rain.

read it again.

“Considering the rain”

What makes the rain is always memorable?

the sky became gray.

the sound of water droplets collide with the ground scrambling rise to noise

boisterous.

soil aroma reminds us of where humans came from.

excellent background to think, ponder, and roll back

memory.

Yes rain memorable because it brings the memories with him.

like when we were kids, running around half-naked in the rain

without fear of wet, sore, or an animal bite.

like a cup of warm milk tea grandma. taken together in

porch, warming themselves in the cold rain, storytelling.

or like the first time in inter home by the person you

love, both on the bike, laughing as wet.

there is also a story of grief.

when you lose the person you love forever.

then it rains, as if representing cry you hold.

when it rains and back fond memory, but you can not

repeat. because it is already gone, or because hardly afford.

all the more considering the rain.

everyone has memories of rain.

What memories do you have?

if I may know.
