Writing Love – Menulis Cinta

A poet by Sitok Srengenge, music and vocalization by Ubit and Dian HP, and artwork video by hellocilik.

You asked me to write down the word love
I didn’t know the first letter, nor the rest
I turned the entire alphabet upside down
But grasped merely flawed words

Don’t asked me to write down love anymore
These letters of mine, as you know,
Do not even suffice for your name

Because love is you, whom I cannot cite
Except in a heartbeat…

Kauminta aku menulis cinta
Aku tak tahu huruf apa yang pertama, dan seterusnya
Kubolak – balik seluruh abjad
Kata – kata cacat yang kudapat

Jangan lagi minta aku menulis cinta.
Huruf – hurufku, kau tahu,
Bahkan tak cukup untuk namamu

Sebab cinta adalah kau, yang tak mampu kusebut
Kecuali dengan denyut…
