It’s not a Game, Actually

One day we played a silly game. You asked me to write down 3 names of friends and 3 songs.

“Are you sure with your answer?”

“Sure. Then what? What does this game mean?”

“The first song is for the first name.”

Your name and I’m All Out of Love from Air Supply were on my top list. The clock stopped.

“Don’t get me wrong yaa. It’s only a game, right?” I laughed to break the ice.

“Of course.”

“Now your turn. Ah noo, you already know the rule.”

“That’s fine.”

“Hii kok gitu? Curaang.” I was curious, actually.

You wrote my name and I Try form Macy Gray.

“What song is this?”

“Don’t you know? It’s always played on Insomnia.”

“I try to say goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it it’s clear
My world crumbles when you are not near”

“That’s the refrain.” You looked deep in me.

“So don’t go away, then. Biar nggak tercekik, tersandung, dan hancur.” I said.

You smiled.
