I Saw Mine

By Miracle Worker When you were born, I was the happiest man alive. But I was also nervous. I was scared of the fact that I’m about to carry a whole lot of responsibilities from now on. Being a father is no easy task, or so I was told. I’m known by people as one […]

Intro

‘Qisa, jom main bola’ ‘Qisa, kau nak satu team dengan aku tak?” ‘Qisa, esok kita main lagi tau’   Yeah! Jarang masuk ke dalam cuping telinga ku perkataan-perkataan sebegini. Dalam fikiranku, mereka hanya akan menganggap aku ini hanya seorang budak mentah yang tidak menpunyai apa-apa kelebihan yang boleh mereka mengambil manfaat sama. Pada aku, mereka […]

Tunggu

Hari ini giliran aku untuk bertugas sebagai bilal di masjid. Usai solat Subuh pagi tadi, aku hanya mampu untuk bersihkan ruang solat ala kadar sahaja. Maklumlah, yang ada cuma aku dan Imam bertugas di masjid. Jemaah juga dah mula berkurang sejak minggu lalu. Selepas jumlah kes positif naik mendadak awal Mac, aku dah agak bilangan […]

jiwa tempat berpulang

Pernah suatu masa kita masih terlalu dangkal untuk memaham dunia, kita menyangka hanya rumah beralamat itu tempat untuk berpulang. Mungkin kerana kita sudah terlalu lama menetap di dalamnya, mungkin kerana kita sudah selesa menghirup udaranya. Pernah seorang teman yang berasal dari negeri Che Siti Wan Kembang berkata dalam canda, bahawa walaupun ibunya berada di ibu […]

White Room

May wakes up in a white room.  She blinks the sleepiness away and sits up. Taking in her surroundings, everything she can see is white. From the walls, empty of any decoration nor furnitures, to her bed sheets and blanket and even the clothes she has on her. She cannot remember how she got here, […]

Mamihlapinatapai

Maksud Mamihlapinatapai: Menurut definisi dari Internet (dan setelah diterjemahkan kepada bahasa Melayu oleh seorang penulis jalanan separuh masa yang kini berada di usia senja) boleh disimpulkan sebagai “suatu pandangan di antara dua insan, di mana kedua insan ini mengharapkan salah seorang daripada mereka untuk bertindak terhadap sesuatu yang mereka berdua inginkan, tetapi masing-masing tidak mahu […]

The Woman in Black

I’m being watched. Ever since I got home from… I can’t escape the constant surveillance, or something more sinister than that. Stalked. Yes, maybe that is a more correct term to use. Every movement made, every word uttered, every expression produced are under intense scrutiny of that woman in black. But my mother and my […]

long live ARIA’S

“You call this music?” Uh-huh. Ariz dengan pen di tangan, di tengah-tengah strokesnya selamba bertanya. “Uh-huh.” Aria tenang menyiapkan solekan mata di hadapan cermin di ruang tamu. “It’s MY music, abang.” Sengih.  Aria menentang mata yang bertanya tanpa insurans. Pedih. I wish my heart didn’t feel like it was shattering inside of me. Solekan mata […]

Roses

Mrs. Stevenson was outside of her house and her old self was struggling to carry sacks of soil into her back garden. George, playing the good neighbour, stopped in the middle of his evening jog to give her a hand.  “These just came?” George asked while putting the sacks into a wheelbarrow, his voice strained […]

Fix Me

I want to write something, I want to write again. But my words are always tainted with the memories of you; the memories of us. Everything from colours to weathers, flowers and places, my mind seems to enjoy wandering back to a memory – instead of writing something that doesn’t end with, “Why’d you have […]

CONFUSED

I asked you.. did you give up on us, on our friendship? you said you didn’t. But you were a little a quieter lately. No more jokes no more calls no more fun anymore. I told you again and again, i want us to be happy, to have a normal conversation with anyone. you said […]

sad short story

I was 10 when my teacher asked us to write a short story about our best friend. I looked at mine and smiled. I then wrote everything I knew about him. Once we’re done the teacher asked for volunteers to read our story out loud. My best friend went first. It was not about me. […]

kamu yang tak pasti

Masa lalu tidak boleh diubah. Titik. ‘Kalau’ sepatutnya tidak perlu digunakan untuk hal-hal yang sudah berlalu kerana ia membuang waktu dan memuruk kesal. ‘Kalau’ adahal kebarangkalian yang seharusnya dihidupkan maka gunakan ia sebaiknya untuk menciptakan keadaan yang lebih baik. ‘Kalau’ seharusnya menjadi cerminan usaha bukan kata-kata kesal percuma. Dalam kehidupan yang tidak boleh diputar saat […]

biskut marie

Hanis meletak kembali potongan kek batik yang baru segigit dimakan. Air mukanya tampak kecewa. “Tak sedap jugak?” Najua merenungnya tak percaya. Sesuap kek batik laju memasuki mulutnya.“Tak sama.” Hanis mencebik dengan wajah kelat. Mocha ais dikacau perlahan sebelum disedut melepasi kerongkong. Rasa nyaman apabila rasa manis kek batik dapat dibilas dengan kelat kopi mocha. Amaranth- […]
