Puisi Cinta

Cinta Di Sudut Mentari

Ciptaan : Pratiwi Tirta Sari 

Dari arah timur …
Mentari memunculkan sinar keemasannya…
Seakan tersenyum geli
Melihat perasaanku yang tak karuan ini.

Ku menatap perasaanku dengan mata hatiku
Hatiku yang terdalam mengatakan….
Kamulah yang ku inginkan….

Ku ingin mencintaimu
Tapi bukan karena keegoisanku
Ku ingin menyayangimu
Tapi bukan sebatas itu…

Hatiku terpuruk pilu
Akankah ada yang terluka bila aku mencintaimu….?????
Aku pun tak tahu….

Perasaan ini tak bisa ku tampakkan
Yang ku tahu Tuhan mengerti perasaan ini
Cintaku akan tetap bertahta
Bersama mentari yang bersinar di sudut langit…..

Just stop for a minute and smile 

Why is everybody so serious ?

Acting so damn mysterious

You got your shades on your eyes and your heels so high

That you can't even have a good time

Everybody look to their left

Everybody look to their right

Can you feel that ? Yeah

We'll pay them with love tonight

It's not about the money, money, money

We don't need your money, money, money

We just wanna make the world dance 

Forget about the price tag
