Sebuah Dongeng di Sisi Senja

Dua orang insan manusia yang melihat dunia dengan cara pandang yang sangat berbeda. Yang satu percaya bahwa di dalam hidup semua sudah ditakdirkan dan sudah diatur oleh Tuhan. Sedangkan manusia yang lain beranggapan bahwa takdir terletak di dalam genggaman tangannya dan tergantung seberapa keras ia harus berjuang dan berusaha.

Arana Puteri dan Putera Langit.

“Aku ingin diperjuangkan. Aku ingin dihargai. Aku terlalu lelah untuk berjuang sendiri, Puteri.”

Arana terhenyak.
Setiap desir di dalam tubuhnya mencoba mengatakan sesuatu. Namun tidak ada lagi kata yang bisa terucap. Perpisahannya dengan langit terdengar begitu, mantap.

“Pada saat seperti ini aku tak lagi bisa merengek dan memohonmu untuk tetap tinggal, Puteri. Aku harus bersikap seperti layaknya seseorang dewasa yang bisa menerima keputusanmu dengan lapang dada.”

‘Aku tidak bisa memaksa orang yang kucintai untuk terus bersamaku dan berharap suatu saat nanti ia akan belajar untuk melihat cinta dari mataku. Perasaan memiliki dasar yang dalam. Dan kita semua tahu, tidak mudah merubah suatu dasar.’ Batin langit, dengan getir.

Di malam itu akhirnya ia melepaskan Arana dan terus mencoba melawan semua harapannya yang berkata Arana akan kembali padanya. Hanya butuh waktu. Langit percaya bahwa ada hal hal yang bahkan sang waktu pun tidak akan pernah bisa memudarkan, bahkan menghilangkannya. Seperti perasaan cinta. Dan waktu itu sendiri yang akan menguji cinta mereka.


Sudah hampir satu jam lamanya Arana duduk termenung di atas tempat tidurnya. Di hadapannya terpapar foto-foto dan semua barang yang mengingatkannya kepada Langit. Langit-nya. Tempat Arana biasa menyandarkan seluruh hidupnya. Arana mempercayai Langit-nya.

‘Mungkin cinta saja tidak cukup. Kalau memang tidak bisa lagi, tidak usah dipaksakan. Mungkin sudah takdirnya. Aku tidak mau menyakiti Langit lebih jauh.’

Bahkan tumpuan kata-kata tersebut pun tak mampu lagi mengukir perasaan hatinya.

‘Namun, apakah harus sesakit ini?’

Arana telah kehilangan Langit-nya. Kehilangan tempatnya berpijak dan seluruh isi alam semestanya di langit itu. Arana tidak tahu harus mulai darimana. Tetapi Ia telah membuat keputusan itu dan tidak boleh menyesalinya.

‘Semua sudah ada jalan-Nya.’


‘Arana Puteri, akankah engkau temui juga, celah kosong di relungku semenjak ketiadaanmu? Aku kehilanganmu. Aku rindu, namun terpasung janji hati.’

Memoirs of a Geisha

I recently watch Memoirs Of a Geisha for the second time and i feel very much in love with the movie so i decided to post some of my favourite quote from this movie, i hope you like them as much as i do.

"A story like mine should never be told. For my world is as forbidden as it is fragile. Without its mysteries it cannot survive. I certainly wasn't born to the life of a geisha. Like so much in my strange life, I was carried there by the current."

"Geisha needs an elegant wardrobe, just like an artists needs ink. If she is not properly dressed, than she is not a true geisha."

"Geisha are not courtesans. And we are not wives. We sell our skills, not our bodies. We create another secret world, a place only of beauty. The very word "geisha" means artist and to be a geisha is to be judged as a moving work of art."

"She paints her face to hide her face. Her eyes are deep water. It is not for Geisha to want. It is not for geisha to feel. Geisha is an artist of the floating world. She dances, she sings. She entertains you, whatever you want. The rest is shadows, the rest is secret."

"At the temple, there is a poem called "Loss" carved into the stone. It has three words, but the poet has scratched them out. You cannot read Loss, only feel it."

"We must not expect happiness. It is not something we deserve. When life goes well, it is a sudden gift; it cannot last forever."

"You cannot say to the sun, "More sun." Or to the rain, "Less rain." To a man, geisha can only be half a wife. We are the wives of nightfall. And yet, to learn kindness after so much unkindness, to understand that a little girl with more courage than she knew, would find her prayers were answered, can that not be called happiness? After all these are not the memoirs of an empress, nor of a queen. These are memoirs of another kind."

Blair & Chuck

BLAIR: “What if we need games? What if without them we are boring?

CHUCK: “We can never be boring.”

BLAIR: “You say that, but I know you. You’re Chuck Bass.”

CHUCK: “I’m not Chuck Bass, without you.”

"Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.
That way, when you criticize them,
you're a mile away and you have their shoes."

-Jack Handey

Let Go - Imogen Heap / Frou Frou

Drink up, baby down
Mmm, are you in or are you out
Leave your things behind
'cause it's all going off without you
Excuse me, too busy you're writing your tragedy
These mishaps
You bubble wrap
When you've no idea what you're like

So let go, jump in
Oh well, whatcha waiting for
It's alright
'cause there's beauty in the breakdown
So let go, just get in
Oh, it's so amazing here
It's alright
'cause there's beauty in the breakdown

It gains the more it gives
And then it rises with the fall
So hand me that remote
Can't you see that all that stuff's a sideshow

Such boundless pleasure
We've no time for later now
You can't await your own arrival
You've 20 seconds to comply

So let go, jump in
Oh well, whatcha waiting for
It's alright
'cause there's beauty in the breakdown
So let go, just get in
Oh, it's so amazing here

It's alright
'cause there's beauty in the breakdown
'cause there's beauty in the breakdown

Song Meaning:

This song tells about taking chances. Asking someone to have a courage and take a risk. Don't let the negative and downfall caught you up because currently you are blinded of what you are capable of. So take the chance, because usually when there's a breakdown or a tragedy, it's often cuase by love or something close to it and if feeling that of experiencing it, it's a beauty...

"Cause there's beauty in the breakdown", could also mean when people say 'whatever doesn't kill you, makes you stronger', just like the beauty. If there's no breaking then there's no healing, and if there's no healing then there's no learning. And if there's no learning then there's no struggle. But the struggle is a part of life....

Love, Save The Empty - Erin McCarley

Little girls don't know how to be sweet girls
Mama didn't teach me
Little boys, don't know how to treat little girls
Daddy didn't show me.

Face down, on top of your bed oh why
Did I give it up to you?
Is this how I shoot myself up high
Just high enough to get through?

Again, the false affection.
Again, we break down inside.

Love save the empty.
Love save the empty,
And save me.

Sad boy, you stare up at the sky
When no one's looking back at you.
You wear your every last disguise
You're flying, then you fall through

Again, the false attention
Again, you're breaking inside

Love save the empty
Love save the empty
Save me
Love save the empty
Love save the empty

Stars feel like knives
They tell us why we're fighting
Storm, wait outside
Oh, love, hold us together

Love, save the empty
Love, save the empty
Love, save the empty
Love, save the empty
Save me
And save me.

The song meaning :
the first verse is saying when we were younger we weren't taught how to respect the opposite sex, so we can't have a normal relationship, it's not fulfilling.
then the second verse is saying that the boy isn't happy with himself and always looking at others as if they are better than he is. So he pretends to be someone he isn't.
The chorus saying that love is the only thing that binds us and we need to cherish it and show it to everyone we can. It could save our life.
