yang tak diketahui-nya

“It is a grave injustice to a child or adult to insist that they stop crying. One can comfort a person who is crying which enables him to relax and makes further crying unnecessary; but to humiliate a crying child is to increase his pain, and augment his rigidity. We stop other people from crying because we cannot stand the sounds and movements of their bodies. It threatens our own rigidity. It induces similar feelings in ourselves which we dare not express and it evokes a resonance in our own bodies which we resist.”
― Alexander Lowen, The Voice of the Body

dia menangis.
air matanya tidak terlihat.

sayapnya patah.
sayap-sayap yang tak berwujud.

hatinya patah.

tapi di depanmu,
dia hanya tersenyum dan tidak mengeluh.
