Cover Me Up

I felt that way,
So I changed the colour of my hair.
I straightened it, too.
Then I outlined my eyes,
And painted my lips-
Just to cover me up.
It's all so fake,
None of it's me,
I'm hiding everything natural that I have,
I'm hiding deep under these covers.

Uncover Me

I spent so much time covering it up,
but now it's all showing through.
As I step into the warm water,
lay down and submerge my hair,
it becomes curly once more.
The colour at my eyes and my lips
have washed away-
my clothes are gone too.
Laying in the bath
I glance at the large mirror opposite,
this is me, no covers.

Queen of Hearts

Stabbed in the back,
Once
Twice 
Thrice…
…bleeding, dying.
Who’s the culprit?
One,
Two
Or three?
…we’ll never know
Who took the last stab, 
Killing the Queen of Hearts
Who now lies bleeding…
(and hidden in the darkness, 
even the Queen of Hearts can cry…)

People say 'money is everything', I couldn't agree more. 

When I first learned about this competition, my mind wandered on how to relate a bank and money to art the best possible way. Such a cliché to just paint a man flashing his wealth or to paint another man showing off his money but talking about man generally. 

I realized one important thing, if money is just as important as what we claimed then what about our heart? Known as the hardest working muscle. The veins, the arteries and the capillaries working together tirelessly from the moment it begins beating without ever pausing to rest. Now that's wealth. 

Just like a bank, such an important institution, circulate 'blood' into our wallet and community. Be where you are, you have your heart with you for you to breathe, same goes to banking institution that we need to survive day in and day out.

I cut myself, but didn't notice
Picking up the shards of glass,
The ones that fell from your madness
...Such madness always lasts.

So I bleed onto the paper,
Along with the sharp stinging of my pain,
Now falling upon that surface
are my tears just like the rain.

Now I'll go and clean up the cut
Just so no one can see,
Hiding the stitches, this scars from you
it's nothing new- there are Band-aids all over me.

Definition – Trance

1. a half-conscious state, seemingly between sleeping and waking, in which ability to function voluntarily may be suspended.
2. a dazed or bewildered condition.
3. a state of complete mental absorption or deep musing.
4. an unconscious, cataleptic, or hypnotic condition.
5. Spiritualism . a temporary state in which a medium, with suspension of personal consciousness, is controlled by an intelligence from without and used as a means of communication, as from the dead.

Description : 

Ibu Mertuaku (My Mother-in-Law) is a 1962 Malaysian film directed by and starring Malaysian silver-screen legend P. Ramlee. The film's story revolves around the tragic love affair between Kassim Selamat, a poor musician, and Sabariah, the only daughter of a wealthy woman. 

The movie is notable in that the opening act starts out as a light-hearted romantic comedy, but at the 30 minute mark turns into a dramatic tragedy. 

Like a number of P. Ramlee's works, the film criticizes the unofficial caste system that separates the wealthy from the poor. 

This film is considered a Malaysian classic, and is remembered for the song "Di Mana Kan Ku Cari Ganti" and a famous eye-stabbing scene during the film's climax.

Wings of Butterfly

I have these wings
Here affixed upon my back
And yet try hard as one might
Still, they remain immobile. 

But then, I found you, 
My dearest butterfly…

And words cannot explain 
How my wings flutter in excitement- 
Without you, I am inert:
Motionless, still…lifeless…

So I wonder…
And I fear, 

What if my colours are too dreary
these shades of monotone hues
that have rejected so many others?

And why, I can’t help but think,
Were your vivid eyes drawn 
to these over-thrashed wings?

Created in pain,
a tear falls down her cheek... 
He catches it and whispers…
‘Because, my dearest butterfly…
I love such wings…’

Percaturan Murka dan Cinta

Sejurus minda diterjah,
Menyerlah suatu sejarah,
Dari palitan warna indah,
Hitam, putih dan merah.

Cerita kau, aku dan dia,
Melaung kata minda,
Mendesah rasa jiwa,
Satu kisah yang berbeda.

Kau mengerah lagi pemarah,
Bikin aku tak tentu arah,
Dan dia terus hilang arah,
Akhiran ditakdir pasrah.

Madness of Love

I fear I have little strength 
to open my eyes to a new day.
I'll wake without you there
...such an occurrence 
which pains be
beyond belief.

I fear the week to come, 
knowing I'll have 
no contact with you.
Each day seems like 
a petty excuse in my life,
just a waiting-time
until I see you.

I can't explain this fear I have
of living this life without you;
I fear these thoughts in my head
that I'm unable to comprehend.

I can't put it into words, 
I can't put it into thoughts... 
I'm unable to voice it-- 
though it's so CLEAR to me.

None can understand.
None can understand, 

if I am unable to tell them what they must understand.
Perhaps love does make a person crazy..
...for this hidden fear which surfaces, 
of being without you...
...oh how I miss you...
sends me into a madness beyond all cure.

Butterfly Wishes

Yesterday a butterfly
Came floating gently through the sky.
He soared up through the atmosphere
Then drifted close enough to hear.

I said, "I'd love to fly with you
And sail around the way you do.
It looks like it would be such fun
To fly up toward the summer sun.

But I have not your graceful charm.
I haven't wings, just these two arms.
I've been designed to walk around.
My human feet must touch the ground.

Then magically he spoke to me
and told me what his wish would be.

He said, "What I'd love most to do
Is walk upon God's Earth with you,
To squish it's mud between my toes
Or touch my finger to my nose.

I'd love just once to walk around
With human feet to touch the ground,
But I have not two legs that swing,
I haven't arms, just these two wings."

And so we went our separate ways
In wonder and surprise.
For we'd both seen God's precious gifts
Through someone else's eyes.

Purple Rain”

I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted one time to see you laughing
I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain

I never wanted to be your weekend lover
I only wanted to be some kind of friend, hey
Baby, I could never steal you from another
It's such a shame our friendship had to end

Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you bathing in the purple rain
Purple rain, purple rain
I only wanted to see you underneath the purple rain

Honey, I know, I know, I know times are changin'
It's time we all reach out for something new, that means you too
You say you want a leader, but you can't seem to make up your mind
And I think you better close it and let me guide you to the purple rain

If you know what I'm singin' about up here, come on raise your hand
I only want to see you, only want to see you in the purple rain

I don't mind if you wanna stay,
With that smile upon your face,
Hang around for a little while,
Please don't drive away even for a mile.

I don't mind if you are far away
I’ll be waiting for you anyway,
Under the sky of sunshine o rain,
I know ‘m gonna be in your arms again.

Different continents,
Its not a thing.
Coz i know we’ll be okay.
Endless borders, countless days,
Our love will pave the way.

I’ll be your wall,
For you to lean on,
When you fall just try to hold on,
I’ll be back in your arms,
Together we’ll always be

"Kiss From A Rose"

There used to be a graying tower alone on the sea.
You became the light on the dark side of me.
Love remained a drug that's the high and not the pill.

But did you know, That when it snows,
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen.

Baby, I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray.
Ooh, The more I get of you, The stranger it feels, yeah.
And now that your rose is in bloom, 
A light hits the gloom on the gray.

There is so much a man can tell you, so much he can say.
You remain, My power, my pleasure, my pain, baby
To me you're like a growing addiction that I can't deny.
Won't you tell me is that healthy, baby?

I've been kissed by a rose
I've been kissed by a rose on the gray,
And if I should fall along the way.

Materialistic world. 

You are discussing about the posh restaurants down the road you went last night on your fancy sports car, those expensive art collection that you got from your trusted bidder, the so-called extravaganza travelling around the world where the butler will salute you upon entering their V.I.P lounges. You buy whatever money can throw you. 

Your child waking up to their nanny’s face, you and your wife going for a business trip and weekends in the meeting room, you can’t even remember when you last had your dinner with your parents. You are living a fast and busy life in the world of elite society. You laugh and you smile. 

But is that all that you have..? Where’s the love part? We don’t have to wait for the day emptiness gently pats our back and whispers - life without love is life n.o.t.h.i.n.g.

Hidden Memories

I packed you away 
In a little cardboard box
Hidden under my bed 
And you fit most perfectly
Just that way… Hidden from view.

…Yet always silently there…

I hid you-
You and your smiles,
Your gifts, and memories…
Everything about you.
Because I couldn’t take it…
I couldn’t take you anymore.
It hurt too much
So stay hidden In your cardboard box,
And perhaps you’ll fade…


Why kid myself?
I know you’re there…
I can feel your contents drawing me in
Drawing me closer to you.
But some memories haunt me-
Memories of you… Of ‘us’.

You rattle in your confined space
Singing in the night,
Pleading to me as I dream
To open you up, and look inside…
But I can’t do that… I won’t…
And slowly your song fades…
For there are other songs…
Other singers

Those who dream with me.

Meet Me in Summer?

This is what I look like today
And I'm trying not to pull out my hair
I'm trying hard to grow it
But I'm far too shy to show it back there

That's probably why I like wearing hats
There's no denying, I'm deferring the facts
Avoiding confrontation
Lacks tact in a situation
Behind every line is a lesson yet to learn

But if you ask me
The feeling that I'm feeling is overwhelming
And oh, it goes to show
I've so much to know

I wrote this for my prettiest friend
But while trying not to prove that I care
I was trying not to make all my moves in one motion 
And scare her away

She can't see she's making me crazy now
I don't believe she knows she's amazing how
She has me holding my breathe
So I'd never guess 
That I'm a none such unsuitable, 
Suitor for her?

And if you ask me
The feeling that I'm feeling is complimentary
And oh, it goes to show
The moral of the story is boy loves girl
And so on but the way that it unfolds 
Is yet to be told

I know that I should be brave
Even pretty can be seen by the blind
I know that I cannot wait until the day we finally learn 
How to find each other redefining open minds

And if you ask me
The feeling that I'm feeling is overjoyed
And it's golden, it goes to show then
The ending of this song should be left alone
And so on, 'cause the way it unfolds 
Is yet to be told

Definition : A hoax is a deliberately fabricated falsehood made to masquerade as truth. It is distinguishable from errors in observation or judgment.

I was down and sad about the news I saw and heard that day. The accusation, the allocation of blames and loyalty. Some I know it’s true but some is just too painful to ignore or to swallow. It hurts and scarred me.

Felt betrayed, annoyed and disgusted with what I heard, I poured all the anger, sadness, resentment and hatred on canvas. And the prose below best describes the event and what I felt at that particular moment. As for now, I let go and let God.

Kawan kah itu?

Kata, kata, kata dan kata lagi,
Mengatalah kau selagi kau boleh berkata-kata.
Tuduh, tuduh, tuduh dan tuduh lagi,
Jangan menuduh hingga dituduh pula.
Hina, hina, hina dan hina lagi,
Jangan menghina hingga dihina nanti.

Aku tahu hal kau, kau dan kau,
Bukan dari yang lain,
Bukan dari yang tak tahu,
Tapi dari kau, kau dan kau juga.

Dan yang sadisnya,
Aku juga tahu,
Bahawa kau, kau dan kau,
Berkata tentang aku.

Berdesas, berdesis,
Ke sana, ke sini,
Menjaja cerita,
Yang tak ternilai.

Kerana yang paling galak bercerita itu,
Paling ramai pengikutnya.

Mungkin bernilai sepotong janji,
Untuk tidak dikongsi dengan yang lain,
Mungkin bernilai kosong,
Untuk mengisi suasana hening,
Mungkin bernilai besar,
Untuk mendapat perhatian.

Yang pasti,
Yang di atas sana,
Lebih mengetahui nilainya,
Untuk kau, kau dan kau bayar suatu hari nanti,
Sama ada di sini – yang lebih cepat dan berat,
Atau pun di sana – yang aku pun tak pasti apa jumlah yang tepat!

"He That Believeth Shall Not Make Haste“

The aloes grow upon the sand,
The aloes thirst with parching heat;
Year after year they waiting stand,
Lonely and calm, and front the beat
Of desert winds; and still a sweet
And subtle voice thrills all their veins:
"Great patience wins; it still remains,
After a century of pains,
To you to bloom and be complete."

I grow upon a thorny waste;
Hot noontide lies on all the way,
And with its scorching breath makes haste
Each freshening dawn to burn and slay,
Yet patiently I bide and stay:
Knowing the secret of my fate,
The hour of bloom, dear God, I wait,
Come when it will, or soon or late,
A hundred years are but a day.

You couldn't keep your hands to yourself

I looked at your face I saw that all the love had died
I saw that we had forgotten to take the time
I, I saw that you couldn't care less about what you do
Couldn't care less about the lies
You couldn't find the time to cry

We forgot about love
We forgot about faith
We forgot about trust
We forgot about us

You said that you had said all that you had to say
You said baby it's the end of the day
And we gave a lot but it wasn't enough
We got so tired that we just gave up

We didn't respect it
We went and neglected it
We didn't deserve it
But I never expected this

Our love floated out the window
Our love floated out the back door
Our love floated up in the sky to heaven
It's part of a plan
It's back in God's hands
Back in God's hands

It didn't last
It's a thing of the past
Oh we didn't understand
Just what we had
Oh I want it back
Oh just what we had

simpan pegang seranah caci
aku simpan seranahmu dalam liang telinga
dengan harap yang aku gunungkan dari sebutir zarah hati,
semoga diciptakan tuhan suatu hari nanti untuk aku
ambilkan semula dan paksa kau jilat kembali.

aku pegang cacianmu dalam salur kerongkong
dengan mimpi yang aku campingkan dari secebis ngilu,
semoga dikenankan tuhan suatu hari nanti untuk engkau
dapatkan semula dan kunyah setiap satu persatu.

kerana bahasamu yang kau pinjam dari iblis itu,
terlalu indah bunyinya sehinggakan aku mahu sekali
simpankan dan pegangkan sehingga suatu masa
yang kau jilat dan kunyahkan dengan hina.

kerana aku tidak reti untuk mati,
semata mata untuk lidah yang kau sewa dari neraka.

kerana aku tidak akan mahu mati,
selagi yang benar tidak memberi aku syurga.

Hidden Memories

I packed you away,
In a little cardboard box
Hidden under my bed
And you fit most perfectly,
Just that way,
Hidden from view…
…Yet always silently there…
I hid you-
You and your smiles,
Your gifts, and memories…
Everything about you.
Because I couldn’t take it…
I couldn’t take you anymore.
It hurt too much
So stay hidden in your cardboard box,
And perhaps you’ll fade…


Why kid myself?
I know you’re there…
I can feel your contents drawing me in
Drawing me closer to you.
But some memories haunt me-
Memories of you…
Of ‘us’.
You rattle in your confined space
Singing in the night,
Pleading to me as I dream
To open you up, and look inside…
But I can’t do that… I won’t…
And slowly your song fades…
For there are other songs…
Other singers
Those who dream with me.

Mengembara kecewa membawa rintihan rasa semalam
Matahari harapan berlabuh di banjaran mimpi semasa
Beralun rumput nan panjang di bukit tanpa pohonan
Mengalir nanah di kali, mengeruh banjir tengkujuh

Apakan ertinya itu bagai putus cinta
Nyatakan biarku membantu memikul bebanmu
Langkahmu baru bermula mengapa nafsu meronta
Pandanglah batu di jalan, berhati bila melangkah

Engkau pun tahu
Aku pun tahu
Beginilah kita
Ikut rasa binasa

Waktu pintumu ku buka setengah
gemersik menikam mengalun suara
ku tinjau sejenak untuk periksa
bergema di Lembah Inderaloka

Suaramu membisik merdu di kalbu
...memanggilku

Kubuka sepenuh pintu dayamu
dan melangkah masuk kedalam taman mu
aku tak pasti apa akan berlaku
kalau aku ditangkap pengawalmu

Mungkin aku akan terkorban
...dalam merinduimu

Tapi kenapa kau hadir saja
dalam setiap mimpi-mimpiku
dan meninggalkan kunci dan peta
kalau aku kau tak ingini

Kasih, siapa aku di sisimu
kini ku berada dalam taman mu
tiada aku takut akan kematian
kerana hidup dan mati sama untukku
telah kulalui, berulang kali

Keindahan taman mu tiada bermakna
jika wajahmu tidak kutemui
biar ku terlantar dimamah waktu
aku tetap akan menunggumu

Kasih, siapa aku di sisimu
ku pakukan kakiku ke tanahmu
biar berdarah menjadi sungai
agar tak bisa dicabut oleh sesiapa
yang mahu menghalau ku keluar...!
