It hurts.
Saya melesak semakin dalam bersama setiap kata yang kamu ucapkan. Ternyata pertemuan ini sama sekali tidak menyenangkan. Kenapa kamu selalu kembali di saat saya sudah merasa baik-baik saja sendirian?

Saya muak.
Cerita ini selalu berulang dengan akhir yang berbeda setiap kalinya, tetapi tidak pernah berakhir sesuai dengan apa yang saya inginkan. Episode ini semakin lama menjadi semakin tidak lucu.

Saya capek.

Kemudian getar itu mengalihkan perhatian saya dari duniamu yang tidak pernah bisa saya mengerti (karena saya tidak pernah sungguh-sungguh ada di dalamnya).

“I’m at Kafe Pisa. Wish you were here; helping me with this yummy bella-ritz.”

Saya terharu. Bukan karena getar itu hadir ketika saya sedang merasa sedemikian terpuruk. Bukan pula karena bella-ritz ternyata masih ada setelah sekian lama. Tetapi karena dia ingat.

Inilah satu-satunya dunia yang saya pahami. Dan kamu tidak ada di sana.

Do you often find yourself feeling guilty about taking some time to rest? "We all need rest, not because it makes us more productive at our jobs, but because it makes us happier, healthier, more well-rounded people," wrote Homan.

While most of us think of the past as something that happens behind us and the future lies ahead of us, for the Aymara people, it's the other way around. The Aymara people see the past as something that lies ahead of us, and the future as something that lies behind us.
