When you know you don't want it to start

Beliau memandang kepadaku dan berkata, "oh yeah, I've heard about you before. You seemed like a phat guy."

"What was that?" aku bertanya kepadanya dalam keadaan keliru.

"Don't get me wrong, phat spelled with a p-h." beliau menjelaskan.

"I heard you right, its just that I'm doubting your vocabulary right now." aku menjawap.

Kami tidak berkata apa-apa kepada masing-masing selepas itu.

100m Dash

Bunyi tembakan pistol menandakan permulaan,
setiap mereka berlari mencengkam tanah sepantas mungkin,
termasuk aku.

Sorakan sekeliling menambahkan semangat untuk berlari,
lebih pantas, lebih laju, goyangan kaki melampaui hukum fizik.

Lama-kelamaan semuanya semakin pudar,
sorakan sekeliling, cahaya terpancar dari tubuh badan mereka yang lain,
dan juga persekitaran sekeliling.

Aku menahan kakiku dari melangkah kehadapan,
dan berhenti.

Aku berhenti bukan kerna ingin mengalah,
aku berhenti untuk kewarasan.

1. Where breakfast are made.


I hit my head on the floor as I now realize that it was a somewhat beautiful nightmare. I looked at the clock, it was 5 a.m. I was pissed at the sight of a very early morning. Well, any sight of morning to be precise. I wash my eyes with cold water to somehow force myself to fully regain consciousness. I sat on my bed trying to analyze the dream I just had in a Freudian kind of way. Or at least that's what I told myself. It may have been a more paranoid look into my dream than actually analyzing anything.

I look out the window, and its still dark outside. It's somehow refreshing to see that it's still dark even though this is going to mess with my biological daily timing. I went out with only a t-shirt and boxer and stood outside the house looking up at the sky as the moon and the sun changes it's shifts. A glorious sight if only there were punch cards involved. Light passing through the sky, peeking its workplace.

As the sky turned bright I look away and saw that a couple of houses away there stood a girl for whom I knew too well. It was Daisy standing slowly looking away from the sky. She slowly looked my way and our eyes met with great awkwardness. She looked up for a second and looked back at me as if to say she too was enjoying the sunrise. She then slowly picked up her hand as if to wave then turned it into the middle finger.

Ah yes, the day has arrived.

0. Running out of my mind

I seemed to have gotten lost in the woods. I was sweating profusely from all the running. Of course I was running, when there's an eight foot giant bear who seemed like it wants to have me for sashimi. I know it'd be better to have salmon for sashimi and me as a slightly under cooked teppanyaki but under these circumstances he'd pretty much get bored waiting for me to cook.

I tried to call for help but to no avail, so I climbed a tree to get a better view of any available survival spots. It was a bad idea. The bear started pounding its whole body against the tree to have me fall down from it. This bear had to work hard for its food today. Kinda like those buffet tables during breaking of fast in those overly priced hotels. I guess he needed some exercise before a meal. There he was pounding the tree as I hold on for my measly life. I shouted all I could but no one was responding. I felt as every thump of its pounding made more and more branches fall. I knew I didn't have much more time. If only people around me knew how I felt about them. If only I had been able to say goodbye before I came into such predicament. Somehow though predicament isn't a big enough word to express such a situation.

This was it. My final minutes of life. I had only one branch left between me and death. One branch that if broken meant I would be more dead than Elvis or Michael Jackson combined. One branch that eventually broke. I was plummeting to my death with the bear ready down below to finish off any sense of life left in me but my neck broke on impact and died immediately resulting in a corpse lunch for the bear. *shrugs*
