“A Broken Blue” by Alf Sukatmo. Color pencil and graphite on paper.

Aku adalah cangkir biru
Yang terjatuh
Dan pecah
Tak sempat kau nikmati kopi manis di dalamnya
Aku adalah si biru
Yang berserak
Membuat luka di telapak kakimu
Setiap menginjaknya
Aku adalah si biru
Yang pecah
Yang tak  lagi menyaji kopi manis ke bibirmu
Bahkan dalam sisa hidupku
Sebelum terbuang di tong sampah
Aku akan membuat setiap langkahmu berdarah

====================================

I am a blue cup which fell
and broken,
before you had a chance to drank the coffee in me.

I am the blue which shattered,
making wound on your feet every time you step on me.

I am the broken blue whose no longer serving you a coffee,
and in the very end of my life i will made your step bleeding.

  1. Wow, this drawing really got my attention – mybe it’s the crisp blue in it. Your art is amazing and I’m especially taken with the fact that you keep your blog (at least partially) bilingual. Great stuff! Thanks for your like on my “Drawing of the Day 5/22″ btw.

    • Thank you. I try to give you the meaning in English as close as possible.
