Menanyai Ruh

Di manakah cinta itu, Ruh?
Hidupkah ia? Bernafaskah ia?
Serupakah ia dengan udara
mencekik bila tak ada?

Bersemayamkah ia?
Berkelanakah ia?
Ke bilik-bilik jantungku
menumpang aliran pembuluhku?

Di manakah cinta itu, Ruh?
Terekamkah ia?
dalam loncatan listrik syarafku
bergelung di lembah-bukit otakku?

Berceracaukah ia?
Menabuhi gendang telinga
dengan denging bahasa rahasia?

Sembunyikah ia?
di balik kelopak mataku
menyisip ke sela-sela rindu
serupa bayangan abu 
wajahnya tak kutahu?


Entah di mana dia
Cinta itu, Ruh...
