心臓: Daging Tak Bisa Patah/Flesh Cannot Be Broken (English Version)

This short prose is inspired by DAY6’s “Congratulations”. Lyrics as stated above.

Broken heart, I say, isn’t real. Because it’s not a piece of marble which can be smashed and scratched. It is not a branch which wind can squeeze until it loses its support. It’s not a bone which you can hit and make a crackling sound.

It is flesh, beating and continues beating. It’s a rhythm that’s half real, the rest you can’t see. It is a container that holds emotions and encapsulates the unspeakable.

It cannot be broken.

Or at least that’s what I believe.

(Yet who am I to trust.)
