Haiku, unrhymed poetic form consisting of 17 syllables arranged in three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively. The haiku first emerged in Japanese literature during the 17th century, as a terse reaction to elaborate poetic traditions, though it did not become known by the name haiku until the 19th century. britannica

Gamble for Love

Sungguh malang nian
Aku kalah dalam percintaan
Dia yang aku perjuangkan
Tega menikam jantungku, dalam kegelapan

Ku pertaruhkan hidupku, jiwaku
Dan segala yang aku punya
Untuknya, ya untuknya
Hanya untuknya, agar dia bahagia

Tapi kini, aku tertikam
Jantungku terhunjam
Teramat dalam, kelam
Gelap, sepekat malam

Kepadamu tuhan
Zat penguasa alam
Aku berserah dalam diam
Malam ini, aku milikmu, dan engkau milikku

Thanks for read
