Dear God, you may love me from now on. I let you have your ways. Whatever, wherever, whenever you want. You know I won’t say no to you. I may suffer, you see, it’s not happiness I seek. It is you. It is where you are. It is your will.
I am tired, constantly being in the hands of some angry gods. You, after all the pain, the joy, the rejection, the suffering, and the confusion, you, yes you, are worth it. So, this is what it means to truly love someone, to stay and never left, to keep going even in the midst of the untamed storm, to keep trusting, and keep hanging on. It is blood, sweat, and tears.
No more lies. You, …are the very reason I live. Almost everything I do, is for the love of You. You, are my passion, an addiction I don’t ever want to get over. If I lose you, I have nothing.
I want you. I want you, to have me. If you were real, you would listen. If you listen, I am yours forever, and never we will part ever again. And we shall paint the sky and dance the stars in place for all eternity.
Until I hear from you again in the majesty of the pink sky, in the magic of the clouds, in the hope the rainbows and the sunshine bring, in the precious tears of my lover and my best friend, and the smiles of the needy and the beautiful, I am going to move on and be happy.
I have decided to be happy from now on. Today. Now. ‘Til the day I die. Don’t know why, just don’t feel like crying no more. It’s not time to give up now, because you’re worth it, and we’re meant to be.

… I want the city of God
I want the new Jakarta
I don’t want poverty, tears, sickness, or death

… I want a revolution - Penny & Huxley, 2014
And you’re right, Huxley. I want God, too. Not necessarily his characters, but you know, ..him. If I want God, he must exists. If God exists, miracles happen. If miracles happen, God must love me, because, that’s the only way that a monster and a saint such as I, can have him.

Our Father, Who Art In Heaven
My canvas is the sky where I paint the clouds and the sky
My studio is in heaven, where I work, rest, bless, and enjoy my creations
My dance floor is the Milky Way, where I dance the stars in place
My face is the earth, where I shed tears without the earth deserving it
My stage is the cities and suburbs in the world, where I direct strangers to meet and fall in love and be friends with
My movie script is the book of life, where my precious children’s names are written on earth as it is in heaven
My musical instruments are my beloved’s feet and hands and lips
My music is the footsteps of my fellow travelers walking around on our journey back home
My walls for my graffiti are your hearts, you raw beauties
My poetry is in the conversation between lovers whom I unite in erotic love
My camera, my lens, are my words. My words help you see things as they are. Very very good as they are
My movie set is in cities all around the world
From what I say, things are formed and created
And today I say, truly truly I say,
My home is where you are, and
My life is you
I, the King of kings of the earth, and The Creator of the universe shall turn around and become a Father
And kiss you
And feast with you
For my sons and daughters have come back home
