Saudaraku... My Kins...

Kekesalan Sang Pencinta... A Lover's Regret...
Si botak dedikasikan tulisan kali ini buat semua yang curang di luar sana. Tak kira lelaki atau perempuan. Antara sonata terakhir karya Shakespeare, iaitu sonata ke 152 (daripada 154).


Shakespeare terkenal sebagai insan yang sangat meraikan cinta. Hampir keseluruhan sonata karangan beliau adalah mengenai cinta mendalam beliau terhadap seorang perempuan. Anak anak sekarang belajar sonata ke 18 di sekolah. Betapa hebatnya cinta Shakespeare terhadap perempuan hingga beliau karangkan sonata ke 18 yang membanding kejelitaan wanita berkenaan dengan segala yang cukup indah.


Sonata ke 152 ini merupakan bukti bahawa Shakespeare juga seorang yang curang. Lebih dahsyat, curang dengan seseorang yang bergelar isteri kepada lelaki lain. Mari kita susuri bait bait indah yang sebenarnya bersulam kekesalan dan pengakuan yang teramat memedihkan jika didengari oleh kekasih gelapnya. Betapa kesal kerana beliau menipu demi mendapatkan kehangatan di ranjang. Betapa kesal kerana beliau berbohong agar dapat menguasai tubuh wanita berkenaan.



In loving thee thou know'st I am forsworn;

[aku tahu aku telah mungkir pada satu janji (janji dengan isteri yang sah) dengan mencintaimu]

But thou art twice forsworn to me love swearing,

[tapi kau (perempuan simpanan) yang bersumpah mencintaiku, telah ingkar pada dua janji]

In act thy bed-vow broke and new faith torn,

[curang pada suamimu dengan meninggalkan ranjangnya demi cinta barumu (aku)]

In vowing new hate after new love bearing.

[kemudian ingkar pada sumpahmu pada kekasih barumu (aku) dengan mengatakan bahawa kau akan membenci dia (suamimu)]

But why of two oaths' breach do I accuse thee,

[tapi kenapalah aku tuduh kau melanggar dua sumpah]

When I break twenty? I am perjured most,

[sedangkan aku ingkar pada dua puluh (janji)? yang aku sumpah secara tak jujur]

For all my vows are oaths but to misuse thee,

[kerana semua sumpahku (pada kamu) adalah semata mata untuk menyesatkan kau dan mengeksploitasi dirimu]

And all my honest faith in thee is lost;

[aku tak lagi jujur padamu]

For I have sworn deep oaths of thy deep kindness,

[kerna aku dah berikrar menghargai kebaikanmu]


Oaths of thy love, thy truth, thy constancy,

[berikrar terhadap cintamu, kejujuranmu dan kesetiaanmu]

And, to enlighten thee, gave eyes to blindness,

[sebenarnya untuk menjadikan kau sempurna (di mataku), aku butakan mataku (agar tak nampak kekurangan kau)]

Or made them swear against the thing they see.

[bersumpah dengan menafikan apa yang sebenarnya mataku nampak]

For I have sworn thee fair: more perjured eye,

[kerana aku telah bersumpah bahawa kau cantik, dua kali ganda sebenarnya

mataku telah bersumpah bohong (engkau tak cantik, tetapi aku hanya mahu

layanan darimu, maka aku menipu)]


To swear against the truth so foul a lie.

[menawarkan penipuan setelah bersumpah bercakap benar]


Kepada setiap anak Adam dan Hawa yang memilih jalan serupa ini, hentikanlah segala penipuan sebegini. Jika hanya mahu layanan dan kehangatan, berbincanglah dengan isteri/suami anda agar satu persepakatan dapat dicapai. Nyatakan segala keinginan, segala fantasi agar tidak perlu lagi 'makan luar'. Perhubungan dua insan bergelar suami dan isteri adalah sangat suci. Jangan cemari ia dengan kerakusan serakah! Tak perlu menyesal di kemudian hari sebagaimana Shakespeare....


...................................................


Si botak is dedicating this entry to all adulterers out there. Whether a guy or or lady. Shakespeare's sonnet, among the last, sonnet 152 (out of 154).


Shakespeare was known as a man whom truly cherished love. Almost all of his sonnets evolved in his love towards a lady. Kids nowadays learn sonnet 18 in school. His love for her was so great until he compared her beauty to every single beautiful things.


This 152 sonnet is a proof of Shakespeare's infidelity. To a greater surprise, he was having an affar wth someone's wife. Let us go through this beautiful stanza which was really his regrets and confession that would break his dark lover's heart. How sorry he was for he was cheating as to heat up his bed only. How he was sorry to lie just for the lady's body only.


In loving thee thou know'st I am forsworn;
[I know I'm breaking a promise by loving you]


But thou art twice forsworn to me love swearing,
[but you (the mistress), swearing you love me, are breaking two promises]


In act thy bed-vow broke and new faith torn,
[cheating on your husband by leaving his bed]


In vowing new hate after new love bearing.
[then breaking your promise to your new lover (me) by vowing to hate him (your husband)]


But why of two oaths' breach do I accuse thee,
[But why am I accusing you of breaking two oaths ]


When I break twenty? I am perjured most,

[when I break twenty? I am perjured the most, ]


For all my vows are oaths but to misuse thee,
[because all of my vows are only made to mislead and exploit you]


And all my honest faith in thee is lost;
[ I'm no longer true to you]


For I have sworn deep oaths of thy deep kindness,

[For I have sworn great oaths about how kind you are]


Oaths of thy love, thy truth, thy constancy,
[oaths about your love, your faithfulness, your constancy]


And, to enlighten thee, gave eyes to blindness,
[And to make you look better I blinded myself]


Or made them swear against the thing they see.

[swearing to the opposite of what I actually saw]


For I have sworn thee fair: more perjured eye,
[For I have sworn that you are beautiful; my eye is doubly a liar]


To swear against the truth so foul a lie.
[offering such a foul lie after swearing to tell the truth]


To all the son of Adam and daughter of Eve who chose this similar route, stop all these lies. If desired better treatment and heat, talk to your spouses so that a way out shall be compromised. Express all of your needs, all of your fantasies so there won't any need to be 'eating out' no more. The bond of two people called husband and wife is so pure. Don't taint it with the raging lust! There is no use to regret it in the future just like Shakespeare....

    Salam adik botak,

    Sonata Shakespeare memang indah. Sayang sekali limitasi bahasa,sukar untuk menghayati bait-baitnya.
