A mistake of love (טָעוּת שֶׁל אַהֲבָה) / Poem by Shoshana Vegh

“I have no new words
I’ve hanged them all to dry on the line”

How come love became a mistake? It’s the most wonderful thing one can imagine despite any sort of bad consequences since majority of true love ends tragically (insert all sad poetry). It’s rare that two loving souls meet. It’s mostly one is at peace and the other at war. And only when the both are at peace, true and forever love is possible.


Poem by Shoshana Vegh
A mistake of love
I’m telling you
If a train leaves one station
Will it meet you at the final destination?
I have no new words
I’ve hanged them all to dry on the line
And I think I am falling in love with you
Like a tragic mistake
You are the king of this world
And I’m trying to clean up the rest of the words
People pass me by
And I’m still hanging on to that mistake
calling it
טָעוּת שֶׁל אַהֲבָה
אֲנִי אוֹמֶרֶת לְךָ
אִם רַכֶּבֶת יוֹצֵאת מִתַּחֲנָה אַחַת
הַאִם תִּפְגֹּשׁ אוֹתְךָ בַּתַּחֲנָה הַסּוֹפִית
אֵין לִי מִלִּים חֲדָשׁוֹת
אֶת כֻּלָּן תָּלִיתִי לְיִבּוּשׁ עַל חֶבֶל הַכְּבִיסָה
וַאֲנִי חוֹשֶׁבֶת שֶׁהִתְאַהַבְתִּי בְּךָ
כְּמוֹ בְּטָעוּת טְרָאגִית
אַתָּה הַמֶּלֶךְ שֶׁל הָעוֹלָם הַזֶּה
וַאֲנִי מְנַסָּה לְנַקּוֹת אֶת שְׁאֵרִיּוֹת הַמִּלִּים
אֲנָשִׁים חוֹלְפִים לְיָדִי
וַאֲנִי עֲדַיִן תְּלוּיָה עַל הַטָּעוּת הַזֹּאת
קוֹרֵאת לָהּ
