Pleadings

written by: Shoshana Vegh

 

Let me have you
In an infusion bag straight into my veins
In small drops of sweetness
In a bag that never ends
I’m addicted to your voice
That coaxes me with a foreign accent
To be your angel

Let me have you
In small capsules of medicine
That they do not have at a pharmacy
Without a prescription from a cardiologist
I need a daily supply
One that does not pity me

Let me have you
Day and night immediately
Desire me in this abundance
Which is not a known recipe
Is the need of the mind
To this crazy moment
Where you appear and the body yearns

Let me have you
With all your might
Like an animal that does not stop
Stick the teeth in me
After all, you devoured me
And I’m inside you
Just leave it to me
Medications heal the wounds of love

תֵּן לִי אוֹתְךָ
בְּשַׂקִּית אִינְפוּזְיָה יָשָׁר לַוְּרִיד
בְּטִפּוֹת קְטַנּוֹת שֶׁל מְתִיקוּת
בְּשַׂקִּית שֶׁאֵינָהּ מִסְתַּיֶּמֶת לְעוֹלָם
אֲנִי מְכוּרָה לַקּוֹל שֶׁלְּךָ
הַמְּשַׁדֵּל אוֹתִי בְּמִבְטָא זָר
לִהְיוֹת הַמַּלְאָךְ שֶׁלְּךָ

תֵּן לִי אוֹתְךָ
בְּקַפְּסוּלוֹת קְטַנּוֹת שֶׁל תְּרוּפָה
שֶׁאֵין לָהֶן מִרְשָׁם בְּבֵית מִרְקַחַת
לְלֹא מִרְשָׁם מֵרוֹפֵא הַלֵּב
אֲנִי זְקוּקָה לְאַסְפָּקָה יוֹמִית
כָּזֹאת שֶׁאֵינָהּ חוֹמֶלֶת עָלַי

תֵּן לִי אוֹתְךָ
בַּיּוֹם וּבַלַּיְלָה בְּאֹפֶן מִיָּדִי
תַּשְׁקֶה אוֹתִי בַּשֶּׁפַע הַזֶּה
שֶׁהוּא אֵינוֹ מַתְכּוֹן יָדוּעַ
הוּא הִזְדַּקְּקוּת הַנֶּפֶשׁ
לְרֶגַע הַזֶּה הַמְּשֻׁגָּע
שֶׁבּוֹ אַתָּה מוֹפִיעַ וְהַגּוּף מִשְׁתּוֹקֵק

תֵּן לִי אוֹתְךָ
בְּכָל עָצְמָתְךָ
כְּמוֹ חַיָּה שֶׁאֵינָהּ מַפְסִיקָה
לִנְעֹץ בִּי שִׁנֶּיהָ
הֲרֵי טָרַפְתָּ אוֹתִי
וַאֲנִי בְּתוֹכְךָ
רַק תַּשְׁאִיר לִי
תְּרוּפוֹת לְרַפֵּא אֶת פִּצְעֵי הָאַהֲבָה
