November Tears

by Shulamit Sapir-Nevo

Does it matter

 

Does it matter if

I had a rainbow

Over my shoulder

Even if the rain

And the sun

Never

Met.

 

Does it matter

If you were

A dream

Or illusion

As long as

You were.

You should have told me

 

You should have told me

Not to follow the moonlight,

Having no wings

To fly back.

 

You should have told me

To stay away from the ocean

Nobody is there to save

My drowning heart.

Sparrow

 

Sparrow,

Don’t follow the eagle

You might lose

Your sky.

Heartbreak hotel

 

Heartbreak hotel

It’s all included

The tears

The memories

The sighs.

How can I

 

How can I erase

My heart

How can I erase

The beats

That turned into

Songbirds

And now you want them

To be silent.

Snow White

 

You have eaten the apple

He gave you

Sour and sweet

And you fell asleep

Under the spell

Of his words and kiss

 

Though you heard

His horses galloping

While he left

You

Bewitched.

This forest

 

This forest

Has lost its magic

Even the moon has left it

And the swan lake has turned

Into ice.

 

No shoe

No reason

To dance.

How many

 

How many words does

Silence have?

How many tears

have

Eyes that are locked.

He can

 

He can turn off the stars

And the moon

Finish his last bitter whisky

He can open his shirt

To the wind

And let it caress his chest

 

Nobody is here

To see

How

The cats of loneliness

Snuggle

At his feet.

No longer

 

Words no longer fall

Like rosy rain

Dripping in my garden

To give me life

And let me bloom.

You are, and I am

 

You are a man

Of the big world.

 

And I am a woman of the

Fairy tales,

Where there is always

A hero

Who comes

To save

The princess

And to take her

To the star

Of love.

November tears

 

November tears

Are pouring

I can’t chase them

Away

To their clouds

Of yesterday,

And hide.

No umbrella.

Getting soaking wet

With a rain of memories.

Falling leaves

 

Falling leaves

Of our yesterday’s

Flowers

Yesterday’s promises

That you

Gave up on.

For a while

 

For a while

We had crossed

Each other’s lives

And the lights were

Green of buds of promises

And rosy peach sweet desires.

 

Then came the red

Lights,

Traffic had changed our

Directions

To goodbye.

Poker

 

He said he would teach me

How to have a poker face.

Could he ever teach me

To have a poker heart?

Cast off

 

Cast off

Your colorful bottle of dreams

Let the sea wipe them off

And carry them away

To sleep

Like broken sea glass.

Forever

 

It was a short

Forever,

Every hour

With its forever seconds.

And forever kiss.
