I came to hear

the humming of nothingness

as a backdrop for peace.

And I was with you when

your stomach fell.

Your stomach had no

place to go.

Neither did I.

I sometimes wish I was your home.

I wish every day I knew

how to attach me to


Outside Classroom

Outside Classroom

Teach your children

every language you know.

Teach them love 

with your kindness,

and speak with them

in all the tongues you know.

They will hear you,

they will watch you,

and one day they will

decide which of your languages

they wish to practice.

To breathe in is to breathe out and again.

It is from within that we may find the reverence for Hashem’s beauty.

I walk you home

and your home

is the edge of my consciousness.

If my heart had wings.

If my soul could speak.

On my way

to you

I pass me by 

again and again.

The future “I”

has less power than 

the me of now.

We made room for forgiveness

in the smallest of cities.

How does one come to grasp

their most unnerving flaws?

You come

with parts of you


a book with pages


you are

made incomplete

by the words you

cannot say.

Do the ones we love

live inside us?

I carry you with me

and you may not realize.

Do you detach 

from your self?

Enough to stretch the 

distance between your

soul and body,

the balancing act

of a fallen soldier.

Color yourself onto

the walls.

If you are afraid

to be forgotten,

you will be a phantom

before you die.

We wake to the sound of us. We never know how to stop it, or why it happens. I did not choose you, nor did you choose me. We found each other because we searched at the same time.

We play with each other like a child plays with their shadow.

How do I capture you?

In each light

you become more

awe inspiring.

I once had ideas of how

long love would last.

I once placed love

on a shelf so high,

I could never reach you.
