1. am
thirsty
for you
2. come here.
2. be full of yourself.

Tell me who 1. am!
But you will not define me.
You say how can 1. define
A river
That is new in every moment.
She can only be known by the rock who sits within her, or by her side
choosing to be worn by her. 
Effected by her many parts
Shaped and built by that which flows
Find the rock,
And you will 
Know the river
Because only the river knows what the rock once was. 

1. told you 1. was held by love.

    Beloved
    I have been calling You
    My Beloved. 
    And finally, one day, 
    I recognized myself
    As Your beloved. 
    And on that day
    You whispered,
    “so….
    Be Loved.”

    The Journey from Egypt was on time.
    when Isaac was Carrier of his whole people in a smile
    that came from nowhere. When he walked, just feeling the Light from being.
    and I imagine two men walking.

    One asking questions in the other’s head.  Do you hear my questions like laughter?... read on

    HAVE YOU HEARD YOUR MUSIC YET?!
    may you be grounded in the forest of
    being kissed by your own hands and head
    blessing blessing
    The breath of the endless.
    The touch of a nothing.
    the meaning of melting
    The heart that is still.

    Fear
    is the bookmark
    Holding the place
    Of all we are
    meant to do

    I’ve started to sing
    What these pages bring
    A sound that is brand new.

    The butterfly’s
    No longer too shy
    To show her patterns divine
    I give thanks to the breaks
    That told me to wait

    I don’t play hard to get, I just am.
    I do not play modest on purpose
    cause only intellectually do we exist in form.
    Maybe Gd wants you all to Herself.
    Maybe that’s what it’s all about, and
    You are being modest when you days that this is good.
    How can this love be in the... read on

    Ideal, hold this idea:
    I wonder what we are
    it’s effortless to twinkle like a star.
    Around me, all the Banshees Dance.
    and hide before a response can be given.
    but this is what I’d tell them, if they want to listen:
    all I want to say is what wants to be said.
