The playground (חוה שחם) / Poem by Hava Shacham (מגרש המשחקים)

Poem by Hava Shacham
The playground
Tell him you are lonely
on the playground
Tell him he's keeping you
in the white spaces.
Also tell him that all
your toys are lost
from their charm.
The words are also
and you're here alone
and he's there trapped
And how do you progress
because your heart goes out to him,
He said you are an angel
and angels need
a inscription
for their loneliness
חוה שחם
תַּגִּידִי לוֹ שֶׁבּוֹדֵד לָךְ
בְּמִגְרַשׁ הַמִּשְׂחָקִים,
תַּגִּידִי לוֹ שֶׁהוּא מַשְׁאִיר אוֹתָךְ
בַּמֶּרְחָבִים הַלְּבָנִים
גַּם תֹּאמְרִי לוֹ
שֶׁכָּל הַצַּעֲצוּעִים שֶׁלָּךְ
אִבְּדוּ מִקִּסְמָם
הַמִּלִּים גַּם
וְאַתְּ כָּאן לְבַד
וְהוּא שָׁם לָכוּד
וְאֵיךְ מִתְקַדְּמִים
כִּי לִבֵּךְ יוֹצֵא אֵלָיו
הוּא אָמַר שֶׁאַתְּ מַלְאַךְ
וְגַם מַלְאָכִים
צְרִיכִים כְּתֹבֶת
