Who do I love when this man is really two people in one?
Why oh why did I have to fall in love with Jekyll & Hyde?

ולא תתורו אחרי לבבכם
(במדבר טו:לט)

And you will not stray after your heart.
(Numbers, 15:39)

 
 

Love your fellow as yourself.
(Leviticus, 19:18)

but - when it comes to unsuitable relationships -

A person is not expected to live in a basket together with a snake.
(Talmud, Ketubot 77a)

ואהבת לרעך כמוך 
(ויקרא יט:יח)

אבל

אין אדם דר עם נחש בכפיפה אחת
(כתובות, עז ע׳׳א)

 
 

MY SELF

Long before the bells stop ringing
Long before I cease my singing
For you…

Before you rob me of my light
And cast me into endless night

Before I lose myself in you
And feel the coldness creeping through

Long before my heart lays frozen
In the grave that you have chosen for me…

I’ll choose myself
I’ll choose myself

I see your spirit’s cleft in two
I cannot love the pair of you…

Long before the bells stop ringing
Long before I cease my singing for you…

I’ll love myself…
I’ll love myself…
