The Black Hole

written by: Khalid Belkhalfi


I am a stranger in this world
and I am one of its kind
I cannot see like everybody else does
but I'm not blind
What is blue, green, orange and yellow,
black and white or purple
Colors fading away
but my rainbow is more beautiful  ..

People are talking without speaking
something understandable
They don't seem to comprehend my words,
but my thoughts are valuable
Everyone acts as if they know me
but I don't remember their faces
I feel someone or something is watching me
all the time in all the places ..

Sorrow and joy are two enemies in my heart,
I've mixed feelings
I am smiling and crying
but all of my emotions have no meanings
I have no past and tomorrow doesn't
know my way but I am here!
I am scared continuously
but I have nothing to fear ..

Inside me there is a black hole
it's swallowed all that I've cherished
Where did my family and friends go
they seem to have vanished
I’m in an endless crazy dream
I have been cursed
Oh! vicious power, free me
I think my soul wants to burst ..

I'm 51 years old. I live in the beautiful city of Marrakesh, Morocco. I'm married and I have three kids. I studied in the states between the years of 1985 and 1994. I'm a computer scientist, but I work as a school manager in a large private school. I also teach English literature to kids between 14 and 18 years old. My love of English pushes me to read and write poems. Through this site I would like to read and share with the world the beauty of thoughts while appreciating life.
