The Sound of Emptiness

written by: Khalid Belkhalfi

 

Let me tell you about the sound of emptiness
The sickness, the cold of hate and the smell of bleakness
You're in a crowded place but you cannot be seen
Everybody you see around you is bad and mean ..

Your body is heavy, slow and everything else is fast
You don't belong to the present and you hate the past
Thoughts in your brain don't make any sense and you're about to blast
Sadness and anger are your friends but the smile doesn't last ..

You cry out loud maybe someone will hear your suffering
But every helping hand, feels like suffocating
Your weak heart is losing its rhythm and can't hold the beat
You cannot eat or sleep and cannot stand on your feet ..

Did you come here by error and are you the mistake?
It gives you a headache while your body shake
All you want to do is disappear from this dark sphere
You're waiting for the door to open to end your fear ..

You close your eyes with their falling tears to shut the light
In a big hope to feel or see something bright
But each voyage is pulling you deeper into the darkness
I'm wondering if your name is called loneliness ..

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.
