The Way You Made Me Hate You

written by: Khalid Belkhalfi


The ground beneath my feet is shaking
I’m not scared but my heart is pounding
My red eyes are pouring their pain
The sound of silence is driving me insane

My world is an infinite deserted land
With burning fires and dunes of sand
I’m being consumed alive by a strange fascist
I feel hate and I feel pain like a bad beast

I gaze at the far horizon but I see no light
Only darkness is catching up with my sight
I have no where to hide in this empty place
But I’ll keep running away from your ugly face

I cry for a different place that I can cope
But my voice echos back empty of hope
I’m doomed to live within this abomination
In a world of emptiness and desolation

My body is flushed into a deep faucet
My soul is chained to its imminent death
I’m seeking roads to hell with the speed of light
I’d rather see the devil than have you in my sight

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.
