You Are My Escape

You Are My Escape

written by: Khalid Belkhalfi

 

When times are hard,
and when noises are smacking cruelly
from everywhere and
are giving me headaches,
And when I need someone to lean on
I know then, I can count on you…

I then, close my eyes to see
complete darkness
Everything I hate get erased
I don’t see suffering anymore;
all the bad interferences
get turned off
and no hurt knocks on my brain…

But you are the unturned off lights
All I have to do is
stretch my arms to reach you
And feel the softness of your silky body
I can hear your whispers in my ears
calling my name from wherever you are
Your scent embraces my soul
and we make one …

This is when I’m in total harmony
with the universe
I’m where I belong, I’m free at last,
and away from the creatures
of the dark world
You are my inspiration, my freedom
You are my escape…

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.
