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'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.
