12- “The sound of emptiness”~by Khalid Belkhalfi



12- “The sound of emptiness”

Image may contain: one or more people

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 ..
