Feeling the dark

by

Hebah Galal

it's very easy pretending to be happy all the days
when the sun fills in rays
but when you are all alone,so on your own
when the sun goes down
and yet the dawn seems too far
it becomes hard to pretend
when all the masks are off
when the times get rough
when you finally feel tired of smiling all day
it's comfortable to cry then
you let your tears
wash your soul
purify your fears
in the dark when no eyes can see you
n no ears can hear you
you feel connected to every little creature on earth
that you can hear the all
see the all
and feel the all
but yet though you feel alone in the universe
it's in the dark when the pain
softly escapes thru the palm of your hand
and the light in your eyes,whispers and dies.


Another Poem

by

Hebah Galal

everything is the same
nothin actually changed
there was a littel cut in my finger
that no one would notice,not even me
but i can feel it,just a littel cut
but it hurts so much
when u look at the surface
everything is so perfect
but when u take a another look
and get a littel bit closer
u know something is wrong
i dunno what it is
but i can't feel that potential
that used to lay down deep inside
my words,
suddenly all those words
seems so shallow so fake
and not real
that they don't reveal,what i really feel
it doesn't touch my heart when i read it
and it doesn't make me cry
it's just a nother poem
another life
and another end


God's Gift

by

Hebah Galal

we are different,i don't doubt
but we perfectly fit into each other
to tell me something,u don't have to bother
i know it when i look into ur eyes
and there i see the clearest skies
and i see the whole world rise
to tell the story of me and you

we are different i don't doubt
but it's not about me or you
coz it's nothin that we choose to do
i dunno why when u hold me it's like home
i dunno why am i even writing this poem
and i also dunno why when we kiss
it feels like i'm leting go of everything
but yet though it feels like
the world form the palms of my hands,
wouldn't subside
that everything feels so right
i dunno why ur arms r my shelter
when things go wrong
all i know is that to you i belong
maybe we can't be together
but i'm urs till forever

and once i was cryin,i was so sad
everything was goin bad
u told me,look up to the sky above
how huge,how big it is
and remember,i'm somewhere underneath that sky too
lookin at it and thinkin of you

we are different,i don't doubt
but i'm a part of you
and without u,nothin would do.
guess i will always feel thankfull
for god gave me u.


Gypsy Fire

by

Hebah Galal

Night is her song
of which to hear,i long
she wispers the words softly
as she moves her body
around the fire
her eyes are castin a spell
of a charming magic
as she tells a story that's tragic
you can smell her perfume
thru the moon so bright
in this holy night
where you dig,dig,dig
and pray
in this sacred dark
she keeps dancing
on the beats of our hearts
while breaking mine apart.


I can't write

by

Hebah Galal

i can't write
coz words would let the tears
which i kept in my eyes

i can't write
coz words would free the fears
which i prisoned somewhere in me

i can't write
coz that would let new demons
instead of the ones i've killed before

i can't write
coz that would blow off the storm

and so i write


Ashes

by

Hebah Galal

cleaning my closet
i'm sweeping the ashes of my childhood
gettin rid of the silly old memories
gatherin the small colorfull books
and burning the fairy tales inside me

walkin down a road
not knowin where it leads
it takes courage
to give up everything
and take the big risk

voices i will always miss
memories i will never forget,
no matter how i try
things i will never give up
it's my childhood


Angel

by

Hebah Galal

An Angel
wispered softly in my ear
sang the songs
that i long to hear
we danced untill the sun went down
and when he touched me
i knew i was touched by an angel
i had the perfect dream
just lookin at his eyes
i felt so pure touchin him
the way he held me that night
i will never forget
how sweet it was
to lose my self in him
he was an Angel
my Angel


Never Get It Right

by

Hebah Galal

I sometimes get to think,
that maybe if you hold me once again tight
we can make it right
hold each others all night
i miss your touch
though i know i'm askin for so much
that maybe we can make it thru the place n time
maybe you'de be mine
and i'de be yours
get lost in each other's souls
i sometimes wonder why did we have to fight
when all i really wanted to say is i love you
and why everything we did or said just hurts us more
we never know what for
it's life,
which we never get it right


Alien

by

Hebah Galal

this planet is a beautifull place
but when the night comes
when i see the moon,and the stars
i feel lost in this world
there's no other star
that's my twin
i'm an alien
in this world of nothingness
i'm from another planet
of which i like to call
"stanza"
i'm stock here on Earth
a totally new universe
i wanna go back home
instead of writing this poem
coz i'm a stranger
among ppl i'm an alien
me and this planet,we never mesh
this air i breath,it's not the same
and this food i eat
it's weird
it's a planet of no name
but it's where i belong
it's where i feel strong
and where i can right all the wrongs
i'm waiting in the dark
for my ship to start

Nothin Lasts

by

Hebah Galal

there was that delicate layer of tears
surrounding my eyes
that i couldn't see the crowd
and with my hands,i covered my ears
for i didn't want to hear
it all seemed so un real
and i didn't dare to move
to my surprise they were clappin hands
they were feelin so happy
like they didn't know what i feel
that i was on the edge
of my fears and thoughts and pain
and it seemed very easy to get insane
it was only him,his vision among
all the people i didn't know
he was peace and comfort
among all the tears and fears
his vision was truth among all the lies
as a ray of light that shines
when the dawn seems yet very far
only he knew what i felt
he knew it was the greatest pain
and i saw the sadness in his eyes
i saw a faint of light
that slowly fades away
i felt his arms around me
despite the metres between us
it was way far sensable than reality
space was nothin to us,
it's almost too real to verbalize
time stopped
space freezed
it was only me and him in the universe
the last two creatures on Earth
that seems to be an end,but it's a start
and in the noise,i heard silence,
only his words were knockin my ears
he said just close ur eyes
soon the sun shall rise
it's gonna be over,
no pain lasts forever.
he was right,it doesn't last forever
maybe we can't stay together
but it doens't matter,
coz at a point everything seems to fade away
even life itself
still only that memory of him
there's nothing more to say
what we have is way stronger than society
it would last despite the bitter reality
and i know i would always hold a thought of him
through all the times and places
i know i'm safe,and i know it'll be ok
as i always remember i aint alone
in this huge place
i know i have a trace
as long as i love him.
goodbye,was all he said
i'll meet you in your dreams
