Merely Changed - Poem by Walid Boureghda

Each and every day and night,
The shadow of your image
Is creeping up on my eyes,
Sneaking into the deep side of me.

Each and every moment it happens,
I close my eyes, and there you are;
Reigning over my whole body and soul
And then I’ve totally lost the entire control.

I’m now like a robot in your hand:
You can either turn me all on,
Or even you can turn me off.
– At anytime, I’m all within your reach.

That’s my life you have changed.
That’s my body you have gained.
That’s my soul you have controlled.
And that’s my mind you’ve mesmerized
– That’s merely me, body and soul, totally yours
