Hello, I'm Rita El Khoury, Lebanese now living in France. I went to Melkart school, USJ University where I got a degree in Pharmacy. I am currently pursuing a Masters in Pathological Macromolecules at Paris Diderot university in Paris.

I started writing french poetry when I was 11, wrote till I was 15 then took my 50 poems and threw them in the garbage. That was the only way I could get over that period. I kept writing in French and eventually started writing in English when I was 18. I also wrote some 4 or 5 arabic poems, literary and spoken, but I guess it isn't my strong language when it comes to poetry.

I'll list my favorite poems here, ie the ones I advise you to ... more »

    Chere Rita,

    Un petit mot de moi pour dire que j'aime bien tes mots.
    Certains tracent dans le sable et toi tu fais des chateaux!

    Sincerement, tu es une des voix que j'aime le plus sur ce site.

    Continue a ecrire.

    Amicalement votre,

Best Poem of Rita El Khoury

My Sister, My Friend

Today, I feel like I've spent all of my life wandering
Waiting for some kind of miracle, for someone or something,
I feel like being a unique child was written in my fate
Because meeting my sister wasn't meant to make me wait.
I know that now the waiting is over, no more emptiness,
Because I met the one who could take me from my loneliness.

I know you are not perfect, but who would care
Perfection is nothing but a heavy burden to bear,
I know that since we became friends one year has gone by
But I've stopped counting the days: time is a lie,
I know that I...
