Naïla Bensaïfi


Should I not have understood by now?

That none of this is real

I won't lose the hope your laughter pours in my heart

Have we misunderstood each other?

Tell me there is something there

I want no guarantee

Only authenticity

Every breath, I take only in the hopes that we exhale at the same time

I want to dangle from the ceiling of your mind and drop to the bottom of it

Like an unexpected genius idea

I'd like to see myself on your body

Even if it only is in the reflection of your eye

I will shout my yearning for you under every cloud

Until my love has cleared the whole sky
