Poetry / Prose

I compose poetry and prose about the disappointments of life; dishonest people we come across; crushed hopes and expectations; the corruption that lies within everyone, but also lighter stuff. Go read it, and don't forget to like, tip, and share it. Much love, Vincent

Stick AroundLooking in the bathroom mirror,trying to see whomever resides there.A presence inside my eyes speaks to mewithout using words. It hates that I see it;it’s afraid I might free it.Half a decade of wallowing in the dirtsaving everyone but me...

The TrapSince the dawn of civilization, they have always been above; a crafty magician's nightmare, trickling down from up above.From the very depths of darkness, the master has returned to oversee who dreams amongst men, riding those that won't be b...

SilviaI left her smiling at my door.I could not love her anymore.On my face, there was no frown—a feeling like a fucking clown,lying in her face,leaving her inside a maze.Church bells won’t be ringing.I am a basket case.The girl who’s taking all the...

Blind EyeShe’s there. I live in her eyes.She’s there, loving my disguise.She knows that I’m not here alone.She sees right through the lies;she’s not blind.She’s there, kissing everyone.I hide; I’ve already won.Deep in her heart, she knows I’m made of...

Scire

Scire(i) Over-the-HillWhen you’re no longer blinded by the beauty of beauty, the days become more or less the same.I’ve swallowed all the pieces that cut you open from the inside: vanity is a broken mirror.Fast cars, loud exhaust pipes, screaming gir...

Glue

GlueWhat is it about the outside world that turns me into glue? There's no one here to call on, re-dream of all the lessons; I can't turn into you.My friends are gone; the hayday's ended; they're all banished from the throne. I've cried far more than...
