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.


Zero Five Twenty-Six Hours

8 hours ago 1 minute read 0 comments Vincent Van Zandvoort

Zero Five Twenty-Six Hours The gray has finally returned.From a nightmare inside a dream. Time hides itself inside the darkest castle. I wander through its halls. There's no door, and there are no walls. A meeting of shadows that flew from the presen...

Someone Somewhere Somehow

Someone Somewhere Somehow Making up thoughts.Save what has left.Plan your own fall.Be what you're not.Random, repeat, and practice a lot. Daily nightmare. Lies in the news. True to the plan.Inside, you're mad.So you can rest. Your restless head. Coun...

My One True Friend

My One True Friend I'll lower my standards.I'll crawl beneath my feet. I peek inside their eyes and see their untold lies. A smile they cannot fake.No heart's at hand to break. I'm defined as a human heap.I might abrade the sleeping sheep. There's on...

Blight

Blight Innocent and free.Careless like the wind.Blue eyes that couldn't see.Clouds would pour out pain. And then I could not stay.Like dust gets wiped away.I was stripped of joy and pride.A special place where we can hide. Try to fight off superglue...

Tick TockAll you need is time.And time is all you have.It's all you've ever had.It's all you ever took.And wasting some of itmakes you the biggest crook.It's the only thing that's free,and the first thing that they take,when you commit a sin,when the...

Suggestio Falsi

Suggestio Falsi An untruth is told.A simple, mindless act.Believing young blue eyes.My word is a synonym for fact. My way is less important.The years have come and gone.The simple white lie lies heavy on my heart.A gut feeling; like I'm being torn a...

Parvenu

ParvenuWhy do you join in?This deranged clique that once drove you mad.Have you forgotten? They wanted you dead. I see you standing, circling around.Around their circles.A fact you forget.They still want you dead. The story doesn't end.Having a blast...

Aerosol Spraying

10 Mar 2024 1 minute read 0 comments Vincent Van Zandvoort

Aerosol Spraying Dizziness increases. As life passes by. A recurring nightmare. The dream is a lie. Cognitive dysfunctional. Crazy bumblebee. Trying to find. A hive it can't see. As paintings get smeared. And sculptures break down. Sandcastles are me...

The Visionary's Epiphany

The Visionary's Epiphany He was about to take his last breath when he heard everything around him start to speak; even the silence had something to say. He realized that in a couple of minutes, he'd be gone. But the world around him would keep going...

Loss For Words

19 Feb 2024 1 minute read 0 comments Vincent Van Zandvoort

  Loss For Words I have lost something that wasn't mine.The love for someone near. It had to disappear. The right thing to do makes us lonely and blue. Crushed by the truth, like God intended. The beginning of love has ended. Trauma, war, and brains...
