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.


Mon Petit Chou

Mon Petit Chou Vampire's teeth sink deep in my skin.Where did she come from?Where has she been? A wordless dialog.A howling violin.Coffee and poison.Where has she been? Talking pictures.A crownless queen.Silent poems.Where has she been? A sudden kiss...

The Drill

The Drill Loneliness cares for me.Without it, where would I be?It never leaves my side, and doesn't like to share. We're exclusive.The love of my life lets me forget about a child, a wife. Till death do us part.Thief of the heart.Killer of hope. Gu...

Thickness of Walls

Thickness of Walls Ignoring the guilt. Don't look at the rain. Just carry on, they'll think you're insane. Stay safe inside.Outside is theirs. It's simply life, and nobody cares. How tables have turned.The knife points at me. Lack of self-preservatio...

Anew

AnewFear is a door.Nothing means more.Leaving my world behind.Why can’t you see?You matter to me!Leave your world behind.Love is a space.A path with no trace.A world of its own.Heaven can be,if you listen to me,the same as way up high.You’re new to m...

Cat

CatYou make me long for a song I've never heard before.Your uncomposed melodies and unwritten lyrics take a toll on my soul.Crepuscular rays. Helios still rides, no matter how big the cloud;the sun's bound to shine, and with this amount of rain,there...

Too Late

Too LateI can see it.I can see it in your eyes.You endured.You endured the same old lies.What you thought was a friendalmost became your end.The light's turned offinside your head.Girlfriends ranwhen you screamed in bedwhile you were asleep,running t...

Look Left

Look LeftThey will never see it. They'll never understand. Everyday the same song, sung by another band. They don't get it, the double layer in a poem. The worst case of Stockholm syndrome."If you have a beak, call your enemy a duck, and the sheep wi...

Egalitarianism

EgalitarianismI play with the letters of your name to see if I can change its meaning. I need a word my heart won't accept.I can't wake up; my soul overslept. Trouble comes. Different shapes and sizes. I am too deep into your nightmare.Everywhere I l...

Christmas

  Christmas   It's Christmas. The time to be alone has come. Once again, the two longest days of the year are here. My younger self wouldn't have survived if he had known. His wholesome heart. The purest of souls. It's good he never knew. Tears would...

Your Process

Your ProcessYou leave as you please and you stay far away, and the time that was spent makes me feel like cement 'cause you're stuck in my heart where your words fall apart, and I pick up a pen and rewrite them again in the very same way. Now there's...
