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.


Three in a Row: The Right Side, Use the Fire, Soul

14 Sep 2022 1 minute read 0 comments Vincent Van Zandvoort

Innocent MonsterMy world was as small as a marble bag.I remember the darkness.The sudden silent kiss was deadly,like a snakebite.It told the entire storyin a language I couldn’t understand.The world was his.Freedom vanished before my ears;it became a...

DamagedTomorrow there's a lovely gatheringin honor of anything,attended by everyone.An invite is an insult,as no one is freefrom the breathing frenzy.I'll take part in the show.Someone whispers,"Tomorrow will never know."The night is bright;it's when...
