What’s in a name

I had to write a poem once, describing a bit about myself while spelling out my name with the first letter of each sentence. I wrote two versions, one in Dutch (the original) and one in English. Personally, the version in Dutch is my favourite because it expresses my poem the strongest. I did my... Continue Reading →

Masks

Another ordinary day in my ordinary life. Walking home from my ordinary school to my ordinary house. Sometimes things just get so boring. Not that my life is bad at all, actually I think I’m doing pretty well. Good grades, parents that get along very well and many friends to hang out with. Maybe that’s... Continue Reading →

You know, the occasional severed body-part or something like that suddenly... Continue Reading →

A wall so tall

A wall so tall, over many I crawl, but this one seems final. With face against I stand, while sinking deeper in sand. I feel canned, by life I’m banned, at this crash land, nothing more at hand. This wall, it’s screaming. My life by dark skies redeeming, nothing more happens, but dreaming. It all... Continue Reading →

Hey little sis…

“Hey sis… remember when we were home? With the trees, the berries and the bees? Where we would play in the garden, about good and bad, but most of all, still with mom and dad?” “Hey sis… remember when I went on a vacation? They said so I could rest, it was for the best.... Continue Reading →
