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 →


Mirror mirror on the wall, this fight we keep will hurt us all. I weep, at me you smile and grin, how to stop the war I keep within I feel, it is so contradictory, craving love, reflection’s hate finds glory. Mirror mirror reflect to me some advice, although your treacherous words I do despise.... 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.

Love is absurd

My love for you, feels so neat, but oh, how it is bittersweet. For I can’t touch, nor feel, only long, and somehow, it feels so wrong. I can imagine only, it makes me feel so lonely. To love who no longer is, long ago left, into the abyss. My thoughts of you, almost alcoholic,... Continue Reading →

The Juniper Tree

Today I read the story about the Juniper Tree, from the brothers Grimm. And man, stories back than sure were morbid. I prefer the original untouched stories way more than the ones we have today. Polished and made spotless, sugarcoated, turned into a fairytale. Safe for kids. Like a diamond grinded into a jewel, from... Continue Reading →
