For my dutch readers: A poem by Solomon Ik weet dat we elkaar eerder hebben ontmoet. Ik weet dat we waarschijnlijk al eerder hebben gesproken. En ik dacht dat ik je tenminste goed genoeg kende. Maar gisteren, Gisteren was de eerste keer dat ik je zag met mijn bril op. God, ik kan zweren datContinue reading “Ik had mijn bril niet op”
I’d prefer a full moon any day To those halflings in the sky every now and then Yes they shine, they really do But I guess its not always the light that counts Sometimes, it’s actually the darkness The contrast between the white and black of the night It’s the effect it leaves on aContinue reading “Screaming into the darkness”
With every sunset My vision worsened. I chased the falling sun So as to blur the present. Walked through the cold And let go of warm memories Solitude is all I kept So I swam and drowned in it. And while at the bottom, The bottom of a sea of emptiness I found a painfulContinue reading “Chasing the sunset”
I wrote my love for you On the falling sun So that every day I watched the sunset My heart would be right there with you. I hoped that maybe on your evening walks Your eyes would catch the sunset So that you would see Everything I saw in your heart.

I wanted to get lost in your eyes. Just like I did staring at the sun. I found the sun right in your eyes. Which I why I held on. Every day I get to watch the sunset, It falls leaving me behind. So alone I hear voices With their echoes within. Voices telling meContinue reading “When I found the sunset in your eyes….”

The small memories of you,
Now slowly turn black and white
Like this picture right in front of me.
sited on the grass, smiling away to the skies.
Run away , I did
Into this darkness, I reached
My presence hatred, it breeds
My soul and yours I bleached
In my world, I wish you well
Yet in your world, I am the phoenix.
In my world I choose you
And in your world, you choose everyone else.
I say sorry for just being who I am.
And for loving you too soon, still I say sorry.
Only it hurts to apologize for simply being me.
