Song of the Day

Soen – Lunacy

From the album Lotus (2019). This song was suggested to me in a Spotify daily mix playlist. It is a prog rock playlist.

Soen is a Swedish supergroup with members of notable acts like Opeth, Amon Amarth, Testament… Lotus was their fourth release.

Fun fact: Soen is a word that exists in Luxembourgish too. It means “saying” in my native language.

28 years ago, my grandfather passed away. One of these days, I will tell the story of why I only have one positive memory of him.

monochrome dreams

In my monochrome dreams
I cannot kneel and wait
For the past to fade.
And hurricane heartbeats
colour the demons in my hostage mind.
I close my eyes and drown
in the dim cage of the midnight’s rest;
Glowing in these monochrome dreams.

Tomorrow

Cover picture by me

Tomorrow… A year in poetry. A lot can happen in 365 days. We fall in and out of love; Make and lose friends. We can be happy and sad; On a mental high or low. All these and many more emotions are explored in Out of the Dark and into the Light. Most poems are fiction, this time. But not all. The mystery is to untangle which ones are real and which ones aren’t.
I want to thank all of you who were a part of my year last year… Who knows, maybe you are mentioned in this book?

Out of the Dark and into the Light hits the shelves of Amazon and your ebook readers tomorrow. If you prefer a signed or personalised copy, write a comment under this post, and I will get in touch. xx

Flash #28

Every day in February, I shared a Flash. It was intended to be a piece of flash fiction every day, but it got a mind of its own. Challenges like this help me to stay consistent and focused. I am tired of social media but never tired of the blog. Let’s see what I can come up with for the month of March.

I care too much about this trivial thing, but I can’t deal with rejection, even less when I don’t understand the reason. It hurts.

Fuck them… Part of me wants to shout. The other part reminds me that there is a reason we got in touch – we were like-minded people, and I rarely feel a connection like this.

If this happened to someone else, I would tell them that people come into our lives when we need them, not when we want them. And they leave the same way too. Everything happens for a reason. But it is shallow talk, even to my own ears.

Happy last day of February. Tomorrow my latest book will hit the shelves and ebook readers…

Flash #27

I look at you and… Nothing… I am over this! Aimed at… whoever feels addressed.

Flash #26

A crying dream turned into a smiling day. I dreamed of moments in the Netherlands and moments of my childhood. Crying with my uncle and waking up cleansed.

Flash #25

Second good day in a row.

Three memes I saw this week and liked.

Flash #24

It’s that feeling deep inside that convinces you that everything will be all right. I was made for this job. And I love it. It doesn’t matter what happens in the future, I know that I will be fine.
