red and blue circles
around his eyes like
cruel neon light
spotting every flaw
but the ones he chose to ignore
polar bears on turqouise ground
grunting him a lullaby

Two years ago I wrote a wordy introduction to this blog
It felt right at the time, but as I’ve been changing over those two years so has my poetry and I thought it might be a good idea to try again (always a good idea tot try again, by the way).
I don’t really like bringing myself into a focal point because I think it might be misleading from my poetry, which is deeply personal to begin with. So basically all you gonna find here is poetry with the occasional thrown in photography.
Usually I reply to comments and I’m very interested in what you make of my writing, because this sort of discussion to me is more personal and interesting than my so called “personal life”. I’ve received some amazing feedback and I’ve stumbled across amazing poets from all over the world by browsing the blogs of the people who liked or commented here.
Six random facts about me, because I feel I wanna give at least some links for whoever needs them (If you just enjoy reading poetry, just stop reading now) :
- working in elementary education
- first language: German, but writing in English for a while now
- always one coffee short from being soundly awake
- obsessed with drag queens
- my first name is Matthias
