Hi, my name is Matthias. I’m working as an educator by day and a poet by night at http://lunarpoet.com – searching for the magic sparks in the interspaces, between the cracks of reality. Here I publish most of my poetry and get in touch with other poets or lovers of poetry and already met some amazing artists along the way.
Most of my poems are written in English, although German is my first language. For me, the English language simply works better when it comes to creating poetry. Shadow and light are creating all nuances of grey and so I try to feature more than plain black and white within my work. Also being (neuro-)queer has started to become more and more prominent in my pieces. Trying to keep my poetry eclectical I might throw in some prose, here and there, having started an ongoing dystopian narration, called “Concrete Walker”, which I’m publishing part by part and also recording along the way to make it more accessible.
All work published here including the pictures that illustrate/complement my words, are mine if not otherwise credited. You can always share something and credit me accordingly (using Matthias Grupe).
My next project is compiling a book of poetry, after finishing my formal training as an educator in 2020.
I hope you enjoy browsing through my collection. Drop me a line if you like, I always appreciate (constructive) criticism and engaging conversation.
Have a splendid day!
PS: My friend Paul has wrote a critique of my blog, you can find here.
