My Biography

This tab is a Premium Membership feature.


Bloggers Photo

I am Darren, 21 years old. I write poetry in English, which is not my native tongue, not even my second language, but my third. Which is why you most probably will find a lot of crimes against grammar and spelling. Bear with me.

I love to write dark poetry, about abuse, physical and mental illness and more. Most is from personal experience, I am however NOT the lines I write. I write to create a poem first and foremost.


I can write in all sorts of conventional rhyme, but I prefer free verse. A few of my poems in Dutch have been published in an anthology. One of my English poems has been published in the "Love is Love" anthology for the (family of) victims of the Pulse-shooting in Orlando.

I have translated Arabic poetry into English for Poetry Festivals. I like being Houdini, chained to the original poem and its conventions, yet freeing myself to deliver the best possible poem. I love it.


My goal for the future is to write enough poems to create a book to support abused young boys. Sexual, physical, emotional, spiritual abuse. Sex-trafficking victims. Boys like myself. Gay boys like myself.


When I'm not writing poetry, I chat with friends, or ride my wheelchair as fast as I can (which is fast, I outrun you with ease ;) )

Darren.
