take a trip with me
through twisted history
and tortured memory.
a journey.
an odyssey.
escape from apathy.
travel through misery.
the agony and ecstasy of recovery
and self discovery.
develop dignity.
embrace empathy.
the brutal truth of honesty.
the road to victory.

these are my words.
some are recent, some are decades old.
different stages and moods that i have lived through,
during my life as victim and survivor.

some of these are still relevant today,
others are just pictures of past personalities.
reflections of my recovery.
sad and silly stories of my struggles.
twisted tales of my torments and tortures.

hope you enjoy.

please feel free to feedback.
in fact, i urge you to react, respond and reply.
i welcome ALL comments, compliments and complaints.
i am His story
rule number one
baggage check
wake up call
the secret
expresso manifesto
the art of exprexion
plan be
genesis revelation
emotional armour
science of conscience
solo soul
into me see
reflex shun
trust and truth
happiness happens
good medicine
hIDe your ID
picture in a locker
super fish hell (shallowater)
famiglia fatalità fatica
die familie : der fluch : die flucht
corruption incorporated
extinct instinct
power trip
loose cannon on deck of wild cards
nothing personal
courage of a coward
friendshipping & handling
improvised improvement
life in hell
c'est la vie du chien bâtard
great escape
ups & downs
bad seed
toy solDIEr boy
purge the urge
big bang theory
love is...
anthropic animalogic analytic
mon dieu
mon fiancé méfiance
meaning of life?
brahmanda birthday
in words, alas, drown i
no sir, panic is a basic in a prison
transcendental medication
love is key
labour of love
freedom of obsession
get the message?
papier tigre
magister ludi
cross swords over cross words
the little self esteem engine that could
rave review rear view
whoa! woe!
to what end?

all my poems.

The world is full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming it. ~ Helen Keller

i spent a lifetime exploring and expressing passion and pain.
i did the research.
i give you the results.

Memory atrophies unless it is communicated. ~ Barbara Clow

proceed at your own risk,
with caution and without haste.
the mind is a terrible thing to taste...

Abandon all hope, ye who enter here. ~ Dante Alighieri

you can hear my story expressed in lyrics here.
explicit words set to aggressive music.
listen at your own risk.
Survivor Songs

A big bump.. i think you're doing great in expressing yourself Victor! Please do continue! It helps me inspire creativity in myself, so your poetry is contagious!

Trust me, you are worth it to love yourself!

I now know who I am - I've never been anybody else!

Well I am Shy ...
but I won't be shy.
We've discussed this before ... you and I ... and you know I'm in your corner.
I hope this won't be seen as criticism ...
because it is sincere feedback.
Victor ... there's too much!
I find myself running through your posts at a gallop and if I don't instantly see a 'personal' note,
I gallop on. It's just too exhausting ... and a lot of the time I don't understand or it has no relevance for me.
Your heart is in the right place ... but your fingers are running amok ... :P
I'm risking offense in order not to be a hypocrite ... I had to say something.
I don't spend much time in 'Poems' anymore for the exact same reason you've posted this.
I'm sick to death of busting my ass making submissions ... getting over a 100 hits ... and not a single reply,
other than the regulars ... which is what ??? 6 ... 8 ???
I'd rather someone take a second and say ... "This is shit!" ... rather than get nothing at all.
Granted ... a lot of my stuff is shit ... but there is some good stuff there too that doesn't get acknowledged.
I do keep up and read everyone's posts ... but I only reply now if it touches me in a personal way ... if I have something to say that is significant for either the poet or myself.
I know that's contrary to what I've just said about getting no replies ... but one can't reply to everything ...
and sometimes I'd like to but don't know what to say ... so I'm guilty too ...
but ...
considering the few posts submitted by only a few of us versus the 100's of people viewing ...
it's pretty damn discouraging.
Everybody out there ...
SAY SOMETHING!!! ... at least once in a while.

((( v-v )))

this is my curse.
this is my crime.
verse after verse.
rhyme after rhyme.
i am a lyricist.
this i cannot resist.

thank you for noticing.
thank you for everything.

--- personal note -----------------------
i am pleased to hear my words have reached and touched other souls.
feedback is food to me.

i fear and i crave human contact and intimacy.
acceptance, attention, approval, security.
to seek validation creates vulnerability.
i wish i could say i don't care what you think of me,
but sometimes i like to hear something from somebody.
you can be neutral or hostile or friendly.
all that i need is some feedback occasionally.

Victor I have a little file on the desktop where I paste quotes from MS which help move me forward. You wrote many of them.

This one was about someone else but it really hit the mark.

family blood.
family ties.
family secrets.
family lies.

So true it hurts but in a good way.
The opposite of addiction is not sobriety. It is human connection.

Victor, you should never post here to look for validation. we all love to see feedback on our work. But please post for yourself and yourself only. and never stop until you deem it done.
Love heals everything
