Poems »

Olivier published his first poem in 1994, but after the backlash of his family for this and for the fact he is on the LGBTQ+ spectrum he lost his passion and romance and allowed himself to get into a mentally abusive relationship. during 15 years his romance and his passions were beaten out of him by parents and partner and he ended up trying to commit suicide on several occasions. since 2016 he has found his passion again, fist by mourning the end of the abusive relationship and realising he still loved his partner, but only in the shape from before they married, and he needed to rebuilt his life from the ground at age 40. Now at 47 he is finally starting to live again and is ready to share his poetry. Olivier is educated in graphic arts and decorative techniques. He was refused to attend university by his parents and got influenced to drop his promising career in interior designing for a job as a clerk. he has worked 25 years in customer services until it nearly killed him in the end. He was the owner of Two Guys from Brussels, a café safe house in Bangor, Gwynedd and invented the 'Praline coffee' and the 'Gardiners delight' iced chamomile tea. His favourite coffee is a Honey and Spice Cappuccino.
