‘Three paths, one truth’ is a poem about overthinking and being unsure how to go about a new relationship. Should you go fast, go slow, is it mutual, is it only one person in it?
‘The zone I’ is the 1st part of 4 in an abstract and reflective piece about feeling more inspired and creative when writing poems, songs, etc. whenever you’re sad. It’s such a paradox and impasse because I appreciate writing, but I feel it’s best when I’m sad. On the other hand I’ve learned to appreciate these moments, so I get through my issues and feel better on the other side.
‘Blinking lights’ is a piece inspired by Mark Oliver Everett (also known as E) from the band Eels. One of my favorite artists to listen to when I’m a bit down. The poem centers around an imbalance in a relationship.
‘Redemption’ is a piece about not being able to find that special someone.
‘Dreams’ is an abstract and reflective piece about childhood.
‘Deaf’ is a piece about being stuck.
‘Fight?’ is a piece about being passive in a relationship and hoping, or rather expecting that the other person will do all the work.
‘Safety’ is an abstract piece about putting yourself out there for the other person and hoping they appreciate it and replicate the gesture.
‘Sprained’ is a piece about the other person not being right for you and you perhaps not realizing it or doing so, but refusing to let go because you’re hanging on to a shiver of hope that they might be what you need.
