‘Our eyes’ is a poem about having a crush and thinking about it constantly. Hoping, but being unsure if the other person feels the same.
‘Reeling’ is a poem about being over someone. How feelings of longing for them and despising them can change so fast.
‘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?
‘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.
‘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.
