‘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.
‘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.
‘Sry’ is a piece about dealing with issues in a self-destructive manner. It might be better to trick your mind into thinking you’re all right by doing things such as smiling in the mirror, appreciating little things, etc.
‘Electricity’ is about putting up with being set aside even though you give that other person everything you’ve got.
‘Noise’ is a reflective piece about behind unheard.
‘The covers’ is a piece about the back and forth in a relationship. It’s about not understanding each other’s needs and wishes and not communicating.
