‘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.
‘Safety’ is an abstract piece about putting yourself out there for the other person and hoping they appreciate it and replicate the gesture.
‘Sonar’ is about not seeing your partners hints before it’s too late.
‘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.
‘Hide’ is a two-fold metaphor. On one hand being thankful for other people having experienced a similar emotion and you thus being able to relate to them. This could be through poetry, a song, movie, etc. The other angle is being passive and agreeing to follow the other person despite what you feel like.
‘Slowly’ is a piece about seeking that emotional connection and longing for that other person’s presence.
‘Landing’ is a self-reflective piece about getting to know oneself and reflect on what it is you are searching for.
