Follow Me to the Hollow

Follow me to the hollow in the wood where we could talk until dawn. Run unto the sun inside our galaxy where we could be free. Chase me to the place under the sea, I ever ask you to be true. — Take me to the wilds, our picnic place on Pluto, the mushrooms inContinue reading “Follow Me to the Hollow”

I Am Worthy

Le le le aviar le le le pajaro le le estoy volando — Given or taken, handed or earned given or taken, blessings you termed. — I tell you, I am worthy. Your words make a prison in my heart, the crow caged by expectations sings so soft in here. You don’t know the tunesContinue reading “I Am Worthy”

Tethered to the Earth

tethered to the earth she who gave us birth taste the metal’s worth dancing with all mirth — We need stinging green Blossom bright like baby beans Call the sun to share her warmth Planet earth, we’re coming forth — tidal waves we’ve wept caverns grown unkempt we scream from the depths: dying for ourContinue reading “Tethered to the Earth”

Running Up That Hill

I watched Stranger Things season 4 two months ago–I’m late to the party, I know–and since then, I’ve re-watched that iconic scene in episode 4 (if you know, you know) at least 5 times. So a couple weeks ago, I finally did something about my mild obsession and made a cover of Running Up ThatContinue reading “Running Up That Hill”

Steal the Truth Together

I wrote a poem. Then I put it to some music. It’s less than 90 seconds long. *** Where do you, where do you wanna go? Speak to me, speak to me, take it slow. Tell me what you want to know From the sky to down below Searing hot or under snow– We couldContinue reading “Steal the Truth Together”

Where the Sky Meets the Sea

I hope you enjoy this experiment! I made a song on Garage Band on an iPad (so a super simple software), and I wanted to share it:) If you want more details about the meaning of this song and how I made it, check out this post on Buy Me a Coffee! I wrote lyricsContinue reading “Where the Sky Meets the Sea”

don’t you know, we can’t handle this?

Timestamp 4:45 is when this song gets real. Not that it wasn’t real before, that’s not what I mean. This whole song is real. But when it really gets real, it…you know what, wow, look at that super fancy lighting in the thumbnail, let’s just listen to the song, shall we? We’re in SPOILER territoryContinue reading “don’t you know, we can’t handle this?”

I ain’t qualified for this

But here’s someone who is. Jamala represented Ukraine in Eurovision 2016 with this song, “1944.” Its lyrics and music video describe the deportation of Crimean Tatars by the Soviet Union in World War II. In other words, the Soviet Union forced hundreds of thousands of people out of Crimea into Uzbekistan or nearby areas. ThousandsContinue reading “I ain’t qualified for this”

Songs that wreck me: Best Days

“Best Days” by Alessia Cara hit me in that twenty-something, good ol’ days way where you feel too old to be young but too young to be old. Like the song goes, “you live and then you die, but the hardest pill to swallow is the meantime.” Here I am, stuck in the meantime. BetweenContinue reading “Songs that wreck me: Best Days”

Songs that wreck me: A Different Kind of Human

By “wreck me” I mean, leave me so emotionally riveted that I just lie on the floor and cry my eyes out as I hear the song for the first time. A Different Kind of Human by AURORA did that to me. Let’s start with a particular comment on the video: “As an autistic person,Continue reading “Songs that wreck me: A Different Kind of Human”
