A year and a half ago, I lost my brother, overnight and was overwhelmed with shock, pain, grief, and confusion. On the night he was admitted to hospital we waited, my mind was awake all night and I wrote. I wrote to him, to come home.
The smile, the colour, the undertone –Double doses, doubled overSyncopated but not sustainedRhythmic and retching – Darkness does this to me. Sunlight stretching. Distant dappled.Where is mine – Midnight, moonshine.Tongues and insides. Downers and downsides.Words like sweat: rolling, tumbling, invading Numbers and fractions. Count, tap –Division is the only answerA shadow, a split, a taste.Flesh […]
I wrote this song at a time my flatmate was dating a number of guys and hadn’t had much luck finding the right guy until she met one off Tinder and fell in love. At the same time, another friend was going through her first ‘puppy love’ relationship and this song was inspired by both […]
A box room,Cardboard house,Row upon row stamped, pressed, grey copied.Here, poverty smellsAnd crime bubbles silently.Meditation; a cradle – stilling the heartbeat slow.They can sense a body breathingIn this home.Where the oozing of slime, see-through and burningHangs from floor to fridge door.Disinfectant thick pulls at myGluey white rice. Remnants a graffiti Or stereotypeWhilst the tea towelWipes […]
I feel in love with colors once,They’re bright, attractive allure,Drew me in time and time again,Fingers dancing on the edge of my heart,Caressing and sighing, teasing laughter echoed in my head,Colors drew me close, whispered beautiful things,I saw stars in so many different perspectives,Saw the sunset every day and each time gasped with the portrait […]

One Two Three Four Tiny steps, tiny spaces –Faceless and traceless.Bodily fluids, the only residue. Delivered in darkness, delivered in bunchesRed and black and blueUncurling, unfolding, unscented. A tapestry, microscopy –Fingering fabric, fibres.It’s all […]
This bubbly beat is a light warm summer track. I wrote this when I was with someone who despite feeling a little low made me smile.
This was when I was going through a lot; living a rushed life with work and my social life. I needed a detox. I, fortunately, live near some fields and a small farm where nature blocks out the sounds of the city. I like to touch base and connect with nature every now and then […]
Left look blooms for the eveFloral, flushed. Flue, fluent.Lush lips clay wooed. Cold slab grainsSunned., graze upwardsAgainst contours and bluebellsThe eyes, shrouded against all sight –Faith inscribed, chipped, cheat.BurnishRestoration of imaginings in colourOr just bleak – RedAnd brown wavesThick and smoothed as locksFalling purposefulWashed as if everything natural.Beginnings round and round.Love burns insideStroke on strokeThat […]
I wrote this track when I was traveling around Vancouver, Canada. I had been chilling with a group of musicians with my little ukulele. We were jamming and I was playing with made up fret shifts that I don’t know the actual chords for until this date and I started scatting and improvising. The lyrics […]
