Recently it dawned on me that I don’t write enough anymore. Yes, there are lyrics I work on for each song, and bits that I write on here, but I recall times in my teens when I couldn’t stop writing - sometimes just jotting my thoughts down, a stream-of-consciousness, word splattering mess on the page, keeping diaries, and sometimes writing a poem or two. Here’s a little poem I just wrote now, it’s just a light-hearted two verse limerick about love and doing things for the ones we care about.
When pursuing love’s coveted prize, I composed a sonata of sighs, Yet the following morning, Arrived with a warning; Grand gestures are not always wise.
Still I built her a palace to measure, That should bring her immeasurable pleasure, It stands up in the skies, But the ones in her eyes, Hold the only true beauty I treasure.
Day two of studio tomorrow - today was a reminder of how much I’ve missed that environment and challenging myself in that way. I’m excited to hear these songs take full form, and I can’t wait for you all to hear them.
