‘Mindtricks’ is a piece about depression and psychological illness. A societal view is often rooted in a solution-based idea that everything needs to be fixed as fast as possible and as easily as possible. The problem is psychological issues are hard to deal with and they take time.
‘Midterm’ is a more abstract piece about relationships and considering whether the specific relationship is worth it or not.
‘Long term’ is a piece about relationships and considering whether your partners flaws are deal-breakers or if it’s something that you imagine that they are. Is there even such a thing as a deal-breaker and where is the line?
‘Short term’ is about being in a relationship you cannot see a future in. Still you can acknowledge that it gives you value, so you stay in it.
‘Let go’ is a piece that reflects an instrumental tune I made of a same theme. The tune is recurring and resembles one’s state of mind.
‘Out’ is about getting in that mood. It’s about being hit with anxiety. It’s about feeling like you want to give up. It’s also about noticing it and wanting to restart.
‘Blame’ is about looking outward and resonating blame at anyone else than yourself.
‘Water’ is one of the shorter and abstract poems.
‘Trapped’ is about being afraid of hurting someone whilst still wanting to see where the relationship goes and the dichotomy this creates.
