The Foals "Spanish Sahara"

The Drums "Best Friend"

Washed Out "Eyes Be Closed"


I want to jump in the pool of love
Get wet in the tangles of passion
Feel the heat beating on my face
Keeping me going
Through crashing waves
And forget the lies
That make us feel tamed
Hold my breath
And transport myself
To worlds of angels
Floating full of grace
Swim with arms flailing
Legs kicking
The way we get from place to place
When no one is looking
No one can care
Roll with the splashes
Keep me escaping
Like planets in outer space

About Woe

Words are our outright melody and no one else is going to play the songs you feel but yourself. Let me be more esoteric....just kidding. You may ask when reading my poetry, why do I use metaphors so often? After thinking that through, I honestly don't know why. My guess would be that language, though freeing, can also be restrictive. Especially in terms of expressing ourselves in attempt to understand ourselves. I, personally, get stuck in gears sometimes and I like to expand and break through traditional understanding of the concept at hand. I like to read what I'm feeling in different forms, and see if the language can lossen up more.
