“Eye Will Not Cry” – what’s it all about?

There is a famous lyric by Cher that talks of words being weapon like and how they can wound and inflict pain on us sometimes. I feel that is such a true sentiment that fits into all aspects of our life.

Verbally, words have the capacity to rip you in half at any given moment. Yet I find that when words are written on a page, somehow they feel even more poignant.

It seems to add a bit of gravitas to what is being said and of course, without the tone or body language to accompany, the written words then become open to individual interpretation.

I find it interesting that different things can be read into words set as lyrics or poems. Both have played a huge part of my life and as you will see through these pages, I have been inspired by other people’s words for this book.

A song title here, a lyric there ~ provoking a trickle of inspiration in my head and leading to a flood of words of my own. They are just words, however they can be read in so many ways and they carry so much, or so little, depending on the intent of the writer, or of course the desire of the reader.

With all the above in mind, “Eye Will Not Cry” is a collection of simple poems and each is accompanied by a musical soundtrack. I encourage you to not only read my words, but seek out the music, listen to the words and connect the dots yourself.

However, please note, that the connection between my words and the music is mine – your interpretation of my words, is of course yours.

Some poems make sense, some don’t. Some reveal a lot, some reveal nothing at all. Don’t take it all at face value, but read between the lines. Please read this with your soul and ignore the warning signs.

  2. Thank you very much for following my blog! If I’m honest I haven’t read too much of your posts but from what I’ve glossed over you really do have a way with words and your literary skills are wonderful. I’m sure that I will be able to write more creatively from reading more of your works and I look forward to seeing them again 😀

  3. I love the idea of connecting each of your poems with music. I have done that on a few of my blog posts (or just posted a music video that speaks to me personally. I’m looking forward to reading (and watching/listening).
