In Salty Air, Not One Care the speaker sets a scene of a beach and pens down its exquisiteness through other elements such as sky, sun, breeze, ocean, the sound of waves and the shells.
Salty Air, Not One Care
Soft white clouds roll across the sky,
The bright sun tans my skin.
A breeze blows the salty ocean air through my hair,
Creating soft waves.
My feet are in the sand,
The sound of waves crashing fills my ears.
Shells are washing upon the shore.
Considering it is the debut collection of the poet, she has written a poem tuned with a philosophical touch, Poison. The poem is unlike others and reveals facts but quite heartbreaking. She has classified various attractive things based on taste representing the danger or the reality behind every eye-catching object in the poetic form for the reader.
Sometimes, the most beautiful flower holds the most poison.
The smallest cranberry tastes the most bitter.
The biggest lemon can be the most sour.
Sometimes, the most beautiful person holds the most poison.
The smallest kiss tastes the most bitter.
The biggest lie can be the most sour.
In Fighting a Losing Battle, Emeli brings out an important fact that kind-hearted hardworking people often forget about themselves while caring for others. She emphasizes that she needs to get some time for herself to give her mind rest for a while. In this fast-moving world, everyone must spare some time to love themselves as we often forget to do so and remain busy in our life. A small point but a much significant she has pointed out in this poem. Well done!
Fighting a Losing Battle
I am fighting a battle against myself.
Trying so hard, yet getting let down.
How can I pull myself from this pit?
How do I save myself from this fate?
I care so much for others,
Yet forget about myself.
I need to give myself time,
Let my mind take a rest.
A debut volume of poetry traces the many flavors—bitter, sweet, and complex—of the poet’s experience. Emeli’s style of writing is lucid, concise, and devoid of any artificial vocabulary. I can see a bright shining future of Emeli in the field of literature and will expect more poetry books from her in the future. All the best!
