BREATHE; OUR CONNECTION, HOWEVER SHORT, IS A GLIMPSE IN THE LIGHT OF HOPE
2.
It's Real 11:43
I’M AFRAID OF LIFE SCREAMING AND PSYCHIC TORTURE I DON’T WANT TO GO; HOME IS WHERE I FEEL LEAST SAFE I KNOW I AM SAFE BUT WHY CAN’T I STOP SHAKING? I’M LOOSING MY MIND AND MY MEMORIES ARE GONE IT’S BETTER THAT WAY EACH NIGHT RELIVING MY FEARS MY NIGHTMARE WAS REAL THINGS I IMAGINED WERE TOO FLASHBACKS ARE COMMON THE FUTURE IS FULL OF THEM WALKING ON EGGSHELLS NEW MEMORIES ARE HATCHING I’VE REACHED MY LIMIT I’M TIRED OF THIS ABUSE. I’M NOT GONNA BE A VICTIM OF CIRCUMSTANCE THIS ENDS NOW. NO MORE. I’M DONE.
3.
HEY. IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT. I KNOW. IT HURTS. YOU’RE ALIVE. THINGS MAY SEEM DARK NOW DON’T BE AFRAID OF THE LIGHT. YOU ARE NUMB. ESCAPE FROM HERE. ——— A LUSH GREEN, SPRING FIELD WITH GRASS AS HIGH AS YOUR KNEE …I MIGHT BE SAFE HERE… NATURE ACROSS THE LANDSCAPE THE LIGHT WARMS ALL IT TOUCHES
4.
LOOKING IN THE LAKE SEEING THOSE FISH PART NEARBY DO THEY CRY? [PAUSE] ...HUH I’LL NEVER SEE THEM AGAIN TEARS DISAPPEAR IN WATER THIS CRYSTAL WATER IS RIPPLING. DO NOT CRY. …THIS IS NOT MY FAULT THEN WHY’D THIS HAPPEN TO ME?
5.
LOOKING FOR ANSWERS UNDERNEATH THE TIDAL WAVES, DROWNING…I CAN’T SWIM.
6.
No Longer 09:42
THIS IS NOT MY FAULT VICTIM OF CHANCE NO LONGER I’M A SURVIVOR THIS IS A PART OF ME NOW THIS TIME I’M FREE FROM MY CHAINS
7.
IN THIS FIELD OF GREEN SURROUNDED BY BEAUTY HERE. I’M SAFE FROM PAIN HERE; I’M SAFE FROM PAIN EVERYWHERE. MY LIGHT OF HOPE SAVES ME FROM MY INNER TERROR, KNOWING THAT I’M LOVED THAT SOMEONE CARES ABOUT ME… I DON’T NEED THIS PLACE TO SAVE ME FROM MY SORROW TO SPARE ME FROM PAIN I CARRY THE PAIN WITH ME YOU MAKE IT LIGHTER. YOU FREE MY INHIBITIONS YOU MAKE ME BETTER MY MEMORIES STILL HAUNT ME SOMETIMES IT STILL HURTS YET YOU’RE STILL AROUND, AND KNOWING THAT I’M LOVED, THAT SOMEONE CARES ABOUT ME IS ENOUGH TO MAKE ME CRY.

about

The album was recorded live at the University of South Florida (April 29, 2015) and was the premier performance of The Emotional Suite, a 7-part suite for Jazz Quintet composed by Zachary Bornheimer.

From the program notes:

This suite is a labor of love and addiction–nearly a year in the making. Each movement is based on the emotional sensations of poetry in Japanese poetic forms. Lush chamber music at times and an exploration into tension at others, the goal of this music is to hypnotize the mind and take the listener through an emotional journey.

---

The poetry unites to tell a story of a child trying to cope with the trauma of psychological abuse–exploring the emotions at various points in the child’s life. The poetry was written by Zach Bornheimer using the Japanese poetic forms Tanka, Chōka, and Haiku.
