Skinny Love - 2018
The definition of "skinny love" is a love felt between two people who are embarrassed to show it. I wrote this choral work not out of love, but out of anger towards people who disrespected my boundaries in my first semester of college. I used this title because I felt like these people and I were unable or embarrassed to communicate with each other about our feelings. I wrote the lyrics after a fight, where I blame our anger on our inability and laziness to understand each other's perspective. This song is an anthem of positivity, both for me and for anyone else who needs to hear it.
