The Weight of Eternal Self-Love is a collection of songs exploring the physical and emotional changes experienced by a trans person in his second puberty. These songs were written over the course of a few years, and brought to their final form during my first year on testosterone.

Track Name: Love in a Mist
a little soul is glowing
love in a mist is growing
Track Name: Womb
life was waiting to carry on
I was crawling into your womb to pray

as I lay down in the warm, wet memory
Track Name: Never Was
we fall down on limbs crossed
like a ray of sun
I'm unable to feel much
until you go back home

I hide you deep inside

a dulcet heart is beating
against a stronger wind
I feel like I've been cheated
I can't begin again
and we fall down on limbs crossed
we tangle on the ground
I cry until you love me
I cry until you feel

I hide you deep inside

never feel it was, never was
Track Name: Low Light
low light
be comfortable in quiet
low light
never feeling grounded
the sun's soft fingers tugging on the curtain

low light
nothing is around us
low light
when I'm alone in silence
I cry for love
