Our new song, “Blood Diamond (الماسة الدم)” comes out this Friday, April 3rd! Please click the link in our bio to pre-save it – this is a huge help for us and helps the song reach more people! The artwork for the song was created by @rafikillustration, based in Lebanon. Last year, he and I connected over our song, “I’ll Never be Ready,” discovering that we both lost our fathers around the same time. A bittersweet bonding over great losses, but an honor to be able to create art dedicated to the expression of love from a place of knowing loss. Here, a graphic artist from across the ocean put into vision what my heart put into lyric and VERIDIA transposed into song. In the final single art, I’m pulling my heart out of my chest to reveal a brilliant, abstract, diamond heart… as I am slowly learning that loving myself and others well can be a painful process. . For all of the times I wanted to blame the love of my life for the lack of affection I felt, I realized we just communicate love differently, and the pressure I put on him to prove his love was unfair and only showed him how little I appreciated the ways he expressed his love. I caused myself pain, because I didn’t put in the work to understand how much he valued and loved me all along, and I caused him pain, because I made him feel exactly how I felt – not enough. Healing and strengthening our love came from digging deep into our own wounds and knowing that we will have more capacity to receive and feel love, the deeper we dig, the more open and vulnerable we are with each other. . We all have value and when we learn to selflessly love well… it’s always enough. Love is not a commodity, it’s not tangible; it’s the most precious, expensive gift in the world you can exchange, and yet, it’s priceless. . —“Broke your heart without intention Poisoned all of your affection I don’t deserve you, you made me see All this pain is self-inflicted Need to heal this deep affliction”
