Sophie Simmons Says ‘These Are All Secrets’ As She Explains The Meanings Of Her Poems
In an interview with Eat This Music, Gene Simmons’ daughter and talented young artist Sophie Simmons talked about her recently-published poetry book, ‘Secrets I Would Never Say, But I Would Sing,’ and revealed what inspired her while writing the verses.
As you may know, KISS bassist and co-lead singer Gene Simmons’ daughter Sophie has been working on various artistic genres, including music and poetry. Earlier in 2020, Sophie released her single titled ‘Mine’ featuring Felix Cartal which was climbing numerous charts since its initial release.
A short while ago, Simmons revealed that she was working on a new exciting project which will unveil her talent in a completely different field of art. On November 27, 2020, Sophie released her much-anticipated poetry book titled ‘Secrets I Would Never Say, But I Would Sing‘, which involved some pieces from her personal journal.
In a recent interview she joined, Sophie Simmons talked about ‘the secrets’ that she touched upon in her poetry book. Sophie mentioned that the name of the book was quite self-explanatory since she actually wrote her secrets into her poems which are the secrets she would never say to people’s faces. Simmons also stated that her book is entirely influenced by her own life and her own secrets she had to keep to herself for a long time now.
Here is what Sophie Simmons said about her poetry book:
“I think we’re all in kind of the same headspace. It’s a very weird time. I think it’s really healthy to talk all these feelings through. I know people have a stigma when it comes to therapy, but I think there’s no better time to sign up for it than now.
I feel the title is really self-explanatory. These are all secrets that I would write into songs or poems, but I would never say it to people’s faces. So, I think it’s really important to catalog it. I think we intend on this being a series so the reader can grow with me as I grow as a writer.
I think it’s impossible to keep at least a little bit of yourself out of your art. This book is entirely influenced by my life I would think. I thought it would be nice if there was a handwritten touch in there, and yes some of the lines are accentuated with handwriting. I’ll let you read into the meaning of that.”
