chord is my favourite

I feel like everyone has that one album, the one album that they have fallen so deeply and madly in love with that they could sing the whole thing through without hesitation. The one album you’ve listened to at least a thousand times and sometimes when you lie in bed at night you play it through your head to help you fall asleep. They might not even be your favourite band anymore, but that album will always have a special place in your soul.

My Favourite Chords (The Weakerthans Cover)

They’re tearing up streets again.
They’re building a new hotel.
The Mayor’s out killing kids to keep taxes down,
and me and my anger sit folding a paper bird,
letting the curtains turn to beating wings.
Wish I had a socket-set to dismantle this morning.
And just one pair of clean socks.
And a photo of you.
When you get off work tonight,
meet me at the construction site,
and we’ll write some notes to tape to the heavy machines,
like “We hope they treat you well. Hope you don’t work too hard.
We hope you get to be happy sometimes.”
Bring your swiss-army knife, and a bottle of something,
and I’ll bring some spraypaint and a new deck of cards.
Hey I found the safest place to keep all our tenderness.
Keep all our bad ideas. Keep all our hope.
It’s here in the smallest bones, the feet and the inner-ear.
It’s such an enormous thing to walk and to listen.
I’d like to fall asleep to the beat of you breathing
in a room near a truckstop on a highway somewhere.
You are a radio. You are an open door.
I am a faulty string of blue christmas lights.
You swim through frequencies.
You let that stranger in, as I’m blinking off and on and off again.
We’ve got a lot of time.
Or maybe we don’t, but I’d like to think so, so let me pretend.

These are my favourite chords.
I know you like them too.
When I get a new guitar, you can have this one and sing me a lullaby.
Sing me the alphabet.
Sing me a story I haven’t heard yet.

a humble homage to my favourite painting

like wtf is this painting i bust out laughign every time i look at it

You are the first day of sunshine after weeks full of rain, heart touching poetry, nail-biting crime thrillers, the newest episode of my favourite show, that first chords after the band enters the stage, watching strangers passing by, spending hours and hours in an antique book shop, museums of art, that rush of adrenaline when you did something you’d always been afraid of, sleeping in after exam period, getting out of your comfort zone and experiencing a whole new level of life, poetry slams, citrus tea, the first snow of the year, finally seeing the floor again after tidying up, high quality fanfiction, hot midsummer nights by the river and foreign cities.
—  // you are everything good in this world
j.d.m.

You’re in my veins
When I drank too much the night before
A heaviness consuming
All desire to endure.

You’re the opening chords of our favourite song,
The chorus of my existence,
But I’ve not been able
To turn on the radio
Since you’ve been gone.

You’re in the flick of my wrist
As I pen another love poem
About you
and your absence
The agony a provocation
To dispute the pretence.

As I look over,
In an intoxication scarcely numbing
The despair I breathe,
You’re the cold side
of my solitary bed
But your constant presence is
Inside my head.
