Caption: The #leonardcohen song /A Thousand Kisses Deep/ on Ten New Songs is based on this poem.
You came to me this morning
And you handled me like meat.
You’d have to live alone to know
How good that feels, how sweet.
My mirror twin, my next of kin,
I’d know you in my sleep.
And who but you would take me in
A thousand kisses deep?
I loved you when you opened
Like a lily to the heat.
I’m just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet,
Who loved you with his frozen love
His second-hand physique –
With all he is, and all he was
A thousand kisses deep.
All soaked in sex, and pressed against
The limits of the sea:
I saw there were no oceans left
For scavengers like me.
We made it to the forward deck
I blessed our remnant fleet –
And then consented to be wrecked
A thousand kisses deep.
I know you had to lie to me,
I know you had to cheat.
But the Means no longer guarantee
The Virtue in Deceit.
/That/ truth is bent, /that/ beauty spent,
/That/ style is obsolete –
Ever since the Holy Spirit went
A thousand kisses deep.
(So what about this Inner Light
That’s boundless and unique?
I’m slouching through another night
A thousand kisses deep.)
I’m turning tricks; I’m getting fixed,
I’m back on Boogie Street.
I tried to quit the business –
Hey, I’m lazy and I’m weak.
But sometimes when the night is slow,
The wretched and the meek,
We gather up our hearts and go
A thousand kisses deep.
(And fragrant is the thought of you,
The file on you complete –
Except what we forgot to do
A thousand kisses deep.)
The ponies run, the girls are young,
The odds are there to beat.
You win a while, and then its done –
Your little winning streak.
And summoned now to deal
With your invincible defeat,
You live your life as if it’s real
A thousand kisses deep.
