smokingboot: (strawbsnail)
a sweet phrase from [personal profile] semyaza's journal:


A THOUSAND KISSES DEEP

How magical that sounds!

[Edited to add] Courtesy of Semyaza, I now know where the above comes from, and so copy Mr Cohen's lyrics here, because they sum up my current feelings so well:


I’m turning tricks, I’m getting fixed,
I’m back on Boogie Street.
You lose your grip, and then you slip
Into the Masterpiece.
And maybe I had miles to drive,
And promises to keep:
You ditch it all to stay alive,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

And sometimes when the night is slow,
The wretched and the meek,
We gather up our hearts and go,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

Confined to sex, we pressed against
The limits of the sea:
I saw there were no oceans left
For scavengers like me.
I made it to the forward deck.
I blessed our remnant fleet –
And then consented to be wrecked,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.


Just writing it cheers the melancholy from my soul!

In paradise I'll drown in you
