A thousand kisses deep

It’s always been sold as a song, but it’s simply an amazing poem created by Leonard Cohen.

I don’t usually put the whole lyric on a post, but this time it more than worth it!

Anytime I hear that song, a same special person comes to my mind so, for me, this song in entirely dedicated to her:

A thousand kisses deep:

______________________________________________________

You came to me this morning
And you handled me like meat
Youd have to be a man to know
How good that feels, how sweet

My mirror twin, my next of kin
Id 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
You see Im just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet

Who loved you with his frozen love
His secondhand physique
With all he is and all he was
A thousand kisses deep

I know you had to lie to me
I know you had to cheat
To pose all hot and high
Behind the veils of sheer deceit

Our perfect porn aristocrat
So elegant and cheap
Im old but Im still into that
A thousand kisses deep

Im good at love, Im good at hate
Its in between I freeze
Been working out but its too late
(Its been too late for years)

But you look good, you really do
They love you on the street
If you were here Id kneel for you
A thousand kisses deep

The autumn moved across your skin
Got something in my eye
A light that doesnt need to live
And doesnt need to die

A riddle in the book of love
Obscure and obsolete
And witnessed here in time and blood
A thousand kisses deep

But Im still working with the wine
Still dancing cheek to cheek
The band is playing Auld Lang Syne
But the heart will not retreat

I ran with Diz, I sang with Ray
I never had their sweet
But once or twice they let me play
A thousand kisses deep

I loved you when you opened
Like a lily to the heat
You see Im just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet

Who loved you with his frozen love
His secondhand physique
With all he is and all he was
A thousand kisses deep

But you dont need to hear me now
And every word I speak
It counts against me anyhow
A thousand kisses deep

The song follows with I’m your man, another song worthy of legend 😉

Valentine’s Day

Historically, Valentine’s day has had deep connections with love since the 14th century. Nowadays, it’s used to commemorate the love from a couple via poems, chocolate or little gifts.

Reading The Name of the Wind, you learn that you can get a girl’s heart with a combination of 7 words, which changes from one person to the other, and it’s not the same at every situation. Knowing this, I said to myself: “hey! why not creating a poem, made of 7 verses, with 7 words each?” And so I did.

I made it for one gorgeous girl in particular, the one who trully has my heart, yet it’d be nice for other people to make use of it, since it would mean they approve it 🙂

Here it goes:

Ever since the first day we met

We know we’re bound to be together

As if we were born as one

Just like the flower needs the river

That I need you by my side

Wish someday your warmth’ll bless my dreams

Since I love you, my dear Valentine
