On The Path – Leonard Cohen


On the path

for C.C.

On the path of loneliness
I came to the place of song
and tarried there
for half my life
Now I leave my guitar
and my keyboards
my friends and s-x companions
and I stumble out again
on the path of loneliness
I am old but I have no regrets
not one
even though I am angry and alone
and filled with fear and desire
Bend down to me
from your mist and vines
O high one, long-fingered
and deep-seeing
Bend down to this sack of poison
and rotting teeth
and press your lips
to the light of my heart

Leonard Cohen

  3. On The Lanes for Leonard Cohen

    On the lanes
    by c.c.

    Y-u s-y on the path of loneliness
    y-u came to the place of song
    and tarried there
    f-r half your life
    but now leaving your guitar
    and keyboards
    and friends and sex companions
    and stumbling o-t again
    on the path of loneliness
    with no regrets
    n-t one
    and y-u s-y y-u are angry and alone
    and filled with fear and desire
    and y-u did this why
    For happiness
    For enlightenment
    -GOOD PLAN-
    I went bowling
