Seeking Advice from Leonard

from The Book of Longing

My time is running out
and still I have not sung
the true song
the great song

I admit
that I seem
to have lost my courage

a glance at the mirror
a glimpse into my heart
makes me want
to shut up forever

so why do you lean me here
Lord of my life
lean me at this table
in the middle of the night
how to be beautiful?


What else is there to do?

Leonard Cohen, sigh. He always makes my heart race.

I guess I had a Leonard Cohen moment here. But he's definately been one of my muses.
