Slowly I married her


Slowly I married her
Slowly and bitterly married her love
Married her body
    in boredom and joy
Slowly I came to her
Slow and resentfully came to her bed
Came to her table 
in hunger and habit
    came to be fed
Slowly I married her
sanctioned by none
with nobody’s name
    amid general warnings
    amid general scorn
Came to her fragrance
    my nostrils wide
Came to her greed
    with seed for a child
Years in the coming 
and years in retreat
    Slowly I married her
Slowly I kneeled
And now we are wounded
    so deep and so well
that no one can hurt us
except Death itself
    And all through Death’s dream
I move with her lips
The dream is a night
    but eternal the kiss
And slowly I come to her
    slowly we shed
the clothes of our doubting
    and slowly we wed


Leonard Cohen, Slowly I married her
