Rubicon Crossing


RUBICON CROSSING

So long I'll be gone, so long disappear'd
Vapourize from you, our love has been shear'd,
Daught'r of eve no gormorah looking back
Yoke of grief in my 'phagus will I stack;
Bring forth a tumbler and let my eyes flood
Your love stabb'd me, the kniving pain drew blood;
Two pieces my turgid heart split to be
Two chambers for you two chambers for me,
Watch me map out my way through love's lab'rinth
Hence, my half heart rust like grey metal flint;
Six months I wept for thee, jan'ry through may,
June: The rainy month I wept day to day
Nay, shall my poor sight dilate to your face
Nor my honey'd tongue sting or sing your grace,
On the rubicon, my tibiae wabbles
No farewell speech my twisting tongue babbles,
Time is come, we'll take a diff'rent lone path
Tangent to us we'll face life's aftermath;
Sep'rate ways we turn, let thyself be strong
So long disappear'd I'll be gone, so long.
