My Rubicon

Whisper her name. 
Let the word flow through me. 
Now say it again. 
It fosters a melody so sweet and proud. 
I’m overcome by gentle dreams. 


Voices inside me come and go. 
They cry out for time and space. 
And a chance to make things right, 
But I’m afraid to see her again. 
I don’t want to fail her. 
Not again. 

“Empty your mind.” 
“Don’t hide from what is honest.”  

I’m suffocating in suspense. 
What am I in her eyes now? 
Dare I ask? 
An answer delivers my destiny. 
Ecstasy if yes. 
Exile if no. 

The Rubicon stands before me.
