Hated River (Return to Normal - Jon Huxtable Mix) by MLucas published on 2012/11/28 12:46:58 +0000 Listen June, you don’t belong here. You are young, you are strong. Walk in the sunshine for awhile. You are noon. This place is always midnight, though you fight all that’s wrong I tell you this is but the first of nine. You can’t cross over this hated river until your bones are buried in the ground. It is not time. It's not yet your December. You cannot see the face dreaded even by the immortal gods, in her stony palace beneath the silver pillars; her name alone is an oath to Jupiter. The water is so wide, you can’t cross over, for your mother or your father or even for your lover. You can’t cross over this poison water. You can’t evade the hell-hounds at the gate. You dare not meet the child of the ocean tides of fate. And even if you could - and even if you did, If you crossed over this hated river then never, never, never would you return.
