When we two parted (II)

Not the Byron poem I posted about last week. This is an Afghan Whigs song - one of my favourites off the album Gentlemen. Of course, it's a song, not a poem, so it's not nearly as potent stripped of the music. It's dark like the rest of the album, which is all about capturing the bitter disintegration of a relationship which has dragged on too long. 'What Jail Is Like' is an even better and darker song. Check that one out. (I'd recommend the whole album, if you can find it.)
