"Halt, muddy river! Rest awhile among your reeds.
Make way for a lover in a hurry,

for you haven't a bridge or a chain-ferry,
to take me across without oars."

(From Ovid's Amores - Book 3- translated by Guy Lee.)

This is as good a description as any of the sense of ‘crossing’ one experiences in the entanglement of new emotions.
