"The Roads Between Us"

"Two roads split off from here,
and my life goes running in opposite directions...
Exaggerating the barrier between who I am,
and who I want to be."
~ Quote from the song "Note to Self" by From First to Last.

Source

Where these roads may take us,
only time will tell...
when I'm standing on a bridge to no where,
facing a heaven or a hell.
What lies ahead of me,
I do not know...
But what I leave behind,
is sure to leave me cold.
For I know what I am giving up.
And I know what I am losing.
And I know what I may never gain again.
And I know it will be my own wrong doing.

First what you quoted me on is totally lyrics from a song by from first to last.

Second. I hate it, and i love it. It's short, but stirs emotion from such a deep place.

Deep, Nikki, Deep

Wouldn't expect nothing less

When I read your words

Of course, some of the best

To stand up to your poetry

I try really hard to do

But for feeling and emotion

I don't compare to you

The journey of life often leads us to a crossing where we have to choose between two paths, but we never know which one to go for. Beautifully expressed Nikki.

haha cassie...i do like bisquits...and food in general so thats cool. lol

Cleaner I would love to put a face to that name :)

AudreyHowitt...when i see your name I think of Audrey Hepburn hehe. such an amazing lady. I saw Breakfast at Tiffany's for the first time over the weekend and fell absolutely in love with it. :) thanks for finding me as well and I will stop by your hubs soon. Thanks.

Senoritaa, always a pleasure. Lets just hope we choose the rights paths, though I know sometimes we cant always know which is right and in order to really live sometimes the wrong road must be travelled... thanks for the comments all.

Keep writing and someday, perhaps....

but for now I must stay under wraps

I'm so happy, my inspiration is back

now all my words will be back on track.

inspiration comes in many forms. Write when the words come to you, no matter where you are or what you are doing, find a way to put them down in writing before you forget them. You may sometimes falter off track but thats all a part of life.
