The lines blur with decisions
Right or wrong? Left or right?
Which path is my salvation
My guiding light?
Which leads me toward temptation?
Will I get lost in regrets when I manage
To resurface?
Or will the darkness crave my adoration?

And which are you
who tempts me most?
In you, will I find
the wholeness that
I seek, or will I
drown in this darkness
I crave to adore?


Which will be my ending
The period at the last of my life story?
Cause really all this second guessing
Is reducing all the glory.
How can I hope to take the road of
greatness when I'm tangled in the essence
Of life's bitter possession, sin.

Or perhaps greatness
is birthed in the
bitterness of the
road, in finding the
essence of  
myself as I
search for
you.

This is very nice... I wondered for a moment whether it was supposed to be something along the lines of the bold being what the narrator says aloud, and the italics being what the narrator thinks... but now it makes sense. :)

Very nice collab. :D :thumbsup:

BTW... do you know what day it is? :giggle: :crazy: :plotting:

Cindy,

before i saw the comments, and while
i read the poem, i thought, "this
wording is unusual for Cindy". then,
i was like, "well, no", then, "well, yes",
then "what's going on, is Cindy schitzo?"

it's surprising to me, that i've read
enough of your poetry, (enjoying it all
BTW), to recognize your style. i could
not begin to describe it, but know it.

another, BTW, good work ladies!

I'm so sorry to be confusing, pip. I don't know though. I might be going schitzo. :rofl:

It's quite a lovely compliment that you know my style well enough to miss it. Thanks. :hug:

just telling it like i see it, Cindy.

thinking now of the physical lonliness
suffered by so many, i remember an old song,
"i'm gonna buy a paper doll that i can call my own,
a doll that other fellas cannot steal..."

there is something to be said for fantasy.
