Two Lane Highway (+Reading) - See Note

Itís a quiet road where one lane heads north, the other south.
  
I travel life on both sides of this road especially at night.
†  
†  
Never ever meeting the illustrious middle. †
†  
Always sunny on the north side, never allowing pain and grief in this cavernous hole of loneliness. †
†  
The south side is where I live most comfortably. †
†  
Where my real self dwells- †
†  
It knows my pain and inner most sorrow. †
†  
The disappointment of failures only said aloud in my head and immediately denied. †
†  
In silent desperation I drive these forgotten roads. †
†  
†In isolation. †
†  
Searching- always searching for that god damn middle. †
†  
Perpetually meeting myself somewhere between too far off headed north. †
†  
†Or, in the ditch headed south. †
†  
Moonlight abates as first rays of sun shine through. †
†  
I come to- †
†  
From thoughts of despair and agony. Wondering what it was Iíd been thinking about? †
†  
I realize Iíve been driving all night. †
†  
Never going nor, arriving anywhere.

I did this because of one of Honoria's many beautiful comments where she expressed the desire to hear her writing based on a reading I posted. I never intended to post this but subsequently felt others would want to hear this incredible poem spoken aloud. So I am posting this with Honoria's permission.

NOTE: PLEASE I beg you do not put me in the position of asking me to record something. This was a spontaneous one off. :)

Here is a link to this poem and Honoria's other incredible submissions.
