Poem Commentary

I was alone when I wrote this.

Leave Me Alone

Don’t leave me alone with my thoughts,

They’re out to get me.

I have no defense mechanism when I’m alone.

Just me, myself and I.

The me in me is vicious.

It feasts on vulnerability.

It thrives on insecurities.

The me in me is what you see.

A cocky arrogant inconsiderate bitch.

But the me in me is because of myself.

Myself holds all the pain,

Myself reacts by pouring rain,

On me, you see?

Myself is a punk, plagued by misery with no company.

Myself is afraid of me.

I don’t know what to do with myself.

Speaking of I, who the hell are you?

I mean…who am I?

Who am I to tell me to humble myself?

You know I been through?

I mean… I know what I been through.

Me and myself get off easy.

What I mean is what’s done is done.

I cant go back, not like that.

I cant reverse, I doesn’t have a fucking time machine.

And I wasn’t there so me and myself is like fuck I.

Me want money so umma do me.

Fuck myself.

I aint shit either.

So I guess its all about me.

You see?

I mean… I see.

Don’t leave me alone with my thoughts.

Myself and I are out to get me.

Like the taste of madness. And the more you try to quell it the more the conversations keep going. I know the feeling of this shit. I like how you gave extra emphasis on the me myself and I. The poem almost twists itself in knots. A reality that most don't want to face, which only adds to it. You pour it well.

Very profound philosophical chasings of one's lost tranquility thoughts! Sad to say I follow you very clearly, for I too, have such troubled times when others let my babbling troubled mind slide off to the dark side that only possesses clashing thoughts of dismay... each and every time!!!

I liked it....got lost a bit with the point of view there but overall it was good and a damn fine idea of a poem.

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
