The Other Me

Post by audiofool » Tue Nov 01, 2011 11:50 am

I should affix the wings
before flying off the handle
before I curse the daylight
I will burn another candle

before the next assumption
proves that I am but an ass
the road is long and winding
and we're running out of gas

I should take the time
to plagiarize the oft-repeated line
to set the record straight
and claim the fame that's mine

I'll get back to you
as circumstances allow
I'm circumspect though I suspect
the point is moot right now

forgive me if I drift off
in a semiconscious state
I am filled with self-loathing
but it's not me that I hate

its the other me
inside this shell
that makes my life
a living hell
and takes away
my dignity
for all time
and eternity

you're checking out
of this low-budget horror show
I wouldn't say I blame you
there's something you should know

I'm willing to concede
this bulb is not the brightest
but if you need to bleed
each cut is the politest

pardon me I have to go
it's time to retire
threadbare, now barely there
expecting to expire

its the other me
inside this shell
that makes my life
a living hell
and robs me
of my dignity
for the last time
an eternity

of me...

I apologize profusely
for the things I should have said
failing to register
conflicting thoughts inside my head

forming words is difficult
but I swear this much is true
please accept this sentiment
letter sent: I love you.
