***The real me


I'm different,
I'm unusually not the same
something askew
my thought patterns
something I can not feign.

I'm weird
and won't play this underfoot
playing games in my
macho mind
her body as my book

I'm old
but really yet still young
24 years
of old man thoughts
a real life mr. button

I lie,
and pretend I tell the truth
I think I see
so wise and free
while I wait at the laid off both

I'm a joke,
a play of a clown of a prophet
a man whose blind
behind his eyes
a piece of wood in a grommet.

    I love lines 4 and 5; 'my thought patterns something...' I simply do; overall great retrospective poem. I can relate to the old soul in young body theme. (Report) Reply

    The demonization of the own personality is an intersting literary device :) you use it quite well. Good write, real you ;) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
