Monotony (poem)

Updated on November 10, 2013

I sat down with me

And what did I see

Reflections of me

-

Now how could this be

I then said to me

What mad fantasy

Has left me with me

-

Was easy to see

How much I loved me

But it’s misery

A whole world of me

With nowhere to flee

-

So I said to me

If this mockery

Must happen to me

And eternity

Shall hold only me

Monotony

-

My sad tearful plea

Was mirrored by me

Who apparently

Felt same way as me

Who searched for a key

To rid me of me

And live happily

-

In council with me

We formed strategy

Which pleased every me

Who all did agree

A happier me

Our plan would set free

When sleep released me

Stop being such an egotist

      When we're the center of it all, it does get to be a bit much. I like your poem and message.

      So clever! I really like this poem very much. Living with just me isn't always simple. I love your illustration that is so fitting for the topic.

      I'm so glad I live in the presence of so many lovely people, my partner, my family and my friends. Being with only me all the time would be burdensome, though I do enjoy quiet contemplation sometimes but not for long! Great poem - love the illustration!!

      Me seems to figure so much in our thoughts and actions, doesn't he? But it's so difficult to get rid of him. Great idea and good poem.

      I don't think I could live with myself! It would be too much.

      Thanks for sharing this, and have a great night, or day (whatever you consider this hour).
