I Scare Myself

I Scare Myself

A Poem by Alex W
"

A poem that references a real event in my life.

"

I scare myself sometimes you know,

and though you'd never think it so,

if you looked inside my mind,

a horror there is what you'd find.

 

I am not an evil person mind,

I am for most people very kind,

but cross me friend and you will see,

that there is darkness inside me.

 

I once was mugged by scumbags who,

thought less of me than most people do,

and tried to steal my personal goods,

to feed their addicton to some drugs.

 

Do not let my appearance decieve,

though short and thin my body seems,

throughout my life i've fought for fun,

and damage ive caused to more than one.

 

So when they pulled a knife on me,

my dark side did announce in glee,

that I perhaps should take that knife,

and drain that fool of all his life.

 

But my better half regained control,

from the side which murder I was told,

would satisfy my darker needs,

and happily would watch them bleed.

 

So lucky they are that I left it there,

for my darker side just would not care,

and would delight in hurting them,

and not to win some prize or gem,

 

but because i let my mind go free,

and to be frank it tickles me.

So please take care when threatening me,

or the violent side i'll let you see.

 

I scare myself sometimes you know,
and though you'd never think it so,
if you looked inside my mind,

a horror there is what you'd find.

I saw no spelling mistakes, but there may have been and i was too busy being impressed and astounded with the wonderful poem i was reading. I liked the poem, because it releases that dark side most feel the need to keep hidden. But it shows you welcome any creativity that comes to you, be it light or, in this case, dark. Great job! I loved it!! :)

Wow, I love it! The emotion and rhyme is fantastic, and the beat is strong and present throughout the poem. I think we all have a dark side of some sort...Great work!

Wow.. I loved this.. You did a very good job describing your dark side. I think we all have one.. I know I do.. I work hard at preventing it to be seen. I have so many favorites over the past few days that I have been a member on this site. I now have a new one to add. Thank you for sharing as this is quality writing! Keep it up!!

Ah my friend. Yes I can see you have that taste of fight not flight inside your soul. Feels good sometimes to let it go. Just have to have the right reason, and to bring a knife to rob you with...lol Your poem did an awesome job expressing your true motivations...Thanks for sharing.

I liked this, and would agree that we all have a darkside, and mine
likes to come out when I write.

Keep up the good work.

I love it and can relate, I have a dark side to me that most people don't want to see either. I also loved how you ended the poem the way you began it. Good write! Keep it up! :)

Great write on the struggle with your dark half. The Beast in us can be scary, even to ourselves since we half to live with it knowing its there just waiting/wanting to come out. Society today only frowns on this, shucks!
