Inside Myself

Inside Myself

A Poem by Darrel


on the inside i’m smarter
more genius really
a sub-conscious mind criminal
capped with the reluctance
not to conform
not to give in
to the dull mold I have been given.
i think in lyrics, i think with a tone
i think in a way
that sounds better to my own ears,
no one else matters
the convincing stands for me alone,
the right melody could make even the worst words sound poetic
and that’s just the way i think,
all in all
my thoughts probably sound like a billy joel song.
deeper still, past the ignorance
to think that my thoughts could ever even come close to a billy joel song;
past that, lives a lovesick puppy dog.
a hormone driven bank robber
with an unjustifiable need
for love and attention,
a quick witted fast talkin man
who thinks not in sweet poetic melodies
but only in condescending phrases like:
“thank you, we are all a little refreshed now from your unique point of view”
“i like you, you remind me of when i was young and somewhat stupid”
when executed right,
and while completely abandoning all selflessness
this way of thinking can actually make me happy,
this must be my dark side.
