A Novel Idea

I am tired of holding all those negative feelings inside
In the near future I will be penning my first novel
I have a spot destined as the main character that with pride
I will pen all those emotions that have  shovel

And you my friend if you want a spot as a character role
Just keep on fueling these bitter angry emotions that I hold
I will probably will give you the leading spot as the sole
Character that will have all the negative traits that I see in you so bold

I know that it will sell several million copies as the best 
Horror work that has ever been written
For you will be like Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde at rest
And change into Dracula that was bitten

One stricken with schizophrenia or bi-polar at its worst
That is what I would write this character who is pushing my buttons
And causing all these angry repressions while smiling about to burst
Do you want to be this character that will be like Mrs. Robison's ___

(This is not an original idea for I have heard and seen it before
I do not know who to credit the idea to ..Since it is not being 
published, I guess it doesn't matter...)

    Ouch! I'd hate to be the inspiration for this novel, Sara. I've seen a few Jekyl/Hydes and they are people I choose to avoid. This does sound like a great idea for a story, though, and you obviously have had someone "pushing your buttons" to come up with such a great poem!
