Me Verses Me

Who is that staring back at me
Go away on the count of three
Do I know who you are
Can I wish upon a star
Questions of who I should be

Not just demons do I fight
Thoughts drift easily through the night
Myself against me 
Trying to break free
To do what I know is right

    Love these double limericks, Shannon. Sometimes we are our own worst enemy. I like how you order yourself to go away on the count of 3. I boss myself around all the time too. ha ha. Gwenodlen

    * “This Must Be Fictions Moment * My Dear Sweet Beautiful Shannon * Because All My Eyes Can See * Whenever I Gaze Beyound These Burgundy Curtains & Into The Priceless Beauty of You * Is Exactly That * Tender & Sweet Strawberries & Creams, Delicious Beauty * Reaching Into The Deepest of My Heart & Soul * As for Perhaps Following? * No, I Would Much Rather Walk By Your Heavenly Side * To Gather Your Fragrance As A Perfect Bouquet * Red Red Roses * My Luv, Always * Sarah.” *
