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 Written by: Shannon Deane Written: June 28th, 2011 Contest: Myself Against Me

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.” *
