Myself and I

In varying degrees, the other person or persons in us would also like to be active like the real self. There are Freudian elements like the id attempting to think and act instinctively and the superego clamping the attempts with conventions. More than this, this poem tries to show the clash of personalities on one occasion. Most of the time, the real self overrules, otherwise we need to visit a psychiatrist.

Myself and I

On a pleasant day
I would like to see
A damsel of energy
And figure so full of envy
Chiseled earth towards my way

Tarnished minds
From graveyard shifts
Lurking at windows
Opportune from fragility
Instincts you might say

Flamengo steps
Her dainty moves
Asking for the time
Twisiting my arm
With glitters of sunshine

Phlegmatic spins did she unfold
A woman's dream
Presumptions of yesterday
Blurred by dichotomy
Toying with tragedy

Her hair touch my shin
As I precised
Melting the rose perfume
Inhaled facetiously
She takes a second swipe

I hear the fingers tapping
And eyes furtively awaiting
Devoid of sense
He taps again
In reverence for catatonia

Anxious knight
Waiting for clues and signs
Demeanor involontaire
Perhaps to make merry
The champion of delight

Despairingly forboding
Chastised by a sibling
Remorsefully not willing
Grimping haphazardly
In remote reality

Strength of vespers
Anchored in Freudian cord
Simple exercise
In thesaurus conventions
Yearning for unification.

Interesting poem, while your observation of a multiplicity of sub-personality's exist and are indeed a necessary part of normal life, as you mention.Why then do people frown when alternative words like schizophrenia and multiple personality disorder is being used for something this normal?

Thanks for the comment Mr. Tranquilpen. To frown is a normal negative behaviour. "Alternative words" mentioned in the poem like schizophrenia and personality disorder are simply definitions and in my opinion admissions that sub-personalities do exist.
