Entry #47

Me, Myself and I
by Peter Lidell

It wasn’t my fault… was it?!

Of cause not! Bitch! Yeah, she fucking deserved it!

Absolutely! No doubt!

You sure about that

What!? Who said that?!!


What!? Who’s Me??!


What the fu…!? What’s going on here?!

Ahh…I must be stressed out.

Why did you do it?

WHAT?! I haven’t done anything!!

Yeah, right. If that’s floats your boat, then...


Damn, I love this bike. I sure did the right thing buying it. Good thing that I didn’t take that sluts advice. If I had I’d be walking right now.

From now on I will only listen to me. Me, myself and I.

Yeah baby. Finally free. Just me, my bike and the running wind!

You sure about that?

Not you again. Ok, I’ll indulge What shouldn’t I be sure about?!

You tell me...

Ahh..forget about it! If that’s the way we’re doing this then count me out, pall.

Ok ,fair enough. Then tell me this, is it freedom that you feel right now or is it the rush of fear?

Fear!? Fear of what?


Losing!? What are you talking about?!! What’s there to lose? I’m free now! Nobody to answer to anymore.

We always have to answer for what we do. Sooner or later.

Well then, it sure looks like it’s going to be later then..

Maybe. But by then you’ll be left with just ‘you’. No freedom no bike no running wind and no me myself and I. Just You.

ahhh....the torments of self. Makes me wonder what really happened. How did he get there? Who is this "b####" he talks about?

Interesting conversation with self.
Very nicely done. You pulled it off well.

Good inner dialogue piece.

I can picture a person fracturing throughout this. The self-loathing side will eventually be all there is.

Nice, inventive use of interior dialogue. Although you left some mystery, we are in no doubt of his guilt.

Good job!

I have a feeling the inner voice is going to win out eventually.

This is "Waiting for Godot" on a bike with a splash of Jim Carey. The conflict continues ...

Nice inner dialogue here -I love that the conscience is aware of the bullshit he's feeding himself. Me, myself and I is a lonely road.

Missy said...

Ahh, I can feel the familiar dilemma of justifying with machismo in the face of fear. Good piece.

You brought out the voice of his conscience so well.

Well done!

The punishment and the erosion awaits. It's going to be a long life, I'm afraid.
