Inner Voice

I talk to myself, do you?

I talk to myself, not because I am crazy. Not because my mind’s getting hazy. Not because my tongue’s too lazy.

I talk to myself, when I am feeling sad. When my day starts bad. When I am so gloomy to be glad.

I talk to myself, when work’s getting tough. When boss’s a bit rough. When everything felt like a bluff.

I talk to myself, when I feel incompetent. When my principles were bent. WhenΒ I am to spent.

I talk to myself…

do you?

      1. You are welcome, my friend. Yes, it is a coping mechanism for many people. I tend to spend time working outside until I am physically fatigued, when I feel stressed.It is usually an instant cure πŸ˜€


  1. I mostly sing to myself (that will keep me from talking to myself πŸ˜‰ ) but if I am a bit stressed about what I’m doing and running out of time I talk to myself as it helps to keep focused on what I’m doing πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you! πŸ™‚
      I am actually in a very low state this week, too tired maybe, that’s why it reflects on my posts. Thanks again!
      P.S. When do you talk yo yourself? πŸ™‚


      1. Of course you’re not crazy πŸ˜€ well on the contrary when someone talks to himself/herself i find it as a sign of sanity πŸ˜€
        I do it when I’m alone at night when I’m thinking about something, I can think more clearly when I talk to myself

  2. Many people talk to themselves and don’t even know it. My Mom does when she is working on something and planning and deciding how to do something. I do it when I’m unsure of something, when I need to get something right and it’s not working. Great poem I really liked this one. Creative.

      1. Thanks Rosema. Yeah, I think it’s are inner voice but also I think it’s a way of guiding ourselves. For example, when you write it often helps to read your posts/papers/letters out loud. I think the same applies when we are doing things throughout life.


  3. Yep, I talk to myself. Sometimes out loud, when there’s no one about. I used to talk with my cat, because I think she listened. And she often talked back or talked first. But that might simply have been a form of the same thing.

    Your verse here is packed with meaning in the examples and your wording. You use rhyme successfully. Rhyming here aids remembrance. The rhythm moves along in an energetic metre, which also helps. These are words for life, and the form is memorable as well. Thank you!

    1. I SHOULD thank you!
      You’re the critique that I always want to listen, too. πŸ™‚ Really appreciate how you analyse the details, rhyme, rhythm of my piece. You make them more special. πŸ™‚

      And I think cats do understand. Just like dogs!
      I am glad to know I am not alone talking alone! HAHA

      Thanks again!

      1. I’m glad you find my comments helpful. I enjoy reading everything from you. You’re right, dogs get it, too. And you and I are out there talking to ourselves, well, by ourselves.
