I am your biggest fan
As I greatly enjoy my existence, I would like to say your work is splendid
You’ve kept it interesting, thrown in a lot of plot twists, and I’m starting to think I may be a main character in this novel of your.
So, in order to prevent on obvious Greek myth-like demise,
I am investigating me character flaw
My Achilles heel,
The one thing you would use to screw me over,
I did not think it would be this hard…. or require a poem to explain.
But here we are
The easiest flaw of mine would to say that I was arrogant.
Now, I know I’m the smartest person in the room, but….
I always want to be heard,
Not like this,
Not patiently waiting at a microphone,
But pushing my thought into conversation as though that would somehow make it seem that I was adding something to it
I sometimes confuse this with passion,
And I admit they are similar,
But at the end of the day, it seems I am always more interested in how I sounded,
Rather that how I listened
You’re a sneaky bastard.
As any author knows,
The maddening toil,
The longing for sleep,
Can make anyone, especially the author; really want to kill off his or her characters,
And I appreciate the fact that you haven’t,
But did you really got to make me this anxious
Sometimes, I can just feel myself wanting to scream out into an empty classroom,
Except it isn’t empty,
And it’s not a classroom
And I begin to worry my coworkers.
If there is a person to over think,
To over worry,
To plan every worse case scenario I am your girl.
But, dear author, this is not my flaw.
Or at least my character flaw
A character flaw would be the one to ultimately lead to the characters demise-
Worry and overthinking have saved hundreds of lives…at least in the books I’ve read.
No, dear author, I think I’ve figured it out.
I’m lonely. Or rather lazy. Their synonyms in this case.
I could excuse myself now,
Use the classic saying of “I’m an introvert”
Or “I’m socially awkward”
But we both know that’s not quite true, is it?
An introvert is not a lonely person- they’re just a person who needs to be alone.
Being socially awkward may be a sign of a character trait, but it is also a sign of lack of adaptation.
This universe you’re creating is full of many diverse and strong characters- I should note that
This is not to reflect on mental illness though- I do realize there is a difference,
My depression may be a part of this,
Is part of this?
But when one goes to the doctor and gets told they have to do physical therapy,
They need to do physical therapy
I need to do the same.
It is difficult to admit you’re lazy about something, when it is not necessarily a graded aspect of life.
I’m lonely I say to a room full of people.
I’m not really lonely
I am not alone
You wrote me parents, a sister, a brother, I have friends, I have relatives.
I admit my character flaw- I want to see how this story moves on after this
I need to move on to the next page author.
So, can you give me a peek?
