A Talk With Myself

I had a chat with Myself today, It was a most serious chat indeed. There was a question I needed to ask, And Myself could answer that need.

“Myself,” said I with a thoughtful tone, “I know I love Junes more each day.
Yet I want to love her more than that,
Can you help find the best way?”

The brow of Myself grew furrowed, With what surely was earnest reflection.
Then slowly Myself asked a question, One crowded with deep introspection.

I was asked by Myself to explain, How much love I have for Junes. To find the right words was a struggle, I must have seemed to Myself a buffoon.

I finally managed to say to Myself,
“Myself, what I’ll tell you is true. I have never answered that question, But I believe it is time that I do.

“I love Junes more than all the sand,
In the deserts across the earth.
And I love her more than all the leaves,
In spring when the trees give birth.
I love her more than all the stars,
That the clear night skies reveal.
And the number of snowflakes in winter,
Cannot match the love I feel.”

I stared at Myself who seemed gloomy, I was confused by the look Myself wore.
Then said Myself in a voice rife with rue,
“It’s not possible to love Junes more.”

Feeling dismayed and a little bit angry, I looked at Myself hard and long.
Then I said to Myself with conviction,
“Myself,” I shall prove Myself wrong!”

The below is a computer-generated response from Neo, Neopoet's computer artificial intelligence:

The poem "A Talk With Myself" effectively captures a reflective and introspective conversation between the speaker and their inner self, Myself. The use of dialogue between the speaker and Myself adds depth to the exploration of love and the limitations of expressing it fully. The imagery of comparing love to elements in nature like sand, leaves, stars, and snowflakes is vivid and evocative, enhancing the emotional impact of the poem.

One suggestion for improvement would be to consider varying the rhyme scheme and meter throughout the poem to create a more dynamic flow. This could help maintain the reader's interest and prevent the poem from feeling repetitive or predictable. Additionally, exploring different poetic devices such as metaphors or symbolism could add layers of meaning to the theme of love and self-discovery.

Overall, "A Talk With Myself" presents a compelling narrative and theme, but further experimentation with form and literary devices could enhance the poem's impact and resonance with the reader.

As we gaze into the infinite, a clearer pictue comes into view. The deeper we look into anothers soul, the more our love expands and that exponentially if we but nourish the seed. The only person who meets the test is me and only me. Great writing.

The power of our language can and will change the world.
Successively until our languages become one!
