Analysis of Two of me.
Scotty Taback 2004 (Chicago)
Who you gonna call now?
It all gone?
Where will you go?
Without them who even are you?
You’re as white as a ghost, calm down
It’s going to be okay
Not forever, But as long as you need me
It’s been a long winter
Winter is like my unbearable boss
Something you rarely enjoy the company of
But still have to endure
You can do this
I’m here go for now, to boost your morale
Don’t you worry
you can find yourself if you really look
But only if you try
I’m not here for long
I’m not here to fix
I’m here to assist
Anything you may need
Just give me a hollar, a call, a letter and I’ll be there

About this poem
Almost like a short story, this poem is about someone who suffers from multiple personality disorder. This person if going through a recent tragedy, the reader may decided what that is. I created the poem to where you can interpret it however you want. So maybe it’s not about someone suffering from something as awful as multiple personality, who knows. Maybe it’s about two characters. You decide.
