Me, Myself, and I

Me, one day went to a grave that beheld an awful sight!
For myself was buried within its rubble,
With glaringly sick delight.
Off to the side, leaning against a tree,
I watched as myself began to scream.
“What is this, pitiful pleasure?”
I said to me.
“Is your joy, your pain?
Are your needs his pleads?”
Thinking about myself,
I quickly disappeared.
Now it was me that was left standing by the tree.
