No Exit

No Exit

 

I knew

When you took me

To that room

Of countless one night stands

Prostitutes and drug deals

What you thought of me

Dirty little whore

But the adventure was too great

And I had no self-respect

Still trying to prove

My lack of emotion

My toughness

You were the ultimate test

Sometimes

I wish I had that back

I was hooked

On the passion and the danger

And the self-loathing felt so good

I knew

The first time you pushed me

I was nothing

But I was in too deep

There was no exit

Drugs would have been kinder to me

I might have actually died

But I was addicted to you

And you would resuscitate me

Just in time

Just to kill me

Again

This article for me pertains to the real self because she knew at the very first time that she’s living in the reality that the guy will never appreciate her but she keeps on proving herself instead.

This article is pertaining to the real self of the persona wherein, there’s no way to escape from her reality, from her pain and struggles. However , I think that the persona longs and desires for her ideal self to escape from her reality.

The article portrays the real self where she felt in love with a man but the man sees her as whore, prostitute, and addict. She couldn’t do anything about it. She is trying to be tough and not emotional. Drugs was her solution to escape from her problem and now she is dying and she couldn’t get off from this.

“Drugs would have been kinder to me
I might have actually died
But I was addicted to you…”

The poem pertains to her strong love and compassion to the man she adore, she somewhat compare it to a drug. Her feelings is overflowing that I’ve felt how much she’s too head over heels to the guy. It depicts to the real self because it is the reaction of our true self that coincides to our personality. It is something that we can’t stop nor hide, true feelings will eventually come out.

the author presents her experiences with the guy wherein she gave all of her to satisfy him. she followed what he wanted her to do but it wasn’t reciprocated. she still proves herself , what she can and what she is. she presents her real self by stating her struggles and how a real self proves itself to other people to please them.

Joseph Torreja MAR181 The analogy used in the article to present the concept of self is the neurotic need for a partner. As you can notice, the lines: I was hooked, I was addicted to you, shows that she’s really desperate for affection even though bad things happen to her. It depicts the REAL SELF because it explains the actual things that happen to her. And even though the guy doesn’t treat her well, she still stays with him. She enjoys the pain. She was addicted to the guy and she thinks that he’s the only one who could save… Read more »

This article depicts real self because it is based on her real experience and her description in her life. She is describing her true life and basically thats not her ideal but she has no choice because she loves the person
