We got married down on cripple creek
but you never gave me a diamond.
I had no way of knowing you were
the king of Magical Thinking...using illusion
and projection to dump your shame on me.
Has anyone heard of the pancake people
who puff themselves up with Arrogance?
To reinflate themselves they must diminish
or degrade someone else.
Why are you so Envious?
Why does your superiority breed contempt and
minimize the accomplishments of your friends?
You own the feeling of Entitlement; expecting
favorable treatment simply because you feel
you are uniquely special.
Defiance to this view triggers the narcissistic rage.
Exploitation is your tool; using others without regard
to their feelings, wrapping them in a winter of bleak.
Bad Boundaries...yours cannot be breached
but you refuse to recognize the lines others draw
in the sand for their own protection and survival.
You feel others exist only to meet your needs.
Narcissists make the worst partners; in business,
in friendship...and especially in marriage
for no partnership can exist with your
lack of empathy, shallow effect, superficial charm,
lack of remorse and guilt, and failure to accept
responsibility for your own actions.
You remarried, was it down on the same crippled creek?
I cry for her.
You say you've changed but narcissism is tatooed
on your heart...for it began when you were just a babe
and due to the defects in the nurturing you received.
Your mother didnt know her pain
was silently filling your tiny heart.
I don't want your diamonds..or your pearls.
I just want a calm, quiet life far from the jungles
of a narcissist.
