This poem is dedicated to anybody who has fallen in love with a narcissistic person. Let the pain go away. The deceiver will never stop deceiving!
This is a paradox.
-you are a bad man-
You lie like you breathe You cheat and deceive
Your smiles and your jokes Are in fact just a cloak
The sparkle in your eyes As you take pleasure in my cries
And the way you rejoice Hearing the pain in my voice
Made me understand That you ARE a bad man
Under that polished facade, You believe you’re a god
I’m tired of your neglect And of your disrespect
So I pen these words Hoping you’ve heard
That at the end of the day Those games that you play
Maybe you are fun But my dear I am done!

I say, “The devil is a beautiful (handsome) man…” to my Christian mom sometimes and it makes her so uncomfortable. But it’s true. And your poem says it all.
