The Night Before Christmas

It was the night before Christmas,

And all through the house,

A narc started scheming

With a click of his mouse

The stockings all hung

With a hole in the heel

Emptied of presents

How low they would feel

The children were nestled

All safe in a bed

But it was not their happiness

That was in the narc’s head

And mom sobbing quietly

As the narc sought his fuel

His words had been caustic

And his actions so cruel

When out on the net

The narc did surf wide

Seeking the playmates

To make him powerful inside

Away to the dating site

He flies in a flash

Creating false profiles

Using someone else’s cash

The moon’s light from the window

Did highlight his mask

As he lied and he boasted

Obsessed by his task

When what to his wandering eyes

Should suddenly appear

But a fresh victim

Who was deliciously near

With a click of the mouse

And the charm running high

He opened his trap

And sent lie after lie

More rapid than eagles

Did his tendrils uncoil

Snaking about her

Dripping with oil

So dashing

And charming

So swift

Began the dance

She was dazzled



She stood not a chance

A red flag was flying

From a flagpole tall

Yet she was mesmerised

Taken in by it all

Yes it was late

But how about a beer

He would love to meet her

He knew she was near

So off to the bar

His victim did go

Intrigued and excited

As she strode through the snow

And then in a twinkling

She had a miseltoe kiss

What a marvellous present

It was too good to miss

And there in her head

Which was spinning around

She ignored the alarm bells

Which were beginning to sound

He gave her his fur

As he walked her back home

And there on the porch

His hands did they roam

I know it seems sudden

And I know it is late

But I have to tell you

That you’re my soulmate

She smiled and she gasped

Her heart all alight

As the harpoon hit its target

And her chest did feel tight

She took him inside

And he took her all night

A perfect coupling

It all felt so right

You are amazing

It barely seems true

But I think that I

Have fallen for you

She gazed in his eyes

For he was perfect

And basked in the love

That he did reflect

I will always protect you

He said as she dozed

Her mouth started smiling

As her eyes remained closed

Hours later she woke

The room bore a chill

The window flung open

Boot marks on the cill

She stood at the window

Her mouth open wide

As she recalled with a thrill

And such excitement inside

The mysterious stranger

Who came from nowhere

Who embraced her neck

And showed her such care

Her heart it beat faster

She wanted him so

She would soon see him

Of that she did know

With heart now on fire

And the hooks sunk in deep

She retired still smiling

To catch up on her sleep

Across town the narc was rising

His seeds had been sown

And the day’s first message

Arrived on his phone

He heard the first cries

From down below stair

About vanished presents

Such howls of despair

The narc walked to the mirror

And gave it a grin

For his schemes were now working

He was reeling them in

Already the day

Had started so well

And the ruined Christmas fayre

Would continue the hell

No laughter, no smiles

No pleasure or joy,

He smirked at the thought

Of the next broken toy

His planning bore fruit

The new prey now secure

The hopes of his family

Would soon hit the floor

A day of turmoil

Of drama and regret

With a fresh willing victim

How good would it get?

He smiled at the mirror

And there stared the ghoul

But our narc cared not one iota

He was getting his fuel

So if your night before Christmas

Sounds similar to  this tale

You know what to do

And you must not now fail

Gain knowledge, seize power

And become narc free

By reading everything you find

    Shall I follow Your own advice ?
    why do You show world how You enjoy amd prefer the negative fuel more than positive?

    1. HG Tudor says:

      I show the world this to be the case so that people understand and can apply it to their own circumstances.

    I’m finding your posts insightful. The portrait you are painting fits very much with the person I considered my soul mate. I ended the relationship 4 years ago feeling something was amiss and over time and much research, I’ve only come across your blog in the few weeks, I am reaching the conclusion he is a narc.
    My understanding is that once a narc always a narc, so may I ask why would you want to educate potential fuel sources for your kind, in ways of protecting ourselves against further abuse?

    1. malignnarc says:

      Hi Jax55, I am not going to meet any of you and the information I provide and the responses gives me fuel in itself. I like writing and it is upto the readers what they do with the information, if they find it useful, so be it. I am pleased you find the blog insightful.

      1. Jax55 says:

        Thank you. Yes that makes sense. I thought that there would be a fuel source for you here one way or the other.
        I’ve downloaded “Evil” on to my Kindle, I suspect I will find the reading of it illuminating.

        1. malignnarc says:

          I look forward to your comments on Evil.

  7. survivednarc says:

    By the way HG I happened to mention your blog in my latest blog post “The other side/voices of narcissists”, I hope you don’t mind, I got the impression that it was ok with you. Cheers 👍

    1. malignnarc says:

      Quite alright.I have just been reading it actually. Thank you for the mention and the kind words. I have been entertained by some of the comments.I do appreciate you spreading the word for the most valid of reasons.

  8. Sheila says:

    As with everything I’ve been reading of yours, very enlightening and well written. Thanks for sharing HG.

    1. malignnarc says:

      Hi Sheila, thank you and you are welcome.

  9. Nikita says:

    Good good good like everything you write … My xmas was not like that but the more I read you the more I feel I have to scape… It all lost the magic… When I am with him I find myself asking myself what is manufactured and what is real.., was there ever something real?? By reading you the answer tells me that no.. But it seemed so real… So perfectly real…
    I will now buy scape…..

  11. Leslie Constantino says:

    So seductive yet so true…as a teen I was obsessed with vampires….all I wanted was one to bite and leave…never suck me dry and watch me beg for more. Over the years it has made me stronger but not strong enough to resist the charm, the whirlwind romance or the fight to keep them mine. Now all I want is the choice to choose when I am suckled and drained. At least I will have control. By the way I hope you drive a manual….

  12. TimeWasted says:

    So dark. Evil. So well-written.
    I can’t wrap my head around being so cruel at Christmas.
    It helps me understand the mindset.
    My ex vanished at Christmas in 2007. So cruel. I forgave him though because I reasoned that he was feeling down with the passing of his father a few months before. He said he was hunting. I have to laugh at that. He may have been hunting, but not for the four-legged kind.

    1. malignnarc says:

      You will be right about the hunting.

  13. alexis2015s says:

    Pretty powerful post HG but so glad you brought some positive advice at the end.

    My husband’s N mum invited us for Christmas one year. When we arrived she put her coat on, told us the presents were under the tree and that she was off to the pub and to make sure we cleaned up before we left !

    Lucky we had each other to laugh about it.

  14. Yep. My narc couldn’t wait until the presents had been opened so he could go play golf or drive across town to be with his fucking parents. Ah….the importance of family. I just always thought it should be the family WE created who took precedence. Stupid me. That’s what I got for thinking….all those years.
    Pretty good poem, by the way.

    1. malignnarc says:

      Thanks Laurel

  15. survivednarc says:

    Please HG do not be the Grinch. I will write a quick Christmas “poem” just for you☺ ; “I know your heart is in there, (somewhere).🙋 Try something different this year; Christmas joy and cheer!” Happy Holidays! I am so happy and joyful today that nothing could bring me down right now, not even the narc, now how about that, huh? 😄💜🎄🎁🎅⛄ Hugs.

  16. Freedom says:

    Sounds like a typical narc any day not just Christmas.
    My ex never spent Christmas with me properly always opted to work or say he doesn’t like Christmas and he’s best left alone. I always made allowances that his sons mother left just after Christmas and his parents said he was very down after that and it made him worse! Thought you didn’t feel like that ??

      F@&k me that was good!
