A Letter to the Narcissist – No. 4




Untitled design

Dear Mr H

You seduced, you stole, you exalted, you annihilated,
You elevated, you decimated, you connected, you sucked me dry,
You opened me up, you closed me down,
You delivered me to ecstasy, you devalued and discarded me,
You were sensual, you were sardonic,
You made my heart smile, you tore out my soul,
You put me on a marble pedestal, you stoned me with your vicious tongue,
You bathed my heart in liquid gold, you buried me in quick sand,
You crowned me as your princess, you burnt me at the stake,
You were my prophecy, you were my Satan,
Your hands knew every inch of me,
You tore out my essence and trampled my boundaries,
You pledged unity only with me, you labelled me a whore and cheated,
You held me tightly in your arms, you suffocated the life out of me,
You cast, you hooked, you netted, you feasted,
You made every nerve ending shiver deliciously,
You were my divine intervention, you became my nervous breakdown,
You disconnected me from my higher power,
You were luminous, you illuminated, you are an illusion,
You loved and yet you didn’t
Because love is real. And you are not.

Sincerely Not Yours

Miss S

  1. The patient wife says:

    So much truth in all these words. So much pain and freedom Beautifully expressed.

  2. fiddleress says:

    How beautifully written. This poetic letter is amazing.

  3. Kristin says:

    Amazing and beautifully written. The exhilaration and unfathomable pain described has been endured by many on this site and is validation of the trauma experienced. Hopefully it will bring to light the often confusing behaviors of the narcissist and serve as eye opener to those currently entangled so that they can escape before they are completely destroyed.

  4. WhoCares says:

    I enjoyed the contrasting imagery throughout that expresses the dualities of the narcissistic entanglement. Great letter.
