Narcissist

Narcissist

A Poem by Hayllie

It's supposed to be forever. 
Supposed to be until "death do us part"
Better together, until the end of time. Supposed to be soulmates.
Instead it's accusations because of your insecurities,
It's controlling me because you need to feel power.
It's you using our children we raised, against me to try and gain more power over me
Not anymore!

I refuse to give you power over me. 
I refuse to let you break me. 
I refuse to let you win. 

My mind clear, God by my side
I take the next step to my freedom
You wanted this, You chose to not want me anymore
So now I choose to love myself first
Then love my children. 

I refuse to give you power over me. 
I refuse to let you break me. 
I refuse to let you win. 

"Ignore me, I'll ignore you
you act single, I will act single
You claim me, and I will claim you
You play games, Then I will play games
You put me second, so now Im gonna put you last...."

Gee
As a father to a daughter your man's behaviour is despicable and would have me wanting to punch his lights out of I were your dad. You will be well rid of him when you are divorced.

Love your strident, self-protective stance, expressed with deep conflicted emotions. It's funny how certain people treat you like s**t over a lifetime & then one day you decide not to take it anymore & that's when they want you back & try to be all over your life again (((HUGS)))

I sincerely hope you feel better for having got all this off your chest .. a good rant when the reason for it is big or bad enough can work wonders .. whatever the case, I'm glad you could offload in this way .. I stand firmly in your corner and sincerely wish you well ................. Neville

A feisty write. Your second stanza...... three times you say, 'I refuse to...'. This is giving him a taste of his own medicine, standing up to him. Nothing worse than controlling behaviour, it's bullying. Thank you for sharing.

Those who are the weakest become the worst bullies...
I like the empowerment in this, the speaker not succumbing to that so-called wrath of power.

I like how you wrote above love. Love can make us twisted.
"Ignore me, I'll ignore you
