Love is a dirty word.
It started out in childhood
And it got. All very confused.
If it was ever said at all.
It was easily misconstrued.
And was either half hearted or never really said in truth.
And when she grew up.
And she was urged to trust.
It all just felt… far too much.
As she tried to figure out
How love was meant to touch.
She finally figured that she was stuck
The narcissists trap suffocating her in it’s clutch
Perverse amusement as darkness thundered
A magnificent web of lies the master of deceit
As he whispered in her ear
A dirty pool licked at her feet
Lost souls imprisoned attempting to escape
As water turned to quicksand and the clock jumped a beat
The future already here, the narcissist long gone
A story planned out since time begun.
A contradictory perverse mind
Some souls sinking deeper as the narcissists song echoed on.
Her mind harmonised to a frequency she hung on
Trying to gather her energy up.
Listening to others that claimed to hold the key that would release the devils evil clutch.
The gate of freedom she was told was not far
The bright yellow suns warmth holding her there…
Love was a dirty word.
She’d always felt.
But not anymore she understood as her heart started to melt.
It was only then she could see..
That she was starting to break free…
From the narcissists clutch.
