"Love With a Narcissist"

She listens as he plans
each moment of their lives
like they will be together for all time,
he hugs her close with words of love
before he leaves for work,
on the very day
he decides their time is over.

She remembers a message from him their first week,
“I Love You
I know it’s too soon
for you to say it back,
that’s okay.”

She remembers how he exclaimed
“I am happy I finally found you
I have been searching for a long time.”

She remembers he showered her with attention,
sending her messages,
surprising her with gifts,
taking her on vacation after only two weeks
convincing her of his love.

She remembers him saying,
“You are good for me
I love you more than you will ever know.”

During their last days
his love for her grows stronger
closer than ever before
when suddenly, for no apparent reason
he detonates a bomb,
shattering their love
as quickly as it began.
