Poem: Narcissism Love

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Narcissism love is about how a man love bombs. He sweeps you off your feet listening to your words, sending texts, buying you gifts for no reason. After conquering you like a trophy he starts devaluing you. He has ready made excuses for his neglect. He rushes forward to find his next conquest.

Narcissism Love

Love bombing is a passion
he does with finesse,
leaving nothing left to chance.

It’s a whirlwind romance,
sweeping her feet off the ground
totally by surprise.

Devoting all his attention towards her,
listening to her every word,
sending thoughtful texts,
giving her gifts for no reason
other than she’s his gal.

Conquering her is his only quest,
winning at all costs is his need,
ultimate success is his trophy.

Once hooked
the adventure winds down,
her value diminishes,
his loving attention fades,
complete with ready made excuses
for his neglect.

A sad existence
never truly feeling love,
only tasting nibbles of it’s sweet nectar,
biding time until the other woman
sees his value.

Throwing caution to the wind
devaluing his trophy,
discarding her into the garbage
with a vengeance,
rushing forward to pursue
another new conquest.
