I could be having a calm
and stressfree day, but as soon
as I pick up your voicemail,
there you are weeping about
And to be truthful I be thinking
that it’s all a manipulative
front you put on
It’s as if you enjoy ruining
peoples day
I’m trying so hard to make
it day by day, to move forward,
to heal, to grow stronger
but then you call and it’s
always about you
weeping and weeping
Telling me that you love me,
making it very hard to believe

Past suitors
I wouldn’t have given
the time of day
Here, I am giving you
the time of day
and you’re not reciprocating

What’s wrong with you
What’s wrong with me
What’s wrong with this

The others were worth
ten times
the time of day
than you’ve ever been
since I’ve known you
Yet I chose you to break
my heart

Why do I feel so unworthy
Is this my karma
When anyone else would
feel lucky to have me

#narcissists #emotionalabuse #neglect


Once again I put myself out there like a dumb ass fool to an ex girlfriend of mine (a narcissist)

This is what I texted:

“I need someone to love me full time. Not just when they feel like it. I need someone who thinks about me all the time, not just on occasion. I need someone who calls and text me and makes me feel as if I’m important to them. I deserve more attention than you’re willing to give. And when and if you’re willing to give love, you gotta prove it.”

And this was her response left on my voicemail:

“You’re selfish.”

(along with a few other harsh words)

Fuck it!



Being there
unconditionally for you,
but you never for me
stresses me to the core,
but hurts me even more
This is one reason
we can’t be together
Your sickness is why
it can’t get any better
Now I’ve gotta build this wall
and build it so tall
That even others can’t climb
As a result of the fragments
you’ve left behind

#narcissism #love #heartache



When I started my blog back in 2015 it wasn’t initially all about poetry and “feelings” it was about how my narcissistic husband abused me (at that time).

I’ve drifted far away from that and I’m kinda upset at myself about it. I’m sort of a people pleaser and I changed what my blog was about beacause it appeared that people didn’t seem to accept, handle or turned a blind eye to what I was going through.

Over the past few years as I read other dear friends blogs (or who I’d call a dear friend) I admire thier guts for devulging some of the most deepest and most personal heartfelt realities. And I’m upset at myself for having chosen not to do the same anymore.

I need to share and explain what is happening behind the scenes of the poetry that I write because each poem has a story that drove me to write it in the first place, do you feel me?

I gotta be me y’all. Accept my story (and write poems as well) without judgement…
Thank you all
