The Day I Fell in Love with a Narcissist,
It felt like the world was beginning and ending for the first time.
I was everything and nothing in one breath.
I began that day in her breath.
Not fashioned from the rib of man,
Begot by the lips of woman.
Her breath said I want.
Simultaneously, my body said please, heart murmured hello,
mouth whispered kiss me.
She said, this is dangerous,
I already have a somebody.
I traced I don’t care in a triangle across her lips
Kissed it down her body.
The day I fell in love with a narcissist
She stopped kissing me hello
Used my armfuls of I miss you
to construct a ship of you’re too emotional
Then sailed off
Leaving gunpowder kegs of this is normal
So every time I tried to follow
My heart set fire to normal and blew to pieces
This is normal
The day I fell in love with a narcissist
She taught me self-destruction was as normal as building a wall of “too-emotional”
to hide from feeling
Because for her
it was.
