Narcissists' Hearts of Steel

Updated on July 23, 2017

Poetry and Stories to help raise awareness, and insight, into intrusive, and dangerous, personality disorders, and to encourage healing.

Illusion

Restoration

The beginning of this poem sounds gloomy as evil creates its path of destruction, and no bystanders speak up for the victim, or against the deceiver, for fear of retribution. Instead, the abuser is actually glorified with applause as the victim is left alone and hated. But, the truth ends up revealing itself, as it always does, and evil takes the same harsh beating as it had inflicted onto others, (though it had the opportunity to change, but refused). Finally, peace ensues! All is restored!

Final Countdown

Armor of God

Hearts of Steel



Hearts of steel?

Brutally real.


Awaken their soul?

No, black as coal.


Conscience seared?

Yes, exactly as feared.


Self-reflection denied?

No inner-core to guide.


Essence shallow?

Actually, completely hollow.

Be Still


Truth unknown?

Only tactics to hone.


Evil beneath mask?

Questions never asked.


Nightmares arrive?

Surreal, but alive!


Skills perfected?

Yes, and actions protected.


No natural-laws?

Still, riveting applause.


Bystanders merely lurk?

Being bypassed, the perk.

Light


Dark art finesse?

Yet, none bear witness.


Injuries sustained?

Yes, and victims disdained.


Recovery ahead?

Yes! But, darkness remains dead.


Good will arise?

Never thought otherwise.

Faith


Final call?

Evil hits the wall.


No more fear?

Yes, Peace is here!

Take delight in Truth and Light!

Good Vs. Evil

Do you have faith that one day Hope, Truth, and Peace will ensue?

      The Dangerously Gratifying Trance

      She thought she had found her prince,

      but he turned out to be a dreadful frog;

      He told her she was his sweet princess,

      but he treated her worse than a rabid dog.

      When she told him the relationship was over,

      he became vicious and smeared her name;

      It further validated her reasons for leaving him,

      and she could finally see all of his toxic shame.

      His Red Flags had been shown to her early on,

      and viewed by her very clearly in this dance.

      But, she chose to hide from every one of them,

      because being in-love put her in such a gratifying trance.

      But, now she is so much stronger;

      She is cloaked with the armor of self-love and self-respect.

      She figuratively boils every new frog she meets,

      and makes sure the past ones do not return to reinfect.

      There is a lot in this poem. I believe "Evil" is a form of Mental Illness, which is prevalent in people. Everyone should be counseled or go to Therapy for whatever is bothering them. Therapy should be common. Peace and Order will Prevail when we address our Mental Illnesses.

      Excellent poem, Tamara.

      I like your healing dove. I will need some drawings for my book and so one day I may call on you, God's willing. Peace.

      Reminds me of sitting on coffee bars back in the 60's when anyone could take the mike and read their poetry. There was some great stuff read in those bars back then....a little percussion for emphasis.....that's a long way around to saying I loved this.

      Tamara, you have very well depicted the essence of fear (darkness) and enlightment (light).
