Narcissistic You, Narcissistic Me

Posted on March 28, 2010. Filed under: Poetry | Tags: , , , , , |

Backup and give me some room.

Leave me alone for a while,
Just don’t go too far.

I need to breathe.
Just let me breathe.

What is it about me that ‘does it’ for you?
Honestly, I want to know.

Do I make you feel good?
As well as I do.
Pander to you and smile on command?

Do I stroke your ego?
As well as I do.
Tell you you’re great and make you feel special?

Is it that perhaps, you want to be like me?
Always asking me how I came to be.
Wanting to know my next move; my every thought.

Is it that you like my uniqueness?
An amazing sight to you, perhaps.
Tell Me!

Why do you want to walk where I walk?
Talk how I talk,
Think the things I think and feel the way I feel?

When sometimes I don’t want to be me.
Though sometimes. Only sometimes!

Because let’s be honest – I am pretty remarkable.
And don’t I know it!

So now tell me…

Hi Starla,

Thanks so much!


Miss Raw – If you need to be told of your ‘you’ let me begin with this, You write beautiful poems that intrigue.

You seem to be able to put a tiny bit of your spirit into each which fills each piece with an ability to evoke a miriad of emotions.

I enjoyed you yet again, that’s what it feels like when I read your work – that you r sharing lil ‘bits’ of you!

Congratulations on aanother successful pieace.

My life goes into these words, so thank you so much for appreciating them!

It means more than you know.

God bless.
