I feared you’d
Take advantage
Of my better angels
But you said not to fret

That was the beginning
Of the ending of us…
Trapped by promises
I held out hope yours
Would be honored…
You lied straight faced

Was my response that
Of a gentleman
Or just a fool?
It took awhile to decide
But I know what I am…
Now I know what you are, too

      It happens too often…it’s a sure bet when the other person is narcissistic. It isn’t always immediately apparent, contrary to the stereotype.
