When Love Is a Lie
He’ll berate, belittle, insult, and destroy you….
Deceive, devalue, idolize, and ignore you…
He’ll block you then stalk you,
‘til you do what he taught you
His prize for The Lie is a chance to discard you
He’ll seduce and betray, confuse and neglect you
Without a single regret, he intends to infect you
In the blink of an eye, he’ll all but erase you
His venomous words are meant to disgrace you
He buried your soul down a dark rabbit hole
And planned your demise from the moment he met you
So, what do you feel? Do you know why you cry?
Is it fear that consumes us when love is a lie?
Is it hard to let go if it’s all that we know?
If the bad that he is, is as good as it gets
We must look to our heart for it’s time to reflect
Make him fade into black from the fear of attack
I am you, you are me, & we’ll never be back
Bitter and broken, on the wind it was spoken
From a dream, we’ve awoken
From a dream, we’ve awoken
A Painful, false Illusion of Love indeed…
A painful illusion
All the things I can’t have.
All the dreams I can’t save.
All the troubles I can’t halve.
All the burdens under which I cave.
All the horizons I can never meet.
All the issues I can’t beat.
All the grudges I can’t unseat.
All the anger my mind continues to heat.
All my jewels that on me can’t shine.
All my happiness that can’t be my smile.
All my melodies that I can’t rhyme.
All my love I can’t call mine.
I can have everything, but why can’t
Everything be you ?
Why can’t I get what I feel is due ?
You had to walk out of my life,
Right on cue.
Just when I wanted to start a new
Just when I surrendered my soul to you
Turning your back you’ve left me now
But someday your ego will bow

Beautiful sentiment, beautiful words 🌹❤️
Beside the deep well of pain we faltered
We only saw black space
A place of defeat and undoing
So it was hard to surrender
Fear enters our heart
For we know we may not survive
In the same form we had before
And yet this descent
Is the price of our transformation
The place where skin is stripped from flesh
And flesh is stripped from bone
Without skin and flesh
Our bones rattle in those deeper spaces
Of wounding and remembering
But there is at all times
A far deeper alchemy going on
For the very thing that strips us
Helps us form new skin and flesh
After wounds have turned to scars
We are wiser, leaner and older
With the weathering of our years
Our hearts, hopefully softer
From the experience
Our soul consents to the process
By which we are changed
And further along the path

Been here, done this… Currently a work in progress in the process of healing the pain from loving a narcissist…
You pull me in
I am erased
Filled with feelings
That have nothing to do with me
You use me as a mirror
You won’t feel so lost
But I will be
When you leave
I will be drained
Since you suck
All the life out of me
Yet persist with the illusion
I am used
Later to be rejected
Since I reflect back to you
Aspects of yourself
You cannot bear to see
I am not who you thought I was
Because in me
It scared you to see
What you could not bear to face
I am lost in longing
That I think is for you
But really it is for someone
Who will see my true self
Since you are only reflecting back
All that is not me
I feel frustration and utter despair
You don’t like my…

They Speak of God and Angels,
Diseases of the Soul
Powerlessness and Surrender In their Stories I was told
They Speak about Forgiveness
And cleaning up the past
About a thing called humility, Will bring us serenity at last
They speak of self inventories,
To Review Ourselves each day
To promptly clean up anything, that crops up along the way
They speak of Prayer and meditation
To seek and one will find
For this is the only way to heal the body, soul and mind
They speak of an awakening,
Your sprit to come alive
To keep your feet moving, Will help you to survive
They speak of 12 steps
that will lift us from despair
To carry Gods message of Hope, Love and Care
They tell us to believe
In a Power we can not see
Honest, Open-minded and willing we must be
I listen and I learn
From what they have to say
Now I speak to share, That there is a better way
They speak of Gratitude,
From being throughout from the start
I now know that it works, Cuz I feel God in my heart! ❤
