In my life, I’ve been intimately involved with four narcissists. I was unaware of this until I began to study this disorder. It explained much of my life. I’m healing this so that now and in any future lives, I will not be involved with anyone with this personality. In 2002, I still loved the man I left, not knowing it is impossible for narcissists to really love. It is an illusion.

Letting Go of the Narcissist, 2002

I will let you go now
as breezes blow
across the green fields
I will let you go now
as anger dies and love erupts
like a once-dormant volcano

I will let you go
to heal your pain,
to find the cure,
to live long enough
that regret is not a word you use.

I will let you go,
knowing I’ve loved you
the best I know how.
I wanted to spend my life with
you sleeping beside me,
night after night,
to feel your skin on mine,
to hear your voice softly
beside me.

I will let you go now to drink or stop,
to hide your true self,
I will let you go, never
to touch your face again.
knowing I will always love you.
