Anger and apathy are what they evoke,
Boastful braggart, to whom boundaries are meant to be broke,
Calm confabulator, calculative and cunning,
Dubious and deceitful,
Envious eyes that begrudge you anything,
Flying monkeys are part of their team,
Insinuating and implying, it’s all in the wording,
Jealously guarding, in case you’re onto their scheming,
Knowledgable or so they like to think,
Lies, lies, lies
Narcissistic, not just a neat little label,
Oppress your soul, if you let them,
Perpetrator, that leaves you…
Questioning everything and
Rage-filled, when the
Sadistic sociopath, who engages in
Temper tantrums, tyrannical even, and then
Ups the ante, to become the… *drum roll…
Xxed (axxed) out of your life, is where they deserve to be,
You only live once,
Zzzzz, tired of these games.
