the narcissist: a study

notice the patterns – the lack of control. the rage. the constructed intelligence, beauty, the placement of pedestal, and appearance to all of success with material presence. it’s a gilded creature.

see the missing self from the I – lift it when there’s a Maybe that presents – underneath, you will find, there is always a fault.

study how the YOU caused the friction. not the I. the YOU did it. feel the burn as it roughly scrapes your skin.

it will break the bonds with other like-bodies that have evolved differently – destroy the communication with unabashed ire and snap it in two – rejoining is nearly impossible, as it will disallow any other solutions – there is only one – it is only capable of an exact match.

constantly refill the bucket it lives in. speak softly and gently. always reinforce the seams of the vessel – or the contents will leak out.

observe how a virus sized infraction will cause a rejection and appearance of injury. then stand back and wait for the reaction. implosion or explosion. either can happen. both are nuclear events.

watch when another body comes close to it’s territory – the vibrations are intense and easy to visualize – the colour may even change to black. hear it scream.

when set loose it moves over and through its lesser opponents. measure the trail of debris in its wake. the volume is quite remarkable and it crows its achievements with reckless abandon.

it takes what it can on the way to fuel its power – with no visual emotion, empathy or regard other than mating with its own goal. the path is straight and narrowly focused. there is no room for deviation – it has been carefully mapped on the DNA. it dutifully ignores the contributions of its encounterings.

absolutely no trace of giddy movement will be found for the success of another being which has crossed and survived or somehow surpassed the interactions of this species. the entire structure will in fact, appear to turn a shade of vermillion then a vibrant chartreuse when presented with the betterment of another.

wholly – it is best to avoid an encounter with the narcissist. by all means – examine it from afar – but try to understand without touching it.
