Theodora (Theo) Onken
Every Man's Erotomaniac~
She is so full of herself - always
So sure that another feels passion for her
He's all but a stranger - in reality perhaps an aquaitence
Yet, she is positive his love is deep and pure;
The question remains - is she psychotic?
A Schizophrenic or victim of a bi-polar mania attack?
She is sure that he 'secretly admires and loves her'
Declaring his love for her through signals, words or media fact;
She willingly returns the imagined affection...
With a picture or words of a most sensual prose
He - the unwitting recipient scratches his head in wonder
Hoping that her delusions would surely soon close;
She does not accept his denial of affection! ! !
She reason's in her deluded way - it must be a ploy
To conceal still - his real and forbidden love for her
Thus - she continues to live with her much deluded joy;
This is but another case of: de Clerambault's Syndrome -
Named after a french psychiatrist who wrote a comprehensive view
He covered this diseased Psychotic state completely...
It is called: 'Les Psychoses Passionelles' -It's accurate & true;
By, Theodora Onken
Just another write on mental illness**
From Psychosis to borderline personality disorder - like psychopathy
Fascinated by all of it;
This is a true story. She continued to do it again and again - before she got help...she could never take a hint - never thought about the fact that she was being foolish...i did not know her - only about her
** Would also like to add - that this situation is oft time reversed - and the erotomaniac is a male -; Seen more often in women; there are case history's involving men as well.
