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;

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.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
