The Reputable Friend Is A Narcissistic Lover - Poem by Courtney Sill

And she can be anything you want her to be.
Pain; Agony; Light; Wonder.

We're all just drops of water in a puddle as deep as the ocean.
A puddle as a wide as a quarter.
But as deep as the ocean.
A hole as wide as a quarter,
But as deep as the ocean.

It weighs nothing,
But Oh-My-God does it bring me down.
I'll be anything you want me to be;
Pain, agony, light, and wonderful.
Just tell me what you want me to be.
Tell her what you want her to be.

I'll be your best friend.
But oh Goddess don't you dare.
No don't you dare ask me.
Don't ask her to be your lover.
She can be anything wonderful.
Wonderful maid; Wonderful slave; Wonderful Girl; Wonderful Friend.
But she'll never be a Wonderful Lover.

No friend, I beg you, I plea you.
Some lines can't be crossed.
Yes, yes you can step over the hole.
Yes you can step over that puddle.
As deep as the ocean. As deep as the ocean.
But do not step over that line.

She can only do so much.
This bit of advice I'll give you;
The Reputable Friend is a Narcissistic Lover.
Rythmes speak better than any words I assure.

Se can try, oh yes I can try.

But she'll only eat your heart out.
Like a worm burrowing a hole as deep as the ocean.
Like water filling a puddle as deep as...

Drop.Drop.Drop.
Drop by Drop, blood from that hole.
As wide as a quarter.
In your chest.
We're all just drops of blood in this wound as deep as the ocean.
She'll hold the gun for only a moment after your dead.
And then she'll cry.

Because she knows, oh yes I know.
That she was such a good friend.
She was such an amazing friend.
But she can only ever be,
A deadly lover.

By being with her you'll lose your life,
Don't ever expect more than a reputable friend,
From the Narcissistic Lover.


I'll only ever be a narcissistic lover...
