No compassion has he, nor understanding
Accountability shirked, always grandstanding
Rages and threats used as controls and tests
Concocting fantasies about life, love and success
Insinuating the worst about my actions and being
Suspicious of everyone I see, everything I’m doing
Sugar sweet, so sexy, he sets the bait
Indignant when asked to reciprocate
Subterfuge he’s raised to the highest art
Twisting me to his ways, breaking my heart

Discovering this, putting a name to it, having a frame of reference for the actions and most importantly, knowing that NPD has a predatory aspect, has turned on a light in my life.
