My Narcissistic Friend

My narcissistic friend
Just told me that
Her favorite game is chess
Because it forces me
To watch her every move

  1. Asked curiously…. what is it that finds you choosing a friend with a narcissistic essence? πŸ™‚

      I am a flawed human being that tries to befriend everyone, even those who may seem less deserving. I always give people the benefit of the doubt, and then it feels too late to get out when I should. But that is only my answer to a question asked curiously. Truly, thanks for reading and commenting!

      • I trust you realize the inquiry was in a light-hearted vein, Ben. I applaud and admire your “flaw.”

      • bejamin4 says:

        Yes, I thought so :). I never thought otherwise. I always appreciate your comments and you taking the time to read my work. It really means a lot. I hope to explore your blog more in the future.

    At least she understands herself, and your favorite game is?

  3. jadedmess says:

    Oh dear, good thing chess is ‘one’ of my favorite games, not my favorite. Whew πŸ˜‰

  4. I never learned how to play chess, lol….but wouldn’t want my every move to be watched even if I did πŸ˜‰

    great words and poem. It’s important lines of words!

  7. Phen Weston says:

    Such a well thought out poem. Such a great theme and how you’ve worded it. Beyond perfect my friend πŸ™‚

  8. Miranda Stone says:

    With friends like these, who needs enemies? Very clever, Benjamin, as always.

  9. Wonderful, as always. Found myself nodding and smiling at this one.

  10. Rob McShane says:

    nice one….good take on narcissism – you only get to see those she thinks are her best….and only on the ones on the board!! πŸ™‚

    ^Standing Ovation^

  12. Johnny Ojanpera says:

    Benjamin, you have already won the game if you have identified your opponent as a narcissist. Winning means you cannot win. πŸ˜‰

    Oh yea, now that is narcissism. And maybe a huge need for acceptance. Maybe a little self-absorbed. πŸ™‚
