Narcissist

Ponytail by Last Exit

She self-observes,
she is beautiful,
a looking-glass of pure perfection,
black swirls of hair ‘gainst fair complexion

Self-absorbed she valourises,
Recognises desirability epitomised,
sylph-like, dainty light and airy,
the pretty-looking f***ng fairy,
contrary to appearance
her ugliness is in her vices,
she entices passing souls
to taste her spices,
hot she is and seals the fate
of those who yield to sultry kiss,
and simmering, full of hate
of those she despises
slices visceral  and heart excises.

She somatises stolen hearts;
deep underground in her darkest places,
she savours it, the heart that is,
it thumps in her, the heart that is,
naked beating heart plucked out
with sultry kiss on willing faces;
driven to destroy she romantacises
love freely given is free for taking,
taking riven minds and hearts forsaking.

She departmentalises,
subdivides her life in seamless layers,
compartmentalises lurid love affairs
mind all neat and tidy.
Self-absorbed she valourises,
recognises the perfection she epitomises
opens up her cruel heart
and slowly pulls others lives 
apart.

Wow, that is quite a character study. Self absorbed and cruel. Not someone I would care to meet but well created.

That's one scary lady - hope she's pure imagination...

That's exactly what I was gonna say!! Especially that part about valorizing--or what ever.
I saw this prompt, and knew you'd find your way here. :)
Love your poem (and my thesaurus)! I probably didn't spell that right.

I believe this poem is about my first wife. Hope you didn't know her and only observed from afar.

Deep words and a scary character indeed.

Something about wickedness appeals to us deep down to us!

Into my computer file, "Writing by Others," containing only special favorites your wondrous poem has been saved. I cannot believe how perfectly you described this woman. And I learned a new word valourize). :)

Eek! This reads like a frightening fairy tale or a witch's spell! I love the repetition. Really drives the message home.

Wonder where exactly runs the fine line between natural egoism everyone possesses and narcissism. A beautiful piece of writing.
