Coming up on the first anniversary of my last day with narcissistic B. (Oct. 11, 2013), I thought this poem on the “myth of the narcissist” quite apropos as today I kick off my 11-pt series on triggers. Here’s to you Gina Fant-Saez. You must’ve known my ex…..
by ~Gina Fant-Saez~
You said the most beautiful things
and sounded evolved and sincere
With intentions unquestionably true
And ambitions insightfully clear
I used to bathe in your words
believed you hungry for change
and willing to finally work
for all the things that you craved
it was a beautiful dream
to see you free and alive
your heart soaring in love
your body floating with mine
But you said what I wanted to hear
in language all gilded in grace
carefully crafted to match
the beauty I saw in your face
Now I see you’re a beautiful shell
With hollowing darkness inside
And you’ve grown so used to the dark
That now you’re afraid of the light
Lacking the courage to face
Your mirror of careless mistakes
The years and money you’ve wasted
Destruction left in your wake
Now you’re sorry you’ve hurt me again

A former mistress (26 years, on-and-off) describes the good, the bad, and the ugly of her long-term affair. Conclusion: Affairs aren't necessarily destructive if kept in the correct perspective. Our experience enhanced BOTH our marriages.
That is, until his marriage ended and we began to love each other. When the affair morphed into a relationship, well, that's when it stopped being fun for me.
For 26 yrs we luxuriated in implicit Trust. When B. cheated on ME, it was the first time another person came into our relationship besides our respective spouses.
We have now irrevocably split.
