The rain falls on the petals,
unable to refrain.
Her softness and fragile charm
carry his outburst of emotions.
The pink plush contains all
he pours out
from the lack of recognition
and the fear of being unloved.
There is always such beauty
in their encounter,
almost like a
perfectly perfect parallel.
There is a sense of safety.
She catches him before he falls.
the rain's uncaring always accepts
the petal's exhilarating bloom
and tarnishing lows.
Writer’s note: This is a piece describing two characters who have the traits of vulnerable narcissism and secondary psychopathy, meeting each other’s need in the will of surviving and thriving, and yet the paradox of remaining parallel to each other.
“Grandiose narcissism refers to the openly arrogant and superior presentation, whereas vulnerable narcissism is characterized by conflict between a grandiose and an inferior sense of self, hypersensitivity to criticism, fear of rejection, and a fragile self-esteem.”
“Primary psychopathy is theorized to stem from a core set of manipulative interpersonal traits and deficits in empathy, whereas secondary psychopathy is theorized to develop out of an impulsive/aggressive lifestyle and deficits in emotion regulation.“
