Narcissistic misery


flowing from my pen,
inky music accords
honour to my thoughts,
consisting of
narcissistic misery
with hardly any words.
chronicle of catastrophe
mingles with the blood of
my prosody.

Wow, I am always impressed how you take mere words and string them together to form something with so much depth and emotion. Well done, sweet friend!

Narcissistic misery is what school teachers get when they stubbornly refuse to behave themselves.

I admire your phrasing. "Narcissistic misery" is clever.

Jimmy boy, what are you doing on my blog? Go back to your peanut farm?

puerileuwaite: Thanks. Isn't it what happens most of the times?
