April 2019 Napowrimo-Day 5

Napowrimo Day 5: Write a poem that incorporates 1)the villanelle form, 2)lines taken from an outside text, and/or 3)phrases that oppose each other in some way.

For the 2nd requirement, I borrowed from my favorite, Taylor Swift (of course) and Ava Max.

Never trust a narcissist.
He called me sweet til I turned psycho.
I believed him.

Charming lips I longed to kiss
A dark heart I thought I could win.
Never trust a narcissist.

He said I kept him full but my dish was
Flavorless. Chocolate cake with fake sugar.
I believed him.

Busied myself to death in the kitchen
Trying to please him. New flavors, exotic desserts.
Never trust a narcissist.

He spat me out and complained I
was no longer sweet, but psycho.
I believed him.

My broken body thirsted for a drop of love
But all he left me was an empty cup.
Never trust a narcissist.
I believed him.
