I wrote this poem about a man that I feel very strongly about. He is very attractive, but, of course, you can't judge a book by it's cover.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems - Sad Love Poems

You Are Like The Diamond
You are like the diamond
You glimmer and glow
And shine so brightly
Some, like me, draw close
To feel your warmth, your heat
Only to find none

You are like the diamond
You are bright and strong
But you have no warmth, or love
It's a terrible game
To play with people's hearts
Like mine

You are like the diamond
You will last longer than most
But you will have no love
No warmth to back up that bright light
So what kind of life will it be?
Besides long?

Will you regret it someday?
Regret being so much like the diamond
Regret being so cold
And look for me
A find me gone?
Can I ever leave?

No, I can never leave you
I am drawn to this cold light
This false sense of warmth you give
I keep wishing and hoping
That someday, you will give warmth
But, this will never be

Diamonds last forever

    I just went through something with a guy I've liked for so long. It is love. But he's only interested in being secret friends with me. Not even open friends. In front of others he acts so heartless that I want to die. There's warmth deep within him, but the harsh exterior kills it.
  • Julia
    This poem was sad but true. once you fall in love you put up with alot and hope things change for the best, but if they dont want to, they are like a diamond , stay the same and last 4ever.

    Loved your poem. I don't know whether this poem was written about a narcissist, but, it sure does contain all the right words to describe living life with this type individual. I've lived with a male narcissist for the past 45 years. All I can say to all ladies, is this; if your young yet and happened upon this poem and read it and your current boyfriend comes to mind immediately, run for your life while your still young. Thanks LoveBug, you've captured narcisstic personality disorder and turned it into poetry, beautifully and perfectly.
