Ego~Narssistic {May 2021 CONTEST}

Entwine two cobras
Ego and narcissist
which one would devour who
the two are almost
but not really equal
Dr Jekyll or Mr Hyde

I know a dearest
one behind the other
everyday hide
then it made me decide
to alter my ego to where only narcissists go

I laid besides a swimming pool
not accepting I couldn’t swim
then stripped to birthday suit
smelt me and confided
the beauty that I saw
never ever existed
let me ride

I turned over and into the water
no more ego nor even a shadow

winters snow did freeze
perhaps another birth may be
but never anyone like me

Free verse

No critique...just everything I expect from a poet like you: simple in structure, layered with meaning and vision, powerful in timelessness.

lovedly! I guess you aren't about to give up the title just yet! ~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

to those
who consider me as
lol Gee yes its still EGO-ME
