“About three things I was absolutely positive. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him – and I didn’t know how potent that part might be – that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.”
I’m compelled by narcissism
Because riverside I love the vision
And you see the reflection in my eyes
That’s why you can’t stand the goodbyes
Because more than water could ever pretend
Is the us forever without an end
And when you lock gazes with me on the brink
It is so good you don’t even think
To pull back and away
Because you know I’m gonna say
The truth as I see it there
And ask the question; do you care?
Because the eons all command
That I do right by your hand
But to break the stare for a second
Means that you fall into the reckon
And whatever I do and whatever I don’t
All you can see is the won’t
That I hold back and admit
It was you too, wasn’t it?
*** I want to posit the idea that Echo’s obsession with Narcissus in the Greek Myth mirrors Narcissus’ self obsession. As in, is it wrong to love another as an expression of the one self?
