Malicious Plays by Vindictive Souls

Malicious Plays by Vindictive Souls
Malicious Plays by Vindictive Souls

The worst loss is
when someone else orchestrates it out of malice,
or some jealousy or personal vendetta,
there is no way to undo the lies told,
the despicable actions of narcissistic souls
who found us a threat and acted upon it out of self-interest.

Mud sticks and people are often too easy in believing lies,
when truth is so evident, abundantly proven, but to no avail,
as malicious people gather support any way they can,
their lies and manipulation so sincere,
hapless souls believe them,
for it is so easy to despise and blame.

Tomorrow is my best friends birthday,
he is ninety years old, and instead of being by his side
as I have been for over thirty years,
he has been taken away to live elsewhere,
the move and segregation deliberate and pointed,
out of jealousy and concerns of siblings losing inheritance money.

I have cared for and supported both my friend
and his wife for many years,
and she turned so swiftly against me, all from her daughters lies,
and I can’t even talk to him, cut off on every level,
my heart broken and still raw, after all those years of my giving,
time and attention to their growing needs, as they got older.

These people were my in-laws,
and not their own children took care of them, I did,
after divorcing their daughter more than ten years ago,
and still my friend is captive to a narcissist,
too old to fend for himself, too old to contest a woman capable of anything,
and it saddens me so much what she and her daughters have done,
for no real reason.

I sent a card to my dear friend,
to wish him every happiness in his ninety first year of life,
but I doubt he’ll ever receive it,
for that is the price we must pay for those who are heartless
and whose ideals in life are so superficial,
and who blame those who are loved because of their own ineptitude.

I have surrendered and forgiven, to be at peace with all this,
and it no longer keeps me up at night,
but I just hope my dear friend is able to be happy
whatever his circumstances,
for he is much loved and missed every day,
and I will never forget.

    I’m so sorry to read your words with a heavy heart for your dear friend. Vindictive people in our world will always find ways to harm others, no matter what. They thrive on bringing people down, using them for their own gain. Greed and selfishness they have plenty of and will go to great lengths to harm others all for the sake of money. In this case an inheritance. I pray your friend is protected in some way and find others to care for him as you have done all those years Tony. But to lose a good friend like him I know must be a heavy weight for you to carry at this time. Know in your heart that you gave all that you could of yourself to him over those 30 years and that he is very much comforted by that no matter what happens to him. Your soul has to be at rest. Peace my friend.

      Thanks you Vincent for your kind remarks. Yes I am at peace with it, as I’ve done nothing wrong in fact the opposite. People still amaze me with their selfish and vindictive acts, and although I have forgiven their ignorance, I will never forget what they have done to both my friend and myself. Cheers!

    The damage they do can never touch the heart and soul of your dear friend or you, for it is there your love for each other abides. You have a spiritual bond with him, Tony, that will never be broken. Be at peace dear friend. Many blessings to you and your friend. Take care.

    Many thanks Phyllis, I’ve stopped mourning the loss but being his birthday tomorrow, it all hits home again, bringing up those feelings of betrayal and loss. It’s so unfair. Thank you dear friend. Take care.
