Don’t get too flattered by my obsequious praise;
Excessive flattery serves my needs, and flattering YOU is flattering to ME;
So why stop there? Stoking your Ego and acting sycophantic elevates myself-esteem into something approaching maniacal glee,
So I can toy with you and feel good about me. I manipulate, so don’t waste your hate on a Joker like me!
I was merely playing Poker with you!
I understand if you can’t forgive me; I don’t deserve it. Just consider I’m claiming your mental space, so if you want vengeance and peace, no matter how I’ve played you…
You simply must forgive me.
