Miss Fix It


Miss Fix It



She is her successes,

she is her failures.

The empath and the narcissist.


Joint innocently –

Miss Fixer Upper needed work,

Miss Fix It needed work.


Told innocently –

Chitter chatter about this and that.

Similar paths in some sense.


Miss Fixer Upper only heard:

whatever Miss Fix It had,

Miss Fixer Upper hadn’t.


Revealed innocently –

Miss Fixer Upper fished for compliments,

got lampooned instead.



her tortured carnivorous heart,

boiled within,

her narcissistic supply,

depleted within…

but a new victim’s vignette to bait!



her tortured vegan heart,

boiled within,

her giving nature,

toiled within…

but successfully repaired!
