Dulcet tones

​Dulcet tones,  soft and sweet as honey

Lull my senses , don’t sound phoney

Eloquent words your stock in trade

Only when I listen, I feel the blade

Reasonable words cover dark cynicism 

Honed sentences cover barbs of criticism 

How can those Dulcet tones

Make me feel like they are breaking bones

Am I just being sensitive

Or is my darling a narcissist?
