Manipulator Underneath My Flesh...

I seem to have a habit
of pushing people
to their limits...
Yet I dont really care...

They say to me,
"watch yourself, girl",
but I dont think they get
That I'm too busy watching them...

I wait for a slip-up,
wait for them to fall...
I shed my skin, my facade,
just to show you all...

I am made for survival,
roughened by abuse...
But, darlin', my smoothness
is used to abuse you...

Im the Manipulator,
youre nothing but a pawn...
Men think they are always on top;
boy, do they have it wrong...

I'm worse then they guys,
all the ones that you hear
that cheat on this girl with this guy
that swear the guy "had drugged his beer".

Because me, Im too slick.
Im the chick you only see
but once rumors spread
you never truely believe...

could ever do something like that...

I've learned from the best,
Im a great learner, dont you know?
Lies and heartbreaks arent new to me,
all the guys just come and go...

See, I guess I'm kinda a disease,
or maybe more like a parasite...
Pandora's box, all those monsters,
locked up in me real tight...

Its amazing though, 'cause honestly,
I dont look like who I am...
Its like, its a never ending disguise
that I cant take off at the end...

But hell, why should I?
It helps me do what I do...
It lures you in, with its soft looks,
as I, the real me, manipulates you...

Wow Im, is the pic of Michael Jackson? Oh, how I love him. An icon forever in my heart. This write I can so relate and reading it reminded me of those days. Yes, to survive. We survived our childhood. Did they really think we would not know how to do the best and set up all the rest? Oh, please. Such fools. Yet for me never the one getting hurt only destroyed me in the end when I finally fell for someone whom hurt me. Never before that and don't you already know never after that. Though now I am honestly getting to tired to play the domineering one all of the time. The one who turns heads and thinking oh, if only you knew. I like this and of course I think you are so cute and sassy. Luvs ya and hugz.

Deadly :) Reading this was like looking at a prism cut in a hundred ways. Showing reflections of a hundred different reflections looking back. The unpredictable element. Its society's fault really, for being so simple-minded. And thinking life is made along a one-way street. They fuck themselves. Hahah thinking they knew it all. How ironic when they find they don't know shit. Enjoyed the read. Should wake up many minds. Those listening anyway.

First its a well written poem that shows your talent . But you are who you are not what others make you . Life is your book so write your own begining and middle and end . Dont let others plan your lilfe for you . Be safe my friend Marie

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
