Through lips sewn together
you speak to me
a trail of subtle, sickening lies
all spilling down

Through eyes glassy like the moon
you gaze upon me
if a crocodile tear can shine in the moonlight
yours can sparkle, fooling even the stars

Through uninspired fingertips
you lap me with your words
your luscious lips curling
into a vicious snarl

Through outstretched arms
you reach out to grasp anything
anything that you can manipulate
so you come out on top

Through a feral stance
you rise above me
ready to take on
the world

Manipulation beyond despair
Is in so many people here.
So much talent in there:
Your poem, your soul.
Keep it up, let it grow.
