You Knew (short poem)

You knew you could twist me around your finger
You knew you could flip my own words upon me
You taunt and you tease, desire left to linger
You knew you could wait until you had drawn me

Your lies
They fell through
You feigned ignorance
You knew that I knew
You plead repentance


You knew I would stay
I saw through your trap
Just to call out my name
Yet fell into your lap

You knew
Every weakness I had

You knew
I want you so bad

You knew
You’re driving me mad

You knew

Eventually

I would stay

Here

In the darkness





With you

Some people are master manipulators. Let's just say that women who engage in this type of mindgame prey on their victim's goodwill. By the time the guy finds out that he's being manipulated, it's too late and he has already fallen in love. This is my interpretation. I came across this poem in my newsfeed. Nicely done.

It is easy to get trapped...like a spider and a fly. Good poem. Voted up.

Dude...as your wife of almost 15 years your poetry still freaks me out. I guess that's the narcissist in me. You'd never know your a more happy shinny person in real life lol.
