Within every relationship you always find one. There is always someone who is manipulative and sometimes can be crawl. Also this is a way of controlling and the only way to gain power within a relationship. These sort of people are weak and cannot face there own fears so they impose it on others to cover up who they truely represent. The lowest scums on Earth.

People who cheat and lie

Are the culprits to all arguments

Listen hard and well

Soon your come to tell

Sends a time bomb a ticking

Only blame they are flicking

They draw your in

Only you believe

Your the one committing sin

They manipulate your mind

And turn you into an aggressive fool

Now they hold your very all

They’ll knock your senses

Until you fall

Diverting all they’ve done

They think they have you under their thumb

Only pain leads to strength

The hero at the end

Is you when you come to mend

Listen hard and well

Soon you will come to tell

    I know very well what it’s like to be in a relationship with a manipulative person.

  • Sharif Ishnin on Jan 8, 2010

    Agreed. You can’t avoid not meeting such people.

    Well done. These people have many lessons to learn.

    If manipulative people knew how obnoxious they really are, perhaps they wouldn’t do what they do. They are on a power trip. It’s funny how many girls and women are involved in controlling relationships with manipulative and abusive men. But some of them don’t know how to break away because they have very low self esteem. Also, I think that manipulative people should be put in their place. You might not get anywhere at the beginning since they are always right and never wrong, but eventually they will get the point and realize that they can’t walk all over you.
    Great topic!

    I see my ex-wife in this piece.

  • CA Johnson on Jan 8, 2010

    You are so right. I know quite a few manipulative people who are just like the way you described.

    I really liked the poem. It explains what I have been going through. I have finally found out for sure that my ex has only been trying to get what he wants all this time and cares nothing about anyone else.
    My ex for a long time has been trying to put me down and make me feel guilty for every little thing I do and never admits to what he has done. He thinks it is my fault he left me for somone else when I was pregnant, its my fault he gets drunk and high and misses work, its my fault he slept with my best friends aunt, it\’s my fault he hits me over and over again, and its my fault he covered my mouth to keep me from breathing.
    I am not going to let him have power over me anymore. i have to stay away and I can not fall for his fake crap anymore. He is not sorry, never has been, and probably never will be.
