The Manipulator

I watched her spin a ball of silk
out of something like a Heart
A ball as strong as
Walls of Steel,
and whom
with tenderness did Part

I watched her pull the Heartstrings
so delicately Undone-
At Once
-they were unravelled,
then
Wound up just as fast

It took my breath away,
and then
It punched me in my gut
-just after that I pitied her
but soon
settled sweetly in Disgust

The Manipulator
