Bending Spoons














He used his mind to bend her will…

subliminal messaging,
unrelenting repetition;
gradually molding her into
his vision of perfection.

Sometimes there is no escape,
only resignation….then realization
that revenge bides in the shadow.

  12. I agree with Enigmatic Soul that it's a clever poem with (for me) a rather delicious blend of the dark and the light.
