Pin Wielder

What a fool I made of you!

Romance, love -

they’re just words, you know.

Words that anyone can say

to trick and to twist

and maintain such a

powerful grip

while all the time the one thing that is in their head is...

POWER!

So naive, so innocent,

I almost felt a twinge of guilt

as I strode in

and lied my way into your heart.

It was really so easy

to reach right on in

and rip it out -

tear it apart.

“I love you,” I’d say and maybe I’d mean it in some twisted way.

Better not to look too deep,

to search to hard,

for those lies of mine were never made

to withstand close scrutiny.

A pin in your eye and the real me

you will not be able to know,

to see.

Be aware that it is going to hurt;

this transformation

you’ll go through as I wield the needles,

stab the pins,

crush you and break you until nothing is left

but an entirely malleable

bit of a mess.

Only then will you be able to truly play the part

and possibly even

win over my heart -

when you do what I say

and you think as I do,

but of course there’ll be nothing remaining of you.

A doll full of pins

will put pay to even the slightest defiance -

will guarantee compliance

as you become a subservient extension of me.

You, a slave,

to the masterful one -

who you’ll never escape, not now it’s begun;

this romance of shadow and love born of pain

where you’ll offer your heart up

again and again

until nothing of it does remain.
