    It takes something special
    to be able to make me smile
    at the drop of a wink...

    it takes something amazing
    to be able to force out the dark
    that is enveloping the way that I think

    it takes something close to a miracle
    to take this heart away from me
    and make it your own...

    and it takes someone incredible
    for me to let down my guard
    and leave my insides shown...

    It takes something terrible
    to know that you do
    all of this to me

    it takes something horrible
    to use that against me
    as a disability

    it takes something so awesome
    with its absolute power
    over all that is in me

    And it takes someone conniving
    to twist that power
    and utterly kill me.

    Wow, that ended so different then I thought it was going to end.

    The great manipulators always use our emotions to gain control and the use them to keep in control. The really sadistic ones use our emotions as a weapon against us.

    That's one of the better poems I have read in a while. Thank you for sharing.
