    She's got you wrapped around her finger
    And you're not even aware
    Of her emotional blackmail
    She doesn't even care

    One day hateful, the next loving
    Rouncd and round the cycle spins
    Round and round your thoughts get twisted
    Until you're not aware

    Congratulations. You're her puppet now

    Written from how I feel right now. It's like my sister's the pupper master, and my brother and Mum are her puppets

    A solid metaphor for a maniupulater and the manipulated. :) I think the words and the imagery are strong enough that they don't need the emphasis of boldface, italics, underlining...Just my 2 cents.

    I agree with Acy. The words can stand by themselves. They don't need any extra attention drawn to them. I think it takes away from the power as so much attention is diverted to the words with emphasis you miss the impact of the writing as a whole. I know what you are alluding to as I have been there.
