Trifecta week 111 – Manipulate

This week Trifectra asks for 33 to 333 of your own words inspired by the following word – MANIPULATE.

MANIPULATE

To touch, to mould, to change, to incubate,

To scold, to punish, to bully, to manipulate.

To bruise, to harm, to fix, to educate,

The perfect person in which you cultivate.

To have and to hold, till death you illustrate.

But now your left with no one to intimidate,

Because leaving was the last thing you ever anticipate.

You try to change things, you try to communicate.

But the damage you did, you wont ever vindicate.

– THE END –

—George Orwell

The road to hell is paved with works-in-progress.”

Liz’s Quote Of The Day!

Keep a small can of WD-40 on your desk—away from any open flames—to remind yourself that if you don’t write daily, you will get rusty.”
