Mind games

Manipulation pursues us all.

It pries so deep we’re unaware.

Catching the voices,

We refuse to admit are there.

I thought I hid well.

Were my walls not strong?

Confrontation turned around,

And still I end up in the wrong.

How do you steal,

And twist my words,

Avoiding the blame,

Or any possible fault of yours?

Impressive I guess,

To the liars,

the con artists,

and psychopaths.

They hunt their prey,

And zero in,

With tactics so cunning.

Let the mind games begin.
