To repetively invoke cp2k, especially if just the coordinates change,  
you can look at building cpshell (make cpshell VERSION=sopt) that  
produces a cp2k_shell.sopt executable that can be called interactively.
For it there is a python wrapping script in tool/cp2kController.
You can also use the f77_interface, it isn't so difficult.
Any of these solutions let you calculate the topology just once (so  
maybe even the internal topology builder can cope with it), and then  
change coordinates and get updated energy/forces.
