The Phalanx of Cruelty

A poem about the attacking self

Clever words
Cradled with evil
The cult of projection
The bitterness of a lifetime
Of addiction to empty lovelessness
And abuse dressed as strength and calm
The use and abuse of language to hide shame
The worshipping of those who threaten
The love of those who laugh at pain
The erotic need for manipulation
Self-illusion and clever words
The bitterness of a lifetime
The cult of protection
Cradled with evil
Clever words
