Unseen Wounds

Portray yourself powerfully preying

on the weak only cowards take

pride trampling those

who cannot speak

silent they have lost their voice

too down trodden to fight they

see the maze the obstacle course

use wealth tower above the rest

using fame, fortune, looking down

on the poor as useless

you have no spine, jelly fish words

stinging tentacles wrapping around

prey squeezing them lifeless

until they lose consciousness

clammy coldness of your words

every breath aim to hurt never

tender words of comfort

to console

reaching depths of the soul so

potent each word carefully placed

the final phrase close the trap

you so skillfully laid.
