A Boy Who Cried Wolf

This thing was revolutionary
A poetic revision
Of the Devils dictionary

Love - a tool for destruction
A foolish emotion
A chemical conduction

A liar and a cheat
Sanity's conqueror
The hearts defeat

The begging of the end
The closing hour
The defeated win

Man becoming something new
Illogical addition
Into a sum less than two

2 becoming one in deceatful thought
Giving yourself up
For an ideal the fools were taught -

The devil has won the final victory
The wolf in sheep’s clothing
She took a bight and devoured me

I should have been on alert
Love was the main course
And my heart the dessert
