Emotional Incest

Moma's boy confused. At times she tells him that he's the man of the house.

When he doesn't behave she sends him off to his room. He's her son and surrogate spouse.

She never married his dad. A real husband she has never had. He lives the basement life.

Running errands when not eating Cheetos and playing video games. He'll never be fit material to garner a wife.

Bastard by birth. Emasculated, feeling not much self-esteem, self-confidence or self-worth.

Feeling angry and guilty. His life is a mess. After having been a pawn of his mother's emotional incest.

Parenting gone wrong. Promiscuous masculine females having children out of wedlock. Emasculating their sons and becoming the catalyst that produces generations of soft, angry, violent males that never become authentic men. 10 hours ago rhyme
