Alchemy of Betrayals

They gotta have it, the crave bites hard
The reach of squalid power, mottled decadence 
Raucous minds, the graveyard of illicit victories
Lives bargained on the dark side of promises
Trusts betrayed, turning cartwheels on honesty
Walk confused, too frozen to face realities
Minds stoned on long cherished hopes
All get bartered on wiles wrapped tight
The colors of betrayals drip red and sleepless
Careless ashes in an unsuspecting hearth
The turmoil it wreaks is all too rabid
As innocent lives get compromised over and over…

    Stinging, harsh truths. You describe the way of the world today, in some cases. Thankfully, not ALL of the world is so bad. Spot on with this writing!

    i had to read over three or four times just grasping the insight you have. it's a fight with evil. this is my first time reading you. i'll be sure to look for something else you have writen. maybe it will be just as expressive.
