Gone too far

Perturbed by you, my family and friends.
I’m losing. Propaganda is told and sold
So cheaply, wantonly squandered against my trust.
To never fight for life together or again.
Is immoral pleasure gained from your lies?
It’s unexpectedness swift, so cutting inside.

The outcome real to me if not to you,
I feel the hurt, the closing love we knew
One time from birth, no more is ours to share.
To drink from your well, shallow with love I found
Flavours too strong and harsh to drink for long.
I tried and failed will nevermore wonder why.

    I think many will relate to times like this in their lives. Much for the reader to ponder in your words. Congratulations on making it through the first round in the contest. Good luck in the finals! Karen

    Way to go Paul!!! It is fun to try the stretch by writing different poetic forms. Have you checked out the member contests? I think you would enjoy entering. Participating has taught me a lot about poetic forms. Keep writing. God Bless you and welcome to Poetry soup. Love, Dane
