The Last Straw

She said she had stopped loving me long ago Now, her goal was to make me miserable, Not the least of kind affections does she show And her villainy is far more than considerable, It seemed to start after our first year of bliss Which is something I will surely always miss. Enough! Enough, I say, of this utter travesty For it is clear enough, she is worthless to me! written December 15, 2021

This was my first (and probably only) attempt at a vaasokht. I'm not surprised that I rarely see the form used on Soup. Boy, when he turned on her, he really turned in the nastiest way!

Delice, be sure to read up on the vaasokht. It is an interesting format, which I had never tried before.

When a relationship breaks down its best to go your separate ways. Tom

Sort of reminded me of my first (ex-) wife. I thought I'd give this form a try. Thanks, Tom, for your sage comment.
