Now I know how affairs are born.
They come from the heartbroken, the forlorn.
In a marriage where a spouse took for granted,
Their mate has given all and recanted.

Mates with whom children they had.
While only one partner is left to play mom and dad.

The other spouse while still married
decides to lead the single life.
Going up north, hunting, fishing,
Why did he take a wife?

You say you're too tired for the kids,
you worked hard all day.
Yet, I come home from work, cook, clean and with kids, I'll play.

Our son needs a dad to which he can relate.
You'll wait 'till he's bigger, but that will be too late.

I no longer feel valid in marriage, or love.
Mechanical emptiness replaces what was supposed to be sent from above.

So where do I go?, What do I do?
Is divorce the answer?, I'm not sure that's true.

I know for certain, what is to be will be.
This suffering in silence is really killing me.

Well written poem, and while the subject may be all too common, the individual agony incurred is always unique. I am not an advocate of divorce, ...we're glad you posted the poem.
