A Lie…

When we found each other again that night online.
My heart skipped a beat
As you told me I was genuine.
You told me how nice it was to be near a soul so sweat.
But that weekend you had a one-night stand
A five-month lie that I will never understand.
Excuses you build to defend what you’ve done wrong.
You told me it was nothing, that I’m the only one.
All I see now is this tear-stained face.
Short breaths and sobs,
And a heart with an empty space.
How many more lies must I endure?
How many more broken hearts
Before I walk out that door?

I wish for once you’d stop and see,
This unbearable pain that you’ve caused in me.
Why do I love a man who I can’t trust?
Why am I going to take him back,
And take the chance of another night like that?

Owie! Babeluv!  Such a painful poem.
How many times does one take a cheater
back?  Not more than once, if at all.

We women and men should not walk around
with "victim" stamped upon our foreheads!

The pain you are feeling will barely heal,
when into someone else's arms he will
steal.

A lover who has the gall to tell you about
a one night stand at all. Using your for
a confessional board -----begging you for
forgiveness, and your heart does bleed.

This kind of man - you don't deserve, and
you certainly do not need.

Once in awhile in a long relationship one
of the pair will make a grave error.  That
you must weigh against all time, and know
the one you are with will never ever do it
again.  

Cheating is such a hurtful thing. Once, maybe
a mistake is made -- but anymore than that,
you will never be able to trust him/her
and that is a fact.  Without trust there
can be no relationship.

The truth is he never cheated on me. This happend when we met. We liked each other, but we weren't involved. He didn't tell me till it was already marked a lie, if you know what i mean. The point is, he didn't have to tell me, but he did. I don't want to get into detail, but i trust him still because i believe hurting me wasn't his intentions. I know he loves me with all his heart and soul...and that's all i really need. Thank you for your comment. It's nice to hear caring, inspirational words every now and then.
