      Cheater

Your eyes are cold and icy
Has your heart turned to stone
Is she worth leaving
Your family all alone

You say she is beautiful
But yet so is your wife
Does the empty passion
Compensate for pain and strife

You say when you are with her
You forget the worries of life
But the memory will come back
And cut you like a knife

You will hold the weapon
That stabs you in the back
How could you feel at ease
It's remorse that you lack

When it is all over
You'll hurt foever more
You may have won the battle
But the Devil's won the war

Very good perception of cheating, Indeed it is deserving of a knife in the back. Great poem

 Lucidity is the answer to all problems

Reminds me of a quote that I can't quite remember it goes something like this, "it easier to forgive an enemy who betrays you than a friend who betrays you." great poem, I love the last two lines.

CS*
This is one poem everyone should read prior to taking that cheating step...most have thought about it...even if for only a split second.  Very powerfully done!
