Adultery- The Pain

Is life fair?
It seems like no-one cares

How far would you go?
For the things you love so?

We had love for each other
I became a mother

We said till death do us part
Did I misunderstand, am I not smart?

You said she was nothing to you
But when she enters the room, we became two

What went wrong?
Wasn’t our love strong?

I blame her for everything, especially the sorrow
Because of her there is no tomorrow

God must forgive me for what I’m gonna do
But if I cannot have you, she will never have you too

    They say.. "There is none so angry as a woman scorned". Great poem on such a common, sad occurrence of modern society
