How long have you shared
 your secret lover with the world 
 the one you kept from my ears
 did you decide to move on
 last night while we made love
 or was it this morning 
 when I still had reason 
 to believe in you

 perhaps it was Sunday
 as I cleaned the rooms 
 while you walked the dog  

 how long have I been 
 your excuse to leave early

 where in the world
 did you promise to travel  to
 as I made your favorite bread

 I need to hear it from you
 how a life time spent by my side
 has lost its meaning to you  
 what covenants were made
 as you broke 
 all of your covenants made to me
 you will never know
 the safety of my kiss again

    Interesting question but in this poem i tried to write as i felt a women would feel learning that her partner had cheated on her or was about to leave, etc. Injecting issues lie making favorite bread, cleaning rooms, etc anchored the feeling to something more meaningful and 'normal' for any couple, hence the violation of trust becomes more significant and exactly why HE will never now the safety of her kiss again.
