Love Rebounded part 2

They devour each other 
Their excuse for infidelity: familiarity 
How can it be wrong? 
Both taken, both taking 
Sickly forbidden fruit 
Followed by titanic guilt 
So much wrong 
Damage...done 


She wants to know he loves her still 
He insists she leave her new lover 
‘But that will destroy him’ 
‘Oh great, destroy me but not him!’ 
‘Don’t worry babe, just give me a while. I will break it to him gently’ 
What has he’s opened? 
Pandora time 

She can’t stay 
Sneaks off like a thief 
With a slice of his heart 
Back to the new man 
She slips in bed 
An arm wraps around her 
Rigid with guilt 
Head chock full 
Sleep wont come 

Across town about to doze 
He receives another text 
‘I cant sleep babes, thinking of you 
I wish you were here instead of him 
Tonight was like old time, felt so right 
Let’s do it again...soon 
I love you and always will 
Sweet dream my love’ 

Anxiety floods his chest 
‘Shit! 
She’s ****ing with my head 
In my old bed, with another man 
Wishing she was with me instead? 
What the fu...?’ 
He wants her desperately 
But can't stop thinking about... 
Her with him having sex in his bed 
A light bulb ignites 

He can’t go backwards 
Needs to forge on 
So shoots her a text 
‘I had the best time, it was a lot of fun 
But, been there, done that 
Got the t-shirt and a scar 
Let’s pretend this never happened 
Then I won’t have to deal with the fact that… 
My baby's mammas a cheating whore 
You made your bed 
With your new man 
Lay in it’
