The Affair

The telltale signs were there
But my eyes refused to see
What others saw so clearly
That you were deceiving me
I brushed off all the rumors
Turned a deaf ear to my friends
But now I can’t ignore it
Is this how our love ends?

All those business trips you planned
That kept you out of town
The whispers all around me
Whenever I went downtown
Then suddenly…I saw you both
Tears blinding me as I cried
That was the day the music stopped
The day that my world died

For Susan Burch's contest  - Cheater Cheater
