What's the point of cheating
Why hurt someone by how you're treating
Why not just walk away
Say a simple goodbye, and have a nice day
Why hurt, break, and lie
When all that someone does is try
They try to be good enough
Try to give you all their love

Maybe a simple mistake was done
But why make that mistake cause everything to be gone
Why? A word always used for questions
Questions everyone asks themselves
That keep piling up on the shelves

All i'm looking for are some answers to my questions
But i dunno whether in his words i should trust
I need some answers, it's a must
Please tell me, are these lies?
I dunno if i should believe my eyes

I can't stop thinking, it's tearing me apart
Are you telling the truth, or are you only afraid to break my heart?
I don't mind if the cut will be deep
But take your lies that make me smile, Id rather go for truth that will make me weep

    This poem speaks volumes. If fiction it is a great endorsement for truth. If non-fiction then a great admonition for infidelity.
