Sub-rosa Love

Tried to resist the temptation But my will is not that strong Tried to push you away But found myself holding on And now I’ve gone too far There’s no turning back It’s all gonna fall apart So I just live in the this moment It feels so wrong My guilt consumes me You already belong To somebody that’s not me Yet still I lie here in your arms Cause there’s nowhere I’d rather be I meant to cause no harm But that’s all I seem to be doing I’ve always felt so drawn to you Since the moment that we met I could tell you felt it too Couldn’t get the thought out of my head Or the way your eyes undressed me From all the way across the room A look that’s so compelling What else was I to do Now I can’t help myself from falling Though I know how foolish it is I Try to pretend it’s not her calling As you switch your phone to silent But I can’t hide that I’m affected It’s smeared across my every thing This secret must be kept one So it sits inside me festering And I don’t even have the right to hate you It isn’t me you’ve been doing wrong It’s her to which you've been unfaithful This is something I have known all along Still my heart aches like it’s broken I feel like I don’t know myself anymore Hard to believe this is the path I’ve chosen I’m nothing more than a home wrecking whore But even with that knowledge I can’t keep away from you Your love provides me with little solace Only leaves me sad and confused And though I hurt Woe is not mine It belongs to her The one you call wife…
