The Other Woman

It's cheap to be (some may say) the one who steals his heart away but in my head I know completely that I came out on top. For it makes more sense (to me, at least) to be the one with whom he cheats for a heardened heart has no wishes or dreams or expectations. As the other woman I already know that affections he feels he already shows and I never push the envelope or long to hear "those words". I have a talent for being hands off unless involved in removing cloth be it buttons or zippers the job gets done and he's gone before the morn. You ask for more than he's willing to give and then are surpised when he doesn't deliver and blame me the one known as naught but The Other Woman. Take my advice, and make your heart stone for then there will be no pain when alone and you'll survive moving on and be better off for it. Or you could... Stay at home and play mother and be depressed when he leaves for another but you had to know that he was seeing me, that damned Other Woman.
