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…
