 Pages Of A Woman's Soul


**Dedicated to a writer friend of mine who shared an intimate look at what he felt when his spouse cheated on him. Though they put their life back together, the scars of betrayal still affect him.**

cheating Pictures, Images and Photos

Blind, romantic, innocence and trust
have been murdered…
wiped out
in but a few short moments
of lustful fantasy

two strangers meeting
on a night of drunken frivolity

two hearts at home
unsuspecting of worlds colliding

Was it worth the cost?

Did the lust you felt
overcome your reason;
did he ever cross your mind?
Did she?

All the years of commitment,
the vows you spoke,
the children born,
the memories…

did you knowingly trade them,
push them aside for
one night

Four lives changed
only because curiosity won out

Four souls bound
evermore, lost in love's betrayal

No path between two people
is ever walked without stumbles;
but they never thought you'd fall!

All the secrets, all the lies,
all the hiding and worry,
was the anguish
really worth it…

would it have continued on,
had your subterfuge not
been discovered
so soon?

Two people forgive
and rise above the injury

Two betrayers forever
live with what they have done

Love overcomes
and steps into the future,
scarred but still intact…

For now.
