Secrets of the Night ......

When you slid into bed so quietly and the
midnight mists delivered your scent
In silence I wondered away at the reasons
and but imagined where you went

And it's not just me who wonders even your
girls ask where you were
As they gossip around the front porch steps
and look to me as if they care

I'll say one thing though perhaps
he's not brave enough to escort you home
Such are the ways of the cheaters
like you and he have shown

Remember though just as you returned
after the midnight eve
That's just the way it will happen
just the way I'll leave

Envy not the house next door
nor the neighbors situation
As of reasons to trust ......there is yet no one to answer
......love ? .......it's all interpretation

i hate cheaters! it says so much about them as human beings! I always said that the grass may look greener on the other side of the fence - but - once you climb over - you find out it's only artificial turf!

Your insight is, as always, that of a very old soul!

Oh yes. I despise all cheaters and those untrue to any form of love but the worst are the women especially those who have children. You expressed the pain and distrust real well.
