Why Men have Affairs?

Should I tell her?

should I continued living a lie?

maybe tomorrow, it would go away

probably, everything would seem like a brand new day.

Each day I looked at my wife and children

and ponders do I deserved to have them,

why did I cheat and lie?

I engaged in such an unforgivable act

I would not blame Maria,

if she reaches out and gave me a slap.

why men have affairs?

because of the sexual attractions,

and the daring excitement in the atmosphere

the yearning, the forbidden fruits

those darn sexual moves!

I am the son of Adam and Eve

can you clearly see the traits and my identity?

however, there is no such thing as a perfect love affairs,

I am Arnold your Governor and I do care.

I am not your Steve Urkel your primetime nerd,

moreover, "yes did I do that, a decade ago

at the famous Club Flamingo,

my juggling acts, and my strings of lies,

it resurfaces now..... me definitely going to lose my wife.

I am a one-man demolitions, and

since past disgrace would not be forgotten

I outrun the adrenaline rush,

I am through with all the lusts.

where do we go from here?

now it is all out in the open air,

sorry, so sorry my darling Maria,

my lovely wife for cheating and fathering a child.

Great poem on going into Arnold's head. We are all sinners and he just happens to be in the lime light. No excuses for Arnold, just saying we all make mistakes.

Thank you Minnetonka Twin for commenting, and yes, there is no excuse for men who cheat... my husband is a great example of the cheater, it shocked me, when i found out about his affair, he was someone whom i trusted..

anyway, an old saying "one happen in the dark, always come out in the light...

Oh my Darknlovely-So sorry to hear you've experienced this. Glad you wrote a poem to get out your angst. I can't imagine how hard that would be. I have been thinking about Maria since the story aired and wondered how she is dealing with all of this. Then I saw the news and they said she was on Oprah when the news story broke and she thanked Oprah for her friendship and support.

Cheating on your partner is disgusting, I think. It shows a lack of control on the part of the person doing the cheating and it shows a lack of respect for that person's partner.

I have done many bad things in my life but I have never cheated on any of my partners. It would make me feel really weak and uncomfortable - I could not lie for a minute never mind for years like Arnie - that shows that he is a cunning person. He's a vermin, I always had been of that opinion.

I am beginning to think that cheating is a illness,

and uncontrollable one for some partners, thank you for commenting Mr. Happy

Cheating is definitely a disease
