A Poem: The day I cheated...

Updated on June 27, 2012
Can you ever forgive me?
Can you ever forgive me?

Every day I would wake up to you

Day after day, week after week, year after year

I know you are all I require

You meet my every need

So why?

In you I have my fill

When we connect I feel your warmth within

My friends don't understand what we experience together

The fulfillment I get in you

So why?

It was just one slip, one mistake

It was just too tempting for my weakness

I was powerless to resist

Especially when it was right before my eyes

But why?

I wanted to be faithful to you

My flesh was weak, my will power fragile,

But it felt so good for a moment in time

I truly hope the damage is not too great

So why?

It was only yesterday

Today we were reunited

Tomorrow I recommit to you daily

My darling oatmeal

I will never cheat on you with bacon and eggs again.

      Pete.....Thanks for the morning chuckle, Pete. You know, man does not live by oatmeal alone. Cheating is acceptable. Especially when it's something simply irresistible. Bacon & eggs? Are you serious, Pete? Isn't that American as apple pie? Speaking of....what's wrong with a little apple pie for breakfast??? LOL. Very cute poem!..UP+++tweeted. Peace, Paula

      Love the conclusion but surely "HOW" could you ever choose oatmeal over Bacon and Eggs. No competition the latter wins hands down. Actually I feel the pangs of a bacon and egg sandwich coming on, now look what you have done! Great work.

      I loved this! The ending was such a surprise that it forced me to chuckle. I love oatmeal as well. Oats are one of my favorite cooking ingredients since they are so versatile (and since I live with a man that can only eat gluten free).
