Love Affair, Is It Cheating?

Updated on January 2, 2012

Love or just an affair?

Cheating is never a good idea and no one ever really wins in the end. I wrote this poem for a friend because I saw her suffer so much and learned that her partner was suffering too, because he lost his family. I wanted to highlight that cheating is not good, not right and only hurts all involved.

You have no idea

I wanted to be a snitch

I hurt so bad

that my heart was falling out of my chest

He pissed me off so violently

that all he saw was a bitch

Well, I am here to tell you that I am no snitch

He hurt me, severely, deep within

I loved him to the bottom of my soul

I was his blanket, he used and batter

But now I have gone cold to this matter

Cheaters never win

They will lie and then lie some more

But I know and he knows he will never win

Because I will pray and pray to the almighty Lord

I may be hurting, shattered by his lies

Feeling pain but try to lift to the skies

Help me Lord, for I have sinned

With a cheater I laid

How must I move forward and mend

Cheaters, cheaters never win

They vanish, they fall, and they die to all

With mindless heart, seedless soul

They become cold and very old

To live alone

Cheater, Cheater

Are you a Cheater?

      I was a cheater, in the end , I paid a high price, still paying as a matter of fact. If I could go back I would do everything so differently, I hope I would anyway

      I cannot tolerate a cheater. All the lies and deception, totally unnecessary if communication took place. Great hub.

      Lots of us experience the problem of the Cheater. It can be male or female. Sometimes the lies are even worse that come after the cheating, and going behind one's back. It is heart-breaking.

      But the best thing is to move on, and put the person out of your mind. The stronger our relationship of dependency is with the cheater, the worse we feel. And it is hard on married people with kids. The shame can be terrible. My heart goes out to the person in the hub who experienced the "cheat" in question. A good hub. Thank you for sharing it with us.

      Harvey, you are a funny man and it's painful for all involved. Hope you are well.

      There is cheating going on every day that is never found out about. That doesn't usually cause pain, except to the cheater. I'm not the type.

      But the legs in the pic above make me think.

      Nice and Sad poem.

      Cheaters always ruin something so pure, so beautiful - which could turn out to be the most precious in their life, but in their cheating - that precious person slips out of their fingers. (man or woman)

      If this is real. Take heart, with time you'll be strong again.

      Best Wishes.

      Pamela99, you are right with your comment, losing the trust, is it really worth it?

      entertianmentplus, you are soooo right!!! Thanks for commenting.

      Larry, people that are weak give in, very true, very sad as well. Thanks for stopping by.

      emdi, yes, I have a dear friend that has just gone through this and it's sad, for them and for us, losing a friend as well.

      shazwellyn, yes I agree, trust yourself, wish everyone did! My friend was hurt by an affair, so sad and so destructive to all. Thanks for reading.

      Trust... the only person you can trust ultimately is yourself. How can anyone know the heart of another? No expectation and there is no lie.

      I hope this poem is a response to an experience? That pain is hard to deal with.

      Ladybird33 8 years ago from Fabulous USA

      creativeone59, it is a unique poem, one I wrote for my friends and what they are dealing with right now.

      lorlie6, I agree with your comment, it's just all so sad.

      Immartin, I agree with you completely, your comment is what I believe I would do! But it happens and it's so sad for all involved.

      kariscabin, maybe that will be my next poem, liar, liar but seriously I am not sure how they keep it straight either! Thanks for stopping by!

      artrush73, yes, it will ocme out, your comment is very true and powerful!

      TrixieGator, your comment is a wonderful explanation of what I was trying to say!!!

      Lady bird, What is the motivation for this beautiful poem ?I guess someone close to you have been cheated or doing kind of cheating,which you hate?

      Beautiful but painful poem...Cheaters hurt, deeply...your love has been violated and it is difficult to regain that trust that comes with love and commitment...Some folks are just weak and give in to their basest instincts...I agree with Imartin, cut the anchor and sail on...Larry

      Cheating is not worth all the pain.

    • Pamela99 profile image

      Pamela Oglesby 8 years ago from United States

      I think cheaters can be men or women but they destroy those who love them and even if they are fortunate enough to be forgiven, no one ever forgets. Trust is not regained easily if ever. Good hub.

      Beautiful, Ladybird-only you can keep your heart safe and warm. That may sound callous, but in the end, I've found it to be true.

      Take Good Care,

      Cheaters suck! It would definately NOT be one of my hobbies! I personally haven't figured out how they keep their lies straight, or maybe, they don't, and that would be how they get caught?

      Seems to me like it would be a waste of good time.......

      Your answer is easy -- dump the SOB and move on. A lovely lady like you deserves the best, and don't settle for less.

      In answer to G. Hamilton's very valid point -- women cheat just as often, possibly more so. I've kicked around the world for quite a while now, and I've known more lady cheaters than gentleman cheaters. For whatever it's worth.

    • Ladybird33 profile image

      Ladybird33 8 years ago from Fabulous USA

      Hi Gordon, good question, however, I think women cheat as much as men, probably...don't know that for sure. But I have seen my friends suffer through issues like this and it hurts everyone involved...I just wonder if it's worth it in the end. Hope I never know :) My best to you.

      Hmmm...interesting Hub, Ladybird - and naturally, a very good point. It throws up a question, however, which I once wrote a very painful article about online. I am not saying for a second you are suggesting this but the question I posed was, "Why do people almost always assume that it was the man who was the cheater...?"
