Your Cheating Heart is Gonna Tell on You

Updated on October 15, 2014
Source

Dishonesty is all about the small acts we can take and then think, 'No, this not real cheating.' So if you think that the main mechanism is rationalization, then what you come up with, and that's what we find, is that we're basically trying to balance feeling good about ourselves.

Dan Ariely

You came to me with your silly

lies about love, you had me captured for a moment.

But I did not release all my heart & soul to you,

because I was once heart broken and I said I

will never love again. So my eyes and ears were

always open for lurking.... like you.


My Love goes deep and my heart I do not

wish for it to be played on like an instrument.

I am sweet I am loving but turn me off and the

I will show you the other side of me that I’ve got, its

a side rare and unseen. I am a Capricorn and we

don’t take matters like these lightly.


You started acting weird when I noticed I just stood

by let you think that I am your fool. You got cold and

I decided to cope with you I’d just get colder, maybe

like ice? Because what you were doing simply wasn’t anything

nice.

Yet so caring, I still stood there hoping this cloudy

mist would disappear. Instead she came along and

addled your brain, you fell like a prey to his predator.

Your soul she encased in her hands, locking them tightly,

perhaps you tried to let go and unwrap yourself. From this

witch clutches, she surely had you in her grip and guess what?

You started liking it so she roped you in tighter holding

you longer than you wanted.



Telling you things your ears love to hear, feeding your

hungry soul and your lustful thirst. I saw you drowning

for months now. You were too far gone for me to pull

you back to the shore. As I looked on her claws dragged

you deeper into the depths of her lost world. I knew you

won’t surface again so I decided to watch no more

and go on home.



Why didn’t you tell me? Why didn’t you hurt me then? So

That I may have learned to love again? Deceit and lies

crawled all over your body and with your tongue you

spewed your lies and venom. I can smell the fragrance

of your words that she brainwashed you with. It smelt

nasty and they felt bitter.

I was angry I was upset that you made me a fool, you

left me in the cold rain and you went inside and closed

the door. I never thought you would be like this I never

knew this dirty side of you. Astonished and shocked I’d

expect the unexpected but from you? NO! Now I know

that I cannot trust anyone, now I know I am safer within

me and not without. You were too slick and sly with your

silver fox eyes, gazing all outside!


I know you think you hurt me and you thought

It casual so you kept playing the game. Waiting for it

To look as though it was my fault. I have been broken

hearted once and your little tricks I sat and watched all

that time. You think I was unaware of your little secret.

You had no idea your cocoa was out in the sun & the rain

kept pouring on it….. What I’d say is all greedy dogs

lose their bones and I will not seek revenge. I’d buy myself

a rocking chair and when Karma starts to apply it to you.


I wanna sit back and rock, stare you in the eyes and see if

you will tell me your silly little lies. You have insulted my

Intelligence with your hypocrisy and guess what baby?

GOD DOES NOT SLEEP!!! When tears come down like

fallen rain. You'll toss around and call my name.......

Your cheating heart is gonna tell on you!!! It has already

started and am just smiling :)

      Love your poem. Especially the last part when you said, "kept pouring on it…..

      What I’d say is all greedy dogs

      lose their bones and I will not seek revenge.

      I’d buy myself a rocking chair

      and when Karma starts to apply it to you."

      I have often seen it happen that philandering husbands grow old alone and unloved, or in the company of an opportunistic young thing who will only want his money and not care for him. Ironically, I've seen women adjust to old age with more strength and grace, even if they are alone. Sometimes I think men need us more than we need them.

      Hello grand old lady you are sure right about that. Wanderers do end up alone lost in a world .....the same rainbow they was chasing after disappears. Of course women pull true these things much faster. When they try to hurt us they end up hurting themselves, because we are stronger emotionally and was built up to deal and face problems. Unlike most men who run from it.

      Thanks so much your comment meant a lot to me.
