A successful suspense/thriller keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. That's why I like stories that seem realistic and leave a hard punch. This story is one of my m..

Though written in first-person, this poem is very fictional. To quote something Jill once said about me, "I'm as 'loyal' as a dog."

I wanted to write a poem to express the remorse I think men should feel when they are not true to their loved ones; first-person seemed the easiest way. No woman deserves the pain associated with a man's infidelity, just as no man deserves it, if the roles are reversed. Life's too short and true love is too precious a blessing to risk wasting.

 

 
 
I am a lost and lonely man
I’ve made a huge mistake
I’ll repent the best way I can
Yet, her heart I will break
I do not know how best to share
The damage I have done
The grief I feel is everywhere
I’ve hurt my lovely one
 
I came before the darkness
I did not know where to turn
I struggled in the silence
You would think by now I’d learn
Into the arms of another
I allowed myself to fall
Leading me to hurt, none other
Than the one who’s loved through all
 
I am a lost and lonely man
I so deserve my pain
I’ll pray somewhere within God’s plan
I’ll reach her heart again
I’ll be alone, if this I must
Mounds of anguish, galore
Longing, someday, to earn her trust
The way I did before

Its nice to "stumble" into this at a time Mr Woods is having his time in the media for the wrong reasons. But it did afford me a platform to seat and absolve the whole essence of this poetry. Its well fitting and I wish Mr Woods can find some healing from the lines.."I so deserve my pain
Iíll pray somewhere within Godís plan
Iíll reach her heart again"

Cheers

Nate,
You're right about one thing --- life is too short. It's hard enough to keep one person happy, sometimes. And, yes, you're as loyal as a dog, I know! ;-)
Take care,
Jill
