' Extra-Marital Affiar


Marriage is a sacred vow
an innate romantic chain
that bind the devotion
of the couple in love.

Yet along in the way
temptation intrudes
into the privacy
of marital romance.

Third party comes
alluring temptress
breaks the chord
of marital loyalty.

The other partner
succumbs to lust
drowns the bond
and kills the love.

Two ways may happen
in extra-marital affair
marriage cracks or breaks
where the first love dissolves.

    alert! alert! check spelling in the title. looks like something i might do. i didn't notice it at first.
    i didn't understand the last stanza, or i don't think i did. an interesting topic worth writing about, though
    the temptress is not always a woman, and sometimes it is one partner within the marriage who initiates the
    affair. thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
