A Cheater Caught - Poem by Ray Hansell

You took off with him
Seeking something new
Little did you know
The things that he would do to you

While he was cheating
On his girlfreind with you
He was cheating on you
With someone that you knew

While his girlfriend sat at home
He ran around with you
When you weren't with him
He was off with the woman you knew

But one day his adventures
Were all found out about
He hurt you so very much
That you wanted to scream and shout

So while you thought you were the one
You found out you were not
Your stomach turned, it made you sick
Some will say, you deserved what you got

A man who cheats on his girlfriend
Then cheats on the one he's cheating with
I guess to him it didn't matter
I guess it was all worth the risk

    Typical behavior pattern of somebody two timing, is probably three timing, four timing, and how they trick each into feeling 'special.'- - maybe it's just a 'trick' that creates, and has nothing to do with the cheater at all. (Report)Reply

    Heartfelt words. A situation that I have never experienced and could not even imagine the pain and the distrust.
    Thank you

    Some people just seem to like the thrill of the chase and the novelty with little regard to the feelings of those around them. A very accurate poem and a 10 (Report)Reply

    Hi Ray,
    First, congratulations on being selected Poet of the Day.

    This marvellous poem deserved the recognition. Good.
    The simple maxim for life is, “Do Only what is right in your own consciousness! ” If you hurt others, you are definitely going to get hurt, if not today, tomorrow! If you cheat another, and cheated in the same act, who are you complaining against?
