A Lingering Pain - Poem by Marvin Brato Sr

Can see your acts of infidelity,
Even I closed my eyes completely.
There were times when I stood witnessed,
Yet all those escapades you had I dismissed!

Why can I not let you go?
Hurting me is what you always do!
Is loving you worth this dire sacrifice?
Why you do this, do I not suffice?

You are breaking my feeling,
Each time when you are leaving!
I know you are entwine with somebody,
Candlelight dinner with sweet melody!

The pain lingers in my sleep.
With teary eyes lying in weep.
Though in my dream you're angel,
Soon in the morning I will see a devil!

How long can I hold this suffering,
To your continuous philandering?
Maybe it is about time to declare,
You are free to leave, I do not care!
