A Lover's Remorse - Poem by Marva Seaton

I drank in the sweet scent of your perfume,
And momentarily it chased away my gloom.
I was afraid to look into your eyes,
Afraid that I would not be able to accept the truth.
I had hurt you bad, there was no excuse,
I could tell you she meant nothing,
But you would never understand,
I betrayed your trust,
I broke that sacred bond,
And you couldn't see beyond that.
Yet I hope you will forgive me,
This male egoistic part of me,
That felt it as okay to cheat with another woman.
Stolen waters may taste sweet at first,
but it leaves a bitter after taste.
