Cheater Poem by Deborah Cromer


Rating: 4.6

Look at me now, I have no more trust
You cheated on me horribly, my actions are just
I believed in you, with all of my heart
You kept with her and tore me apart
I waited for you to find out it was wrong
You just kept seeing her, and being with her all along
I know now you were lying to me most of the time
Truth had no answers, not even in rhyme
You were starting off on your relationship new
Stupid, ignorant me kept right on believing in you
Believing in us in every bit that I had
For my children too, they did call you 'Dad'
We all loved you with the purest of breath
Offering you forever with honor, you just gave us death
Selfish were your actions to only think of you
Spending special moments with your someone new
You could have fixed things, but chose not to instead
Our time, our lives, our future now lays here dead
No breath, no life, no heartbeat at all
You went away to kill us and answer cheating's call
Making your life with her, you will do your best
What we had and could have had, is now laid to rest
Dead, done and over, nothing left to save
Dumped and burried, forgotten within memory's grave

'You went away to kill us and answer cheatings call' Very strong and thought out words I love it, cheating does call on ppl, but its up to the person whether or not to answer. The poem is nice, real nice. Don't u just hate cheaters=) DIMPLzZ

I loved this Poem and felt it to the very depth of my soul! You did a good job relating to all the emotions not only you felt but others could and would feel in this situation! I must say this was an eye opener for me that to feel connected to you and not even knowing you personally! Thanks for sharing this I totally enjoyed it! Good Luck in writings and I hope you continue to do so! !

Although written in strictly rhyming couplets, this poem rings true all along. The despair and disappointment of the subject (whether yourself or another) are clearly expressed and evoke real sympathy.

Well, presumably not quite 'forgotten in memory's grave' if you're writing about it, though there's little doubt you want to forget. There are good lines here, and I like your no-nonsense, direct approach which I see sorely lacking in many contemporary poems. How about writing a poem about the cheater's perspective on things?
