Deception

We walked through the city side by side
With my secrets in you I do confide
Familiar faces all so strange
So many colours oh such a range

Last night I really couldn't sleep
The knowing was what made me weep
Even after such a brilliant day
To forget I really hope and pray

Working late to me you said
With her I found you in that bed
Never took you for one who lied
No where left in which to hide

    It is terrible to discover that one you loved and trusted has deceived and cheated.
