    Putting things into perspective
    Looking at it from all angles
    Backwards and forward
    Inside and out
    But nothing changes
    For no matter which way I look
    All I see is just a confusing blur
    For how do you interpet deceit

    thought we were the american dream
    Till I walked into every wife's nightmare
    My soulmate mating with a new mate
    Wow this is so not part of our script
    We were suppose to be an eternal love
    Not just another act in your playbook
    But life has a way of running its own course
    Throwing monkey wrenches whatever it may

    Putting things into perspective
    Sitting here hurting but still loving you.
    Wishing I was leaving and hating you.
    Where do we really go from here
    Not even sure how to walk away
    Or even if that's my next move
    Vision so blurred I am dizzy
    Spinning out of control

    Sometime through da maze of dazzing faze , it become clear to da path
    one must take , even at times it may seem outter bound we find insight
    to a piece of mind ......Happiness await you round the corner !

    This was deep and well felt for somehow i've been on this road before

    not sure if this is a personal experience...

    or a personal best. if life is being played out in the arts, know that the easiest thing to do isn't necessarily the right thing to do. yes, it would be easy to walk away...to relieve yourself of the baggage that he's made of your union. but will that answer all the questions that his deceit has thrust upon you? understand that, mostly, men cheat because something is amiss in the relationship they're in. it doesn't mean that they don't love the person they're with...they just don't know how to rectify what's missing with what they have. ASK HIM TO EXPLAIN. i know you're saying that he will only lie...try to excuse his actions...but what if he doesn't. what if he sincerely want to make it right...want to tell you why...from his heart and soul...and hope you understand that it will never happen again? WE ARE HUMAN. being human, we make mistakes...we fall prey to desires of the flesh...we do things that turns our life into a mess, then wish we could take it all back. i know he never can. BUT, AS MANY PEOPLE WHO WILL TELL YOU THAT HE'S NOT WORTH IT, SOMEONE SHOULD TELL YOU THAT HE MIGHT BE. and know that, when you're alone, in the still of the night, when those four walls are seemingly caving in on you, none of those well-intentioned friends will be there to comfort you...to love you...to hold back the boogyman, like he can.

    allow him a chance to explain. open yourself to the pain, and the possibility of happiness, again. IT COULD BE AS SIMPLE AS...his crying out to you, trying to get you to see that he's starving for that missing something.

    HEAR HIS WHISPER.

    good luck

    moving poem, by the way.
