Sex, Lies and Betrayal

by Gem   Jul 20, 2007

Safe in the corner in the midst of the night
Sex, lies and betrayal have reached a new height
Reflections of bittersweet passion and lust
The lure of the forbidden fruit was too much

They came in together, a flurry of heat
Trapped in an embrace from their lips to their feet
Abandoning all thoughts of whats right and whats wrong
She'd wanted to have his best friend for so long

She'd tell me how much she yearned for his kiss
Confide all her worries and every last wish
Happily married for the past seven years
I'd seen all the laughter, the love and the tears

Yet now all I see is a relationship slurred
In the marital bed where this poison occurred
Writhing and screaming someone else's name
Tomorrow she'll suffer noxious guilt and shame

I never thought she would cheat on her man
With his best friend just to show that she can
Sex, lies and betrayal have took place in the dark
She'll look in me tomorrow with a new broken heart


(I've slowly started trying to write more again, can you guess the hidden twist in this poem? It's from a mirror's point of view)
