The Other Woman

You lying bastard!  
You son of a bitch!  
You promised a future  
And this is what I get?!  
You came in my life  
Like you could smell I need love  
Words sweet like honey  
Until fighting it I gave up  
Both of us taken  
Yet still I gave in  
You devoured my soul  
In the sweetest of sins  
When expressing my guilt  
You'd reassure me once more  
That I was your soul-mate  
Not a home-wrecking whore  
Long talks of children  
Future possibilities  
As (morally) strong as I'd been  
I've been brought to my knees  
Now the scent of your sex  
Still lingering in my brain  
What seemed like true love  
Has been turned into pain  
Wishing you'd have the decency  
To explain why you no longer call  
Don't text, don't write, don't e-mail  
Are you even alive at all?!  
Knowing I should've known better  
Than to think that this would last  
Believing we had a future  
Now you're just memories from my past  
How I wish that I could hate you  
Cuss you out and call you names  
Tell the world how much you hurt me  
Truth is though... I'm to blame  
I chose to go along  
To put all self-respect aside  
Deceiving those who love me most  
Now the price is death inside  
Concealing my pain, hiding my tears  
Is this what awaits me the rest of my years??  
A mistake has been made  
One we made oh so well  
A lesson was learned  
But no story to tell  
For if the world finds the truth  
Of our love and deceit  
The damage would be unfixable  
And so I'll retreat  
For you've already left me  
Your cutting silence making clear my role  
I was but "The other woman"  
Not the mate to your soul  
(I wish I didn't love you anymore...)
