You promised your life,
When you made her your wife.
To have and to hold,
Until your bodies grow cold.
But you find another,
And she becomes your lover.
Sharing the intimacy meant for your wife,
Yet you promised her your life.

What were you thinking
What if your wife had seen you there?
Her heart would be sinking.
Did you even think to care?
In between your flirting and winking,
Thrusting sweaty and bare,
And don't even think to blame drinking.
This little affair, is far from fair.


  1. Nice rhyming and a strong point put across! This is a very neat poem, you're getting really good!

  2. wow,
    love your words.
    many men don't care when they engaged in a love affair.


  3. hohoho! whats mine is mine haha! love it! here's my potluck for this week:

  4. Yeah, I never do get why people make vows they don't live by. Sad.

  5. Nice job on this one1

    I think it would be interesting to write it the opposite way, with the wife having the affair.

    Maybe even from the other woman's (or man's) perspective, and make it a trio of poems.

  6. Niced rhyme and flow to your story poem.

  7. I'm a newlywed who's madly in love, and I shudder at the mere mention of the word "affair". I hope the term never becomes a part of our life. It's true...even the littlest affair is far from fair!
