Cheating Poem

I Wanted You To Be My Wife

This poem was written by myself at the age of 22. The events that happen in the poem are the closest way for me to describe the night I caught my fiance and girlfriend of five and a half years cheating on me on new years night.... well morning. I thank the lord that I survived my attempt at suicide, however, I still to this day have not talked to her. I was placed in a mental hospital and committed for 30 days, after which I went to a treatment centre. I wrote this in the treatment centre.

The Darkness In That Night

© Josh
A chill in the air awoke him
And he pulled his blankets tight
The booze was running strong
It had been a good night

He felt sick and tried to sleep again
Relaxed and breathed a sigh
The room was dark and silent
And he could still taste the rye

He laid there dazed and lazy
But something was not right
He felt the need to investigate
The darkness in that night

He sat up and rubbed his eyes
And looked over at his side
When he didnít see her
A fear crept up inside

He knew something was wrong
She is never up this late
Now his curiosity
Would make him investigate

He strained his ears to listen
Hoping he could hear her
But couldnít hear a thing
Only his heart beating fear

He stood up and walked to the door
And pause one more time
Again he heard no sound
But saw a dull lights shine

It came from downstairs somewhere
And he knew she must be here
He went down the stairs to find her
And grab another beer

He went down the stairs slowly
And turned the corner to the hall
Took two steps to the kitchen
Two steps that was all

He stopped and stood silent
His body frozen in shock
His mind trying to comprehend
As time ticked off the clock

He watched the look of pleasure
The passion in her eye
As she took everything he had
And gave it to another guy

His body began to tremble
His emotions ran hot
He was going to kill them
Right there on the spot

He walked into the kitchen
And tried to grab a knife
He wasn't going to listen
Just going to take their life

They heard him open drawers
And panic filled the air
They were caught red handed
But could only just stand there

He screamed at them and threatened
And smashed everything in sight
This was it for him
He would deal with this tonight

She tried to walk up and grab him
But something held her in place
She knew something was wrong
By the pain on his face

He fell down on the floor
Overwhelmed with grief
He knew it was too much
He would find no relief

The pain was too much for him
And he began to fade
The anger in his blood
Spilling out along his blade

All the screams became silent
And he felt no more fear
This day would never shine on him
For he would not be here

He prayed the dark would come
And take him away
He would not have to feel this
For even one lonely day

His body shook and he knew
That his time was near
When she came to hold him
And whispered in his ear

Iím sorry love, you know I am
Please donít leave me now
I'm so sorry, please donít die
I'll make it up some how

She told the man to call for help
And tried to save his life
His last words to her were
I wanted you to be my wife

  • This poem is actually excellent.
    This happened to me, in pretty much every detail apart from the knife bit ha, but I understand the pain that this guy felt. I'm sorry josh, happens to the best of us.

  • I loved this, I thought it was awesome and very deep. I haven't been through a similar situation but I know what its like to be betrayed and stabbed and sure I can somewhat relate to the pain and anger and sorrow
