Cheating Poem by Teens

Poem From A Cheater

Something I haven't seen much of, especially in Cheating, is poems by the person in the wrong. By no means is this something I'm proud of, but I can't erase it, or make it right. All I can do is own up to it.

I can see the pain in your eyes,
it's right there,
reminding me of what I've done.
I am the betrayer,
I put this hurt on you,
you never deserved to feel this way.
I don't have any excuses,
I can't say it was a mistake,
because I knew exactly what I was doing.
The regret I feel chokes me,
I have no words I can say,
nothing that can erase what I've done.
I wish you'd hate me,
I wish you'd turn away,
I wish you'd say you never want to see me again.
Because sitting here,
watching you accept this,
is killing me.
I know you deserve better,
I know that better should have been me,
but it wasn't.
I can say I'm sorry,
but even though I mean it,
they're just empty words.
No one likes a cheater,
no one should.

This poem really spoke to me. Having been on both sides of the terrible plague that is cheating, this poem opened my eyes to what I have done and how much pain cheating can cause. I can't fixed what I have done, but I must learn to move on and not make the same mistakes again.

I think its really amazing how you came out with admitting that you cheated. It takes a lot to admit.
