Cheating And Lies


Published by Family Friend Poems October 2007 with permission of the Author.

Would you care if we quit talking?
Would you care if I went walking?
I need to know how you feel
So I know how to deal.
I like it when you're by my side.
I hate it when you try to hide
All the cheating and the lies
Bring me one step closer to saying goodbye.
I know the cheating is a fact
because I've caught you in the act.
I wish I had more trust in you,
but it's kinda hard when I busted you.
Seems to me you wouldn't care
even if I weren't there.
I always wonder who you're with,
hoping it's not another chick.
I'm not saying I don't believe you.
Too many people have told me to leave you,
but you are everything to me,
which is why I want you and me to always be.
Believing you may be a mistake,
but it's a risk I'm willing to take.
I really love you; always know I do,
and remember there will always be a me and you.

Thirty years of marriage. He probably cheated from the beginning but admits to at least past decade with many women. From porn to sexting, intimate and extravagant dinners with other women kept secret. Several full blown affairs. Trips to erotic massage parlors and bars for lap dances and more. Sits in the room texting lovers, making plans. It's obvious. Diverts money from joint accounts. Has friends cover for him. Very defensive and secretive.

I was very touched by this poem because my ex-boyfriend cheated on me somewhere around 7 times. We would break up, and my sister and all my friends would tell me to not go back out with him. But I was stupid enough not to listen to them. So I would go back out with him again each and every time. And he would break my heart all over again. Now he stares at me in the halls. I know I should be angry, I know I should be mad. But.... I'm not. I don't know why. I cry every time I see him in the halls. I get reminded of the good times we had, and I miss them. But it also brings back the memories that won't ever leave me and that have left an empty space in my heart that can never be covered again. It brings back the memories of being used and of being cheated on, especially with the people I hate the most. I was willing to do anything for him. I cared about him. I still love him, and for some stupid reason, I still want him. But I guess the feeling was never and still isn't mutual.

I can relate to this as well. I have been with my husband for 17 years, married 12 this December. He refuses to stop talking with every female he has dated or "been with." He tells all of them they are his soulmate and that he loves them. He makes plans to cheat on me with them, and there are many. He then says I am jealous and insecure. Never mind he doesn't have a loyal, faithful bone in his body. I have never cheated. I was brought up better than that. If something is wrong you are to fix it, not throw it away. He, however, feels that there is nothing wrong and I should be throwing myself at him daily. It’s hard for a woman to keep looking past the cheating, and by cheating you don’t have to touch, kiss, or have sex. Making plans, telling someone else besides your spouse that you love them and want to be with them, and talk about sex and being together. It’s all still cheating, people. If you’re not's an idea…leave.

This poem hit home with me because I went through the same thing. I loved this man for 15 years. Even through all the cheating and lies, I still stood by his side and loved him...until one day he decided he no longer wanted to be here, after all I went through for him and put up with not because I had to but because I love him. Come to find out he got the girl pregnant he had the affair with and a little girl was born. Now my world is torn apart. All I do is cry. It's sad to say, but I still want him. My heart is torn into pieces to where I feel I want to die. True love is so painful. If I get passed this hurt I don't know if I could ever love again.

I can relate so much. I've been with my wife for 15 years now, married 5. She has been with more guys since we've been together than I've been with women in my lifetime. So much has changed since we first met. She's not the person I fell in love with, but I still love her unconditionally. If I would have known half the things I do now, I wouldn't have even given a relationship a second thought. I've been through things that Jerry Springer probably can't even believe. I had the same problem with my first wife of 8 years, but I couldn't walk away. I guess it's how I was raised. Real men don't walk away and give up. There's so much to my story that I could probably write for days, but I thought I'd let you know that you're not alone when it comes to being betrayed by the love of your life. Hope things get better for you.

I was married for 35 years. He told me he met someone who was going to give him everything. I found out by going through phone bills he had been looking for almost 2 years. It hurts so badly. It's been a year since my divorce, and it still hurts. But read "Run Away Husbands" by Vicki Stark. It has helped greatly. And still is my bible of healing. The pain does get better. It's a process because I truly loved and trusted and now am healing slowly but surely. It does get better!

I have been with a cheating spouse before and trust me I know how it feels, those suspicions are not mere paranoia. If you suspect that he is cheating, he definitely is..I hired a PI who helped me install monitoring bugs on his phone that diverted all his messages( facebook, whatsapp, text messages, and even phone calls) to my phone without him knowing: (hackerethique gmail com) is the man for the job with a very high level of professionalism and highly reliable. I really enjoyed working with him and the few friends I told have been nothing but thankful to me for the referral.

My husband has cheated on me with 4 different woman and had kids with them. He says he is not doing that anymore but I have no trust for him. I am still with him, been married for 15 yrs. and still love him. My life is so hard. I would like to be strong and leave him.

I just discovered this site years later and I'm hoping that maybe people who are still in this situation from when they posted see this. Someone said that life is too short and if you're still with him when I'm seeing this being 8 years later maybe you worked out your differences, but if he's still actively doing it and you're still with him you have to leave. There is a whole world outside of him and you deserve better. You should be the only woman in his life that he shares his love and intimacy with.

Dear, I read what you published, and all I can say is that life is too short and you have to look after your happiness. He who cheats once will always cheat.

Break up with him if he is going to cause you this amount of stress. If he is just giving you stress and heartache, it's not worth it to be with him. Remember, s cheater is always going to be a cheater. My advice is to leave him.

Look if he's still cheating then it is time to go. Let him pack up his bags and leave. You deserve better because you were loyal.

Just leave him. He's a low-life rat. He doesn't deserve human affection if he is that bad.

I know how you feel, I'm married for 4 years now and yes he cheated on me just here lately and yes I know for sure he has and yes I stayed. When you love someone you love them with the bad, but he has one more time and I'm out the door. He will do it again god knows I hope he realizes what he will lose for a one night stand I love my husband but one time only.

Hello Ladies, I am most sincerely sorry for your pain and suffering. These men who've disrespected you and treated you so badly are shallow and very insecure with themselves. They may feel they are God's gift to women, don't they all? They don't like who they are. Trust me, I know this type. I have them in my brothers are good looking, but they are very insecure. I just wanted to tell you that there are still honest, kind, and good looking guys, like myself out there, who have never cheated on a spouse or girlfriend. I have been in common law twice before, and they both had cheated on me while I was working 10-14 hours per day. As soon as I found this out, I had them leave my home immediately. I bought them out. Once a cheater always a cheater is not always true. I thought we should stay together because of the children. WRONG...not acceptable at all. For the record, within one month they both wanted me back. It was brutal, calls and texts in med class.

I'm going thru the same thing all over again. My first husband cheated and lied about it blamed me accused me. We divorced after 10 years of married and 3 beautiful children. Now my current husband is doing the same thing hiding his phone, staying out late, always broke the same day he gets paid. I haven't caught him yet but I know one day I will. I'm the stupid one who always tries to keep us together when he won't meet in the middle. Why are we as women, so weak to give up when all we get is hurt while they get everything. One day from all the hurt we go thru Mr. Right will be there but we will never notice because we are always afraid of being hurt over and over again.

Not all guys are bad, it's humankind that's flawed. I was with a girl for 11 years and one day she decides she wants to talk to somebody else and hides a relationship on my back, This goes on for six months without any physical contact, and then now she's too embarrassed to look in my eyes after I found out, so she left and won't talk to me again

Don't judge all guys to lie and cheat some are nice and well mannered, this poem is great for me but I am not going through a cheating relationship more of a never ending cycle of heart breaks after heart breaks and it just finally tore me down, I can't be in a relationship without being scared but in the bitter end I give them a chance to prove themselves one step at a time, and if all else fails all I have is myself to blame.

I know the feeling of being cheated. 10 years of blissful marriage and suddenly it happened. It almost teared me apart, heart and soul that no matter how hard he ask for forgiveness and one last chance it seems so hard for me to trust him again. I do still love him but sometimes love is not enough.

I loved this poem. It really touched me because it said everything that I feel and everything I am going through. It takes a lot of strength to stay with someone you are madly in love with and I understand completely.

You girls are so desperate ,,,what is wrong with you?? You are staying with these guys still , because you love them ?? Well , they don't love you .. Sorry but it's the truth... I feel sorry for you ,,,your life is always going to be hell with a cheating husband ...this is the truth.

I love this poem. It's awesome! I just can't believe you have stayed with him. I would've kicked him to the curb. And to catch him in the act?? You have a lot of strength. I probably would've killed them. You definitely are one phenomenal woman.
