I must have more
To feel your trail of kisses, along the shore

The passion I felt
In every pore

The lust that made me tremble
I felt it to my core

Murmurs of marriage
Someone to adore

Gave me affection
Until I was sore

Conversations before slumber
You had such lore

Partner in all adventures
You were ready to explore

But I betrayed you
Our trust tore

Broken the sacred bond
To which I swore

Confidence in me
You could not restore

The evidence of affair
Too great to ignore

Regret strangled my pride
I would implore

I viciously pleaded
Upon the floor

You did not deserve it
All the deplore

You saw right through me
As if I was a chore

Could I have stopped you?
When you walked out the door

I hope people will apply the "You never know what you have until it's gone" cliche to their own life. Learn to appreciate everything.
