A Step From Grace

A Step From Grace
A Step From Grace

No grace for cheaters…

A step from grace,
silk and lace so shear
to entice the flesh beneath,
the writhing breach of morals steep,
even harder to conquer
let alone climb,
and she with smile so tender,
pouted lips and finger tips so gentle,
the surging juices of love’s game do rise,
and eyes lock, lost within the ride
as rhythm beats that bed
into submission.

After, the guilt rises
like a blistering summer morn,
the sting vaguely felt
between the lethargy of afterglow,
yet mind in hunger’s ilk, wants more
despite the guilt,
and again the bed rides the flow,
thrashing, post bashing show,
and exhaustion takes
a cognizant mind to slumber,
lumber strained and aching dry
cascades a sunder, lost to pleasure’s will.

And the guilt now palpable,
all night work a play to convince,
and wife and kids on edge
for him to show,
in showered state,
the scent of cheating throws
a spanner in the works,
all on the line, broken promises
that tear a family apart,
and all for the conquest
of a pleasure he should not know,
the potential to end his life.

    An eye opener for sure, the photo you posted, exotically enticing, drawing ones senses of desires no doubt. The allure of something better that what you have is often the reason for couples to stray, to taste the nectar of another. The suspense and ego filling feeling of conquering another, all along knowing that someone waits at home alone, empty and wondering where you are. Cheaters may cheat but guilt follows them to their graves. Affairs are abundant in the world, there is no place that’s an exception from it. The nature of man/woman is to sin, as Adam and Eve showed us all in their garden. According to the Bible we were tagged with that stigma of desiring forbidden fruit. So much devastation can be caused, a chain of events, anger possibly death, loss of family, children weeping, divorce, finances and possibly addictions as a result of being cheated on. I’m happy to be single, all baggage no longer carried, my sins behind me, I have paid the price dearly and learned lessons grave along the way. A masterful piece my friend, you had me from the photo, and then my mind took over as I read every verse with some pain in my heart. Peace my friend.
