About the Poem
It's about being married but being in love with another man
Living A Lie
|by Cindi Adams|
|I'm laying next to him and all I can think about is you.
This isn't the way I'm supposed to feel.
He is the man I married
He is to whom I said "I do"
If what I feel is supposed to be so wrong
How come it feels so right.
You are the one I want to be with
You are the one I dream of in the night.
When he touches my skin
I want to pull away.
When he goes to kiss my lips
I turn my head and try to think of something to say.
Can he see it in my eyes?
Can he hear the truth behind my lies?
When he asks me if there's someone else on my mind
I have to answer "no."
I know it's not the truth and the desire I have for you just continues to grow.
I really don't know if you and I will ever be able to be together
But the memories of the way you make me feel,
I will treasure forever and ever.
