Faithfulness is so easily revealed
Or denouced, with a kiss on lips not mine
I saw your tryst though the mist formed a veil
Over the rest of the garden and vines.
The view outside my window used to glow
With sunshine as dawn blotted out the night
Your blatant affair in the grounds below
Spoiled the vision that should have filled my sight.
You can't imagine the murderous rage
Upon seeing you with him, of all men.
Trust was never an issue at my age;
Distrust I now embrace as a godsend.
Friends you keep near, and enemies closer
Keep that in mind to prevent most murder.
