Sample Chapter

CONFESSION OF AN ADULTERER

I knew a man who couldn’t eat nor sleep when the heart in his throat made it hard to speak…

Tears of blood fall from his cheeks with guilt heavy as a wooden cross. He couldn’t even walk on his feet…

The secrets he hide is like cancer. It kills him inside… Just look in his eyes. He’s seen so much pain it’s like his pupils being crucified…

No lie, so he get drunk and high with a knife in hand just contemplating suicide… Why? Because with every tear he cry he realize he’s married and his mistress is pregnant on the side…

Scared to confess to his bride so he walked as a loyal husband in disguise…

Acting like nothing happened with a smile that’s defined as a perfect art picture of a lie…

His emotions and brain are fried because driving with Adultery is a hell of a ride… So many decisions on his mind he can’t even decide…

Even if he hit her with the truth he wouldn’t be able to look her in the eyes… He has to be honest. He’s full of shame with a guilty conscious…

His act of self was monstrous. so how can he revive her broken heart with a broken promise… He wanted sex, but didn’t want the consequence…

Didn’t use common sense, and regretting for not practicing monogamous…

In the past he wasn’t fond of it, but now he lost all confidence, and wish he could sleep forever in his unconsciousness…

In the past, he portrayed to women as a single man…

So he popped the can of what seemed fun, but it’s no Pringles can…

Spiritually, he was an arsonist, obsessed with playing with fire…

But never knew they would find out and call him a liar…

Cuss him out, and tell him “I’m tired…”

And call his wife’s phone, and somehow leave his car with a slashed tire…

They say, what’s done in the dark comes to the light…

But he’s done dirt back in the day and the night, so every dirt he’s done came to life… In the past he was faithful, and treated his wife right…

But everything changed when they began to argue and fight…

Overwhelmed by her insecurities and verbal abuse…

Clothes thrown on the stoop even when he’s telling the truth…

Her loony behavior was affecting his career…

An atmosphere of drama that he felt he couldn’t bear…

Tears filled with anger, because he didn’t want to be here…

And he wanted to retire this marriage, because he wasn’t having a Good Year…

His heart turned to ice, and he wanted a divorce…

Willing to divorce God’s promise like mothers do when they get their baby abort…

But it never happened because he only had funds for mortgage…

And going to court is expensive, like sin, he couldn’t afford it…

But his wife’s unexpected attitudes were foreign, so he didn’t bother to cure it…

So instead of taking the time to compromise he chose to go outside his marriage and explore chicks…

Now he realize that in spite of his marital battles, she never was unfaithful to him…

He thought she needed to change, but the only person that needed to change was him…

Over the months, she dramatically changed, and in the long run he stopped his promiscuous ways…

But it hurt, when his mistress told him she was pregnant that day…

He drank beers after beers with eyes filled with tears…

Because his wife’s been trying to get pregnant for years…

He’s scare and don’t know what to expect…

He loves her to death, and if she ever leave, she’ll leave with the heart in his chest…

He regrets what he’s done. He’s sorry and he confess…

He prays that she forgives him, and hoping to start fresh…

He loves her, and still wants her, and will do anything to gain her trust…

This obstacle may be rough, forgiving him will be tough, but he’ll work on himself to show her that he’s worthy enough… If she chooses to divorce, they’ll be scarred forever…

But whatever decision she makes, he’ll still love her forever…
