silver door knob and deadbolt

Cheating Requires

Cheating requires closed doors
Windows shut tight, curtains closed for the night
Padded footsteps across the floor

Cheating requires bare walls
No portrait reminders of the ties that bind us
Empty hotels and shadowed halls

Cheating requires hot showers
Scrub away the memories, set up the apologies
Perhaps deliver flowers?

Cheating requires a cross to bear
Hidden lovers should be kept under cover
The truth is just a selfish overshare
