When he cheats

When he cheats on you
Don’t blame yourself
Feel like there is something else you could have done
Like maybe if my lips were shaped like so
Cheekbones more defined
His eyes would not have strayed
When he cheats don’t question yourself
Diminish your sense of self-worth
Feel like there is something wrong with you
Replay in your mind scenes where you should have seen him slipping away
When he cheats on you
Look in the mirror with your head held high
Eyes determined and heart set on healing
Place your hands on your face with the softest caress
Remind yourself what real love feels like
And don’t put up with anything less than you deserve
