What is Cheating?

by Kylie (follow)


What is Cheating?
My caption goes here.


Let's put a whole new spin
on this much maligned reality
which this society has taught us to consider 'an unwritten sin'.

What is 'cheating', is there a definition?
Is 'cheating' based on sexual expression
or is it based on what a person is feeling?

I hate this idea of 'cheating'
It is so old fashioned, demeaning and self defeating.

What is trust?
Is this believing
everything we are told,
with no deceiving?

What if deceit is there to protect
from things one would not want to hear?
What if it doesn’t diminish your relationship, but rather grows it, does it still lead to fear?

What is that fear about
Or is it really just self doubt?

Is this ownership of the other or is it freedom?
Freedom to go and come
Can one own another’s emotion?

Can one person be tied to another
With no intimate interaction at any time, with any other?

Intimacy is not just sexual.
It is verbal, confidential, fun,
comfortable, loving and sensual.

All relationships involve more than one
We all have many people in our lives in many ways
Is that 'cheating'?
Or, is it just how life is run?

Do we have a learned response to our modern day dance
of one woman/one man seen as the ‘perfect romance”
Which resides in a fairy tale book
but rarely in the real world, just take a look.

This whole perception is unreal.
There are few exceptions.
Can one man provide everything a woman wants or needs?
Can a woman do the same for a man?

Are there no seeds from each person which need to be watered
from elsewhere to survive, unslaughtered?

Does this equate to love or to jealousy?
Surely ‘love’ would make one want to see
one's “other” in happy and joyful company,
and be ready to welcome them home again with love and generosity.

Thanks to those of you who have read this. I would be really interested in your opinions as I had a lot of trouble actually getting this piece published. However, people I know who read it while I was writing it were all very positive. Feedback would be really welcome.
