Scent of musk
Undulating in my nostrils,
Somehow I know it’s not mine.
Pretend that you have been faithful,
Infidelity is so unbecoming on you.
Cautious smiles flirt across your face.
I know that you know that I know the truth;
Only denial seems much less painful.
Now for the encore.

Nice acrostic, masterfully done.
Thank you very much. 🙂
I did not click the “like” button because the subject is too sad to like. I comment to say it is well written and conveys the message about the heartbreak of suspicion. I hope this feeling you describe is not something that you are actually experiencing.
I don’t like the topic particularly either, it just came to me so I decided to write about it. Fortunately I am not in this situation, but I know people that are and it happens far too often. Thank you sir.
I am glad you are okay. Your writing was too convincing.
Fortunately I have an imagination, it keeps me from having to deal with things like this first hand. 🙂
