Daily Prompt:  Reprieve

“O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive” Walter Scott

If your lover you deceive

This person you will peeve

The web that’s mentioned you will weave

Traps you and you’ll later grieve.

The secret new love you received

Should not have worn it on your sleeve

And if to new love you cleave

Too late, regrets, there’s no reprieve.
