Default wife wants me to drop other woman..just be friends

After an emotional affair where I almost left my wife I discovered polyamory. I have struggled trying to explain it to my wife and she is just not approving of it.

I think I must end the "relationship" with this other person and just be friends. It's just too difficult not being able to express my love and it isn't fair to the other woman. I just don't see how to be just friends. I find myself questioning which love is stronger. Entertaining thoughts of being with just the other woman. I don't want to break up her marriage though.

So how do stop the way I feel? Can I "just" be friends or am I just postponing the inevitable. What happens when one day we are alone and we can't control our feelings? Will we do something we regret? or maybe don't. or do I push this more with my wife and risk losing her?
