Giving Up What You Really Want - Poem by Josephine DixonBanks

Listen, sweet pet
You are shackled with regret
A past love binds you tenaciously
While you taste old memories voraciously

Trying to release antiquated passion to bring satisfaction
To yourself and your new love is suicide

It’s like wanting to be exposed but trying to hide
Wanting to live while attempting to die

That’s why it’s hard for you to discard and old flame
Your present love you’ve already claimed
A new relationship is your aim
Yet, your mind drifts to the past

Where you had what you wanted
Contentment you flaunted
While you bathed in the splendor of your woman
And love she bestowed

Listen, sweet pet
You are shackled with regret
A past love binds you tenaciously
While you taste old memories voraciously

Giving up what you really want is
Being unkind to your mind
Tearing apart your heart
Putting a sleeper hold on your soul

Giving up what you really want is like
Getting married and not loving your bride
Creating chaos and havoc deep deep inside

Listen, sweet pet
You shackled with regret
A past love binds you tenaciously
While you taste old memories voraciously
