Old habits die hard,
No matter how hard you try,
Always resorting to what you used to,
And the worst thing you could do,
Unthinkable, unreasonable,
Attempts come back to haunt,
In your mind’s eye,
Just to taunt,
It hurts on the inside,
A throbbing pain,
But naming no names,
So there is no guilt,
No shame,
Just the shield you use,
Don’t reach for the noose,
It’s not what you want,
No, you just can’t…
