Poem - Habits Die Hard

The poem “Habits Die Hard” was inspired by the quote, “I’ve decided to never fall in love again.  It’s a disgusting habit.”, from the 1965 movie Pierrot le Fou.


Habits Die Hard

Falling in love became routine
another day spent in want betrayed
by the nature of the response
to adoration so cruelly trounced

defeated by something close
to addiction if truth be told
that need to feel so much more
than affection of the slow burn

instead the flames consume the source
while hardly scorching the other ones
those targets of passion’s siren call
unable to hear the desire’s resolve

the apt response is to deny the urge
falling in love at last purged
habits die hard when they’re set
this one discarded with sad regret.
