Someone I Should Not Want

Toxic. I know that’s what you are.
All the signs say I should stay far
from you.

But, tell me just what do you do
when your heart holds your sense hostage?
How does one shut down foolish thoughts,
when there is no switch they can spot?
Show me how to make my eyes see
all the reasons you’re bad for me.

Because
I want someone I should not want.
I want someone I should not want.

Damaged. That’s how I will end up.
This heart of mine just won’t let up
on you.

But, tell me just what do you do
when your ears can’t hear the warnings?
Deafened by the foolish heartbeats
that skip for my future defeat.
Just what do you do when you’re numb
and can’t feel the danger that comes?

All the signs say I should stay far.
Toxic. I know that’s what you are.
This heart of mine just won’t let up.
Damaged. That’s how I will end up.
All the reasons you’re bad for me.
Show me how to make my eyes see
I want someone I should not want.

I want someone I should not want.

    1. LOL… You’re killing me with the Stella! 😆

      Yeah, I think this happens to a lot of people, even the most strong willed person. Sometimes the heart pulls in directions we know it shouldn’t go, or we hoped it wouldn’t go, and it’s a pain trying to make it stop. Lol

      I’m very happy you enjoyed this poem, Tiffany, and glad to hear it was a page in your life story that has been turned successfully. ☺️

  1. Wow, Brandi!!! Another Grand Slam hit out of the park!! It seems your words are starting to be addictive for my eyes and heart!! A super post!! A great take on the old saying – “The Heart Wants, What The Heart Wants!” I loved this and lived it too! Also, reminds me of the other old saying, “Old enough to know better!” That Old enough thing still hasn’t kicked in for me!! LOL!
    Bellissimo, My Dear, simply Bellissimo!!
