Old Love and New
By Sara Teasdale
From “Love Songs”

IN my heart the old love
  Struggled with the new,
It was ghostly waking
  All night through.
Dear things, kind things        5
  That my old love said,
Ranged themselves reproachfully
  Round my bed.
But I could not heed them,
  For I seemed to see        10
Dark eyes of my new love
  Fixed on me.
Old love, old love,
  How can I be true?
Shall I be faithless to myself        15
  Or to you?
