Familiarity Breeds

You know how whenever you get
A new pet*
It seems weird for a bit
Till you get used to it
Then you don’t even notice it’s different
And yet
Now the old one feels wrong
Though you’ve had it so long
That it should be familiar instead of
And where once you felt love
You now just want to shove
It away?

*Stupid autocorrect! I meant car.
