Flirting with the Devil

Temptations have me surrounded,

and keep on beckoning in the night.

My moral compass has been hounded-

for approval to disobey what’s right.

I’ve been flirting with the Devil,

he has his lusty hooks in me.

When in my thirst for sin, I revel,

as if I’m drinking from the sea.

I wonder why it feels so good,

and at the same time feels so wrong.

I like it more then I know I should,

my dopamine is flowing strong.

So, I close my eyes and reset now,

a deep inhalation clears my mind.

Will my rationale now disallow-

these pleasures of the blind?

One moment, my eyes snap open-

to see the truth upon it all.

Then blissfully in ignorance,

my heavy lids begin to fall.

Inner conflicts of mine – be damned!

Perhaps tomorrow I’ll do things right.

These sinful embers have been fanned,

To keep me warm for one more night.
