The Temptation of Easy

The temptation
of easy is always there,
curling into curves
needing to be filled.

It drops breathy promises
into ears already scarlet
at the thought of the thrill

of how much more smoothly
I can glide over the roughness
if I just ignore a few things.

But it would take a better liar
than I to convince myself
to lay back and close my eyes

when I know action,
my actions,
could make a difference.
