TEMPTATION

You tempt me

You invite me to want what is unwise

It would be legal—probably…

But it might not be safe for either of us…

Your sinuous body and lithe muscles are profoundly alluring

Your face is intensely edgy and rebellious—both seductive and angelic…

I have crafted age-related boundaries precisely to guard against this kind of temptation…

With painful stains in my past, I want to assure myself of full integrity in the present…

So I will let my senses enjoy this temptation

I will enjoy this platonically and then I will move on

I choose integrity over impulse and transparency over prevarication

I will be strengthened internally by my ability to handle this moment with intentionality and psychic grace…

This is my prayer…
