I realize I shouldn't,
but I know that I could
and if I did
that it would feel so good.
Yet, I'm also aware
of the pain it would bring
so I'll try to resist,
try to do the right thing.

Nothing in particular, in this case. I was just writing about being tempted. Although, I have lived this poem many times.
