Simple Pleasures

what we enjoy
is bad for us

that least desired
is good to use

the balance is
cruel compromise

constricting the senses
quelling restless quests

simmering in every breast
never at rest

restraining what lies
within easy reach

is harsh and mean
becoming more as

time narrows the partition
between opposing poles

less though more we
gain in moments rare

of joy and bliss in
pursuit of simple things
