When beauty sings, ecstasy touches every sense;
Melodies linger, a soul’s loving recompense.
Prodigy’s curse, a heart’s passionate intensity,
Love’s pleasures come, but not without a hefty fee
In the maze of feelings, choices grow vast and dense
Hearts yearn for clarity amidst the suspense
Romance, the sly instigator, gives betrayal its chance,
Yet fleeting joys in passion’s dance often advance
In Love’s grand tale, belief may be a mere pretense
Victories are brief, their aftermath immense
