Harmonious, it draws you near and offers you a love and warmth so sincere
You relinquish caution to the wind and surrender to that sweet love yet again.
Sadly you discover that melodic chord is being plucked by another selfish lover.
Rhapsody fades into that familiar bitter sorrow and you acknowledge that you must face tomorrow
A love stricken fool conquered once more by irony’s ruse karma’s honest score.

Is it good or is it bad? How is it we can be both happy and sad?

Elation soiled with despair; content and displeased don’t even compare.

The soul finds it too tart, yet, it is pleasantly palatable to the heart.

It rattles your thoughts and breath but strikes that wonderful chord deep beneath your breasts.

Harmonious, it draws you near and offers you a love and warmth so sincere

You relinquish caution to the wind and surrender to that sweet love yet again.

Sadly you discover that melodic chord is being plucked by another selfish lover.

Rhapsody fades into that familiar bitter sorrow and you acknowledge that you must face tomorrow

A love stricken fool conquered once more by irony’s ruse karma’s honest score.

Yet, you savor the bitter sweet on your tongue; that taste of pleasure and misery unified as one.

Until one day that familiar tang of defeat and sugar coating of deceit

Are washed away with a sobering swallow of dismay

For here again you are asking for your heart to be strummed, and many suitors have come

To heed your cry with promises of everlasting melody as the days go by.

And so the sequence begins to repeat, for what is bitter without sweet?

Melancholy forever bound with bliss; will you ever learn from this?

Love is all you seek, but will it always be bitter sweet?
