Pleasures in life!!

There are certain pleasures in  life
Glamorous n charming, enough to excite
Taste so finest, devouring’s a single bite
And fragrance so lovely, brings wonders in  sight.
.
Indulgence sure dire,
No second thoughts even slight
It’s a game well played, and fair from both sides
Yet no one’s a winner, earned was mere plight.
.
Why their beginnings so delectable
Why their ends are overnight
An ode to desire is too hard to rewrite
Where ups and downs both burned by spotlight.
