Duality

Forever fades, and only this remains:
The lilt of love's disarming melody.
Entrancing, this insidious refrain:
Mysterious in its simplicity.

The lilt of love's disarming melody
A gentle cadence to her artless grace;
Mysterious in its simplicity,
The sensual perfection of her face.

A gentle cadence to her artless grace,
Resplendent in her elegant repose --
The sensual perfection of her face:
Her skin, like snow; her lips, a winter rose.

Resplendent in her elegant repose,
In careless grasp the hearts of men she holds --
Her skin like snow, her lips a winter rose --
Ephemeral as frost -- and doubly cold.

In careless grasp, the hearts of men she holds;
The chill of vengeful laughter fills the air --
Ephemeral as frost, and doubly cold,
Her touch evokes a chorus of despair

The chill of vengeful laughter fills the air:
Entrancing, this insidious refrain;
Her touch evokes a chorus of despair --
Forever fades, and only this remains.
