That Seductive Mistress

There is a certain beauty in despair, and to allow oneself to be seduced by her is pleasurable.  To be held in her unrelenting embrace, lulled with the promise of sleep and dissimulation is to feel a bliss greater than all mere human modes of sensual enjoyment; sex, music, and bacon included.  But her song is a siren song, which pulls us off of the narrow path.  There are many temptations that lie upon that path, and we will likely fail in the end without ever attaining that goal which we seek, but we must resist her song: for to give in to her is to guarantee our failure.
