What do you think this poem is about?

For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.

All pleasure is of this condition

All pleasure is of this condition,
It pricks men forward to fruition,
But if enjoy'd, then like the humming Bee,
The honey being shed, away doth flee;
But leaves a sting, that wounds the inward heart
With gnawing grief and never-ending smart.
