Devil In Disguise

He's a devil in disguise--
One look too many into those eyes of Carolina blue
And you're mesmerized;
Words roll off his silver tongue
And go straight to your heart.
Before you realize what's going on,
He's in all your thoughts and dreams,
And you're longing for his touch,
His kiss, his love.
And if you give in to his sweet temptation
You'll be under his spell forever and beyond.

A new poetry form for me

Trying my hand at writing tanka, a Japanese poetry form composed of lines of 5-7-5-7-7 syllables.

Dark and gloomy day
Raindrops fall upon my cheeks
Blending with my tears
Sadness wraps me in blackness
And I long to see the sun.

Each day a new dream
To build a future upon
Each new dream a promise
Of many happy times for us
Through forever and beyond.
