Grey Prince

The Grey Prince of Romance, holds out his hand.
If you dance with him, he will steal your heart.
He is not from here, he's from a dark land.

Once you have loved him, he'll want every part.
There have been, many young girls led astray.
If you dance with him, he will steal your heart.

Like a skilled actor, he has a part to play.
Your color faded, with each smile and kiss.
There have been, many young girls led astray.

You believe nothing, can compare to this.
The touch of his hands, the feel of his lips.
Your color faded, with each smile and kiss.

You feel his power, the thrust of his hips.
Love that's imagined, a heart that turns grey.
The touch of his hands, the feel of his lips.

All of your colour, he will take away.
Love that's imagined, a heart that turns grey.
The Grey Prince of Romance, held out his hand.
Stealing your color, for his own dark land.

    Thanks Eileen. This is one of my personal favorites in this form.

    Well done on the fantasy element. I wonder why this happens time and time again. Girls going after people that don't even remotely care about them. I can't help but think of Belle chasing Edward (it's sad I have to quote Twilight here). She doesn't even really like him, in fact he could very well kill her... and yet she'll do anything to be with him no matter the cost. I hope I don't ramble too much when I'm commenting... it's just my head starts to float off when I'm reading something I like...

    Thanks I am glad you like it. I haven't seen or read the twilight series, perhaps I should check it out.

    Great Terzanelle Richard. I think this is a very difficult form but you have managed it masterfully.

    As per request, I have added the punctuation. You didn't answer if you are a teacher. Still curious.
