Tanka Contest

skin to skin so hot
shyness takes over, fear rules
love cannot be stopped
love rules over fear, which wins?
the winner decides who won

    Mandy, this is very nice. It's for a tanka contest? I believe you need one more line of seven syllables at the bottom. Tanka have five lines. Luv, Andrea

    if it's real love, it wins over fear...but if not then perhaps fear will prevail... nice tanka, good luck with the contest :)
