My Heart For You

"I lay open my heart for you..." - by Poet Love is blooming in my heart for you, I dedicate my pen's art for you; Watching you smile, my joy overflows, I've been hit by Cupid's dart for you; Together we can build our love home, Let me decorate life's chart for you; You're my mesmerising Juliet, Let me play Romeo's part for you; Without you, I feel hollow within, For I've set my heart apart for you; Your shy eyes meet mine and there I see Your love for me, a new start for you; My sweetheart, you are my little doe, And I'm Alexander Hart* for you. 02.27.2022 9 syllables per line * A fictional name used here, because the ghazal form requires it. (no offense meant to anyone, dead or living) {My ghazal is an outpouring of love, though not melancholic as normally required}
Theme: Love For Constance La France's "G - Give me a new poem - any form" contest

Jo, I'm not really sure how the form is written. I have tried only one poem and won.. But I feel I wasn't really equipped to do it, so I just wrote a Rhyme for the contest. What I read sounds like a very good entry with great flow.
