Hell's Angel

March 17, 2016

With dark eyes that glistened like amber rain,
And a sweet smile as a clever mask,
He captivated me, but all in vain.
He seemed so perfect; why did I not ask?
I should have known he was hiding something;
Even the devil was once an angel.
For anyone with a pair of white wings
Can descend from Heaven and into hell.
He was an actor on his own stage,
Taking the role of being ‘mine’ awhile.
I wish that I had never turned the page,
And that I ignored his fake smile.
But I will get revenge and make him see
Without him, I’m as happy as can be.

Just out of curiosity, do the lines that do not have 10 syllables hold any more significance in comparison to the lines with 10?

I actually followed a template my english teacher gave me, because this was for a school assignment. It's a certain type of sonnet
