The sun like a diamond on his russet skin
The smell of his cologne carried in the breeze.
The dark mystery in his eyes so thin,
Thanking god I came to the Florida Keys.
His name is unknown to me; I have no clue.
It’s importance is little, I do not care.
His smile like porcelain as birds above flew.
But all I could see was his bronze shaggy hair.
His eyes glittered as he looked into the sun
that set atop of a painted sea.
There I was thinking he may be the one,
even though together we cannot be.
For it does no matter, we are here now.
We’ll be together someday, someway, somehow

Nice poem i see you used the abab cdcd efef gg pattern for the rhyme scheme. This is the easiest way to do it out of tye other 3 or 4 ways. Anyways congrats.

ABAB,CDCD,EFEF,GG Do you know what this is? Your rhyme scheme, kind of like how I do mine. This looks more like one of my typical poem`s rhyme scheme, though: ABCB,EDFD, etc... Great job, you did well. Love your ending prose and everything up to the top. I also love the use of language and how you developed the them. Forgive me if I sound too technical, what I`m trying to say is, "You did an amazing job! Congrats":-)

I love this and I love the "singers write songs about the end I write poems about the beginning" thing:)

I can feel this poem. I understand this situation with this person.
