glare adjust lurk terrorize siphon tattoo irregular 
novitiate (a novice of a religious order or congregation)
eristic (a person who engages in debate; conversationalist)
nyctophilia (a love or preference for night, darkness)
erogenous (producing sexual excitement or pleasure when touched)

Glare of the limelight
Been crowned the best speaker
Now an eristic clear winner novitiate
Won the title hands-down

Out to make an impact
Had to adjust his demeanor
Confidence issues lurk
Terrorized his conscience
That siphoned off his energy

Long afflicted with nyctophilia
Often erogenous in nature
Tattooed in his mind
Though irregular in occurrence
He was bent to overcome
Sought an outlet to counter

Found an easy way out
For those already in crying to get out
Those who were out like him
yearning to come in
That was the beauty of marriage
So he had been told

He decided to go ahead and
get married, anyway
If only he knew what he had
got himself into!
