Sure you can!  Just indent the subsequent lines so that they're
horizontally aligned with the first character of the "term".

For example,

    : first term : first definition

    : second term : second definition

      this paragraph is also part of the second
      definition, because the first character of
      each line is aligned with the term above it

      yet another paragraph in the second definition

    : third term : third definition

For an online example, see
