Well, you've got a simple markup. So what you're really doing is hacking up a parser for it. And we all know what happens to hacks . . .

So, in the interest of elegance, ease, and extensibility, I'd use an existant parser generator, and keep the language definition around to extend. I'd use Parse::RecDescent myself, but use whatever you like of course.
