Wow thats beautiful.
After all, that's what she craves
To be your only scarlet rose
Lying on your grave
I love that part. Its all quite vivid and emotional.

A very interesting poem, in which the very first stanza captured my imagination. The rhyming structure is even, I like the feelings evoked by your use of repetition. I also like the reference to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, conveying a sense of tragedy though to me this poem seems to portray a different sort. Well done!

One of the better poems I've read. :D
It's very vague. It almost sounds like it's about a prostitute...It's pretty nonetheless, and the way you word it is captivating. The rhymes fit, and you've done a swell job of not letting them take over the poem rather than articulating the message by choosing words that rhyme rather than words that work. I do that a lot.
And yet it's still a little shadowy. It attempts to describe a feeling while providing a story behind it, but the story's somewhat veiled (too much for a proper assessment). The feeling is very clear however.
Yay.

This is a wonderful poem, I love the rhyme scheme and the partial refrain is very awesome. I've not read such a great poem from you in a long while, and this totally makes up for it. _ I have to say that this is beatuiful.

Oh, by the way, I've got the tenth chapter up on my story. Hope you enjoy it. _

Love ya,

ahh! You put this in your LJ too!
The "won't you be her Romeo...Juliet" bit is a little cliche... other than that, 'tis good!
I like the
"After all, that's what she craves;
to be your only scarlet rose
lying on your grave"
stanza. 'Tis pretty!
