Beautiful, of course.

But, very sad.

I liked the little bit of alliteration you used. It seems to fit, to me, because you use the same sounds and the boys are the same and, I dunno. It seems maybe too far-fetched. lol. But, either way, the alliteration impressed me.

Lines like "ancient mosaic" and "blueberry wars" make it seem like such a pure, innocent romance and that only adds to the sadness.

The poem is well-written. It is sad but not just bluntly depressing which is what makes it so good. It's the cryptic nature of the piece that I find so impressive. The author's-note at the end was certaily helpful in understanding the poem but, I don't think it was necessary. Ambiguity is a wonderful thing and I think you should be more proud of your work because you really are an extremely gifted person. :)

slike everything you write. I love your stupid nature descriptions, colour associations, and language tool change.

Also, I was wondering. For my writing class we need to bring in a favorite poem of ours to share with the class. Is it all right with you if I bring in "Watermelon Moon"?

Good job.

Gah, this is gorgeous. Everything is perfect, and no, please don't stop using nature descriptions and color associations and language tools. That's who you are as a writer, or at least who you seem to be. If you're comfortable writing that way, then don't feel the need to stop. This is beautiful and I love that you use all of those tools to write your poetry. I am favoriting this. I don't even know that I can pick out a favorite line, but if I had to choose one, I do love love love, "I often find you wishing you were a metaphor." So perfect. Keep writing! :)

I never would've guessed that's what this poem was about. It's so beautiful though.

I have to admit though, I love 'colour associations and language tool references'

The last two lines are amazing.

I like this, even if I may not understand it completely. You have some absolutely gorgeous lines in here. The first stanza is my favorite. The quotes feel like they add in a personal feeling. Also, I like your "stupid nature descriptions, colour associations, and language tool references," as you call them. :)
