Nice! I'm forever angsting over poems that don't rhyme not being deep enough to be poetry, but this is really good. Beautiful imagery.

I like all of the metaphors you use here. They're really interesting and while I've seen a couple of them before, they're used here in a way that's different and refreshing.
I wasn't really sure about all the really short, choppy lines, and while I still don't really like them that much, I think they work for the style of the poem. I think you could take out the "(like your poisonous kisses)" line, though. It's sort of distracting and you could do without it.
Overall, love this poem. )

I thought that this would be a sappy cliche sort of thing. Since I've never read any of your writing of course. But this is the total opposite. I like how you show you can have your prince charming and he doesn't have to be perfect to other people. Hell not even to yourself but nobody is. All around I love the sense of reality you put into the poem. It finished nicely and kept me interested.

I fancy how you combined the fairy tale-like elements into reality such as emphasizing that there is a prince, flawed, but a prince nevertheless instead of the godsend Prince Charming. Well done.

Outside of some visual stuff (form of the piece) its a wonderful read. Very creative use of language. Good use of turning clichés on themselves and giving them a new sound.

Congrats on winning the Review Marathon. Here is your prize review:
This is an interesting poem. I like the analogy in the third stanza. I've never heard it used before, but it fits the topic so well.
There were a few lines that were a bit longer than the rest that I thought interrupted the flow a bit. Other than that, nearly flawless work as always!

i like it. it flows, its a poem in story format,i like those there fun and hard to pull off. which of course makes them more fun to try. i liked all the stanzas but the second though, it seemed choppy, in a way(dont know it thats the right word for it). a little to drawn out. try to say the same thing in fewer words. it would make it flow better.
Also thank you for the tip. i think it was suppose to say 'into' but i did write it at 2:30 in the morning so it doesnt surprise me if i did miss something. if you have the time i would like you to review my short story, A Mantra of Words. it would be much apriciated.

I liked this a lot. There was a lot of imagery and metaphors that made your poem very interesting. I especially like the one about going swimming right after eating. :D
Your summary says you're looking for some critique, though, so here it is:
"Always bellyflopping into ice cold water,
(like your poisonous kisses)"
I think the second line could be taken out. I found it somewhat interrupted the flow of your poem. And one more thing you could take into consideration:
"Only you have that effect on me
like a forbidden sweet"
I think you could combine these two lines together. Something like, "You're like a forbidden sweet" might sound better. That's not really my best, but you get the idea, right?
Besides those two things, this was a very sweet poem and I liked it a lot. It was better than I could ever do. :)

I think that by far, the first stanza was the best. In the first two stanzas you have the water image, and in the last few, that imagery was lost. I don't really like the line 'But you suck me in anyway' as you were describing hand imagery, such as being caught from falling, but then used the word 'suck' which I felt related back to the sweet image in the opening of that stanza.
Anyway, this is only one opinion, and don't get me wrong- I did like this piece!
Keep up the good work.

Very... logical. Dose that even make since?
| Hallie Stunt chapter 1 . 6/6/2008
the wording is a little awkward in a few places
but mostly this is a FABULOUS poem
i love the part about the swimming and fighting like hell to keep your head above water, and the poisonous kissed

At first I thought this was gonna be kinda bashing a guy, so when I realized [basically in the last stanza] that this was actually really sweet, it brought sort of an element of surprise into the poem. This is definitely something I think many can relate to, including myself. This is really good! Keep up the great work!

I really like this ]
Very well written.
| Satsumaimo chapter 1 . 5/27/2008
oh, wow.. this poem perhaps almost perfectly describes how I feel about the one I'm with. There's so much about him that people hate, but I love him so dearly. Like in this poem, he sucks me in and I feel lost without him.
I love this one.
