mantisstalker - I love the rhythm and the rhymes. It's pretty nice to read, and even manages to be funny. 

 

YoWid - I'm sorry, I just don't understand. 

 

Mura - It's nicely said, it feels poetic and conveys emotions pretty well, but the verses --and even some words-- are weirdly cut. Was it voluntary? 

 

Neko - Feels too prosaic to me. 

 

Metal Heart - It's good, really; be it the rhythm, the rhymes (except for 'daisies' maybe…), the way of telling, the humour… and most of all, its expressivity. 

 

Cupid - the rhythm's fine, the expressivity is good, but it lacks something to be really poetic. Still, I like it. 

 

Right now, I'm hesitating between mantisstalker's and Metal Heart's, I'll vote for the one with the lesser amount of votes :3.

"Gargling daisies" was really the only part I liked myself XD

 

Vote for Manty, he deserves it more than me.

@azer_moli Yes, it was entirely intentional. I think explaining why, at least while voting is ongoing, could possibly create an unfair advantage or set a strange precedent, so I will not.

I will try to vote, once I am free.

Spoiler mantisstalker - Pick and Choose

May I refrain from voting? My interpretive opinions are already plenty biased.

That is fully up to you... I don't think bias is a reason not to vote though. Well, you can't vote for your own poem, but that's it.

Anyone?..... Anyone?......

 

You, @Mura, are a gentleman and a scholar and a cat.

 

Now if you'd excuse me, I'd love to downright plagiate copy verbatim your magnificent piece of literary analysis to be used in my About Me page--don't mind if I do Xd
