    Congratulations on the win!!! Your voice is so passionate here and I feel like I should now reach out and find what will really fill my soul, instead of just what people saw would fit for my life. This is why I should more often venture in the love section! A beautiful, exquisite write. Thanks for sharing... :]

    As a veteran of long distance relationships, stanza iii, along with the last line tugs at my heart strings. This is a great work.

    It's not too often I see poems broke up into section with Roman numerals, but I think it works extraordinarily well here, because of the emphasis the poet puts on certain words. I love the personification of midnight's light...I would classify myself as a night owl so I am captivated by anything having to do with midnight, I think it's beautiful...and this light is almost a guardian. Watching this person sing then almost merging into him/her. The "I need"'s were so strong here and different. I believed this is what this person truly needed, this song to be almost like their life support. The most haunting line was this "but stars shiver, like me, waiting for the moon to detonate", wonderful imagery that moves me to this place.....I feel as if I am limited by time. The ending was breathtaking- that loneliness is very tangible and the last line inspired me to reach out for more than I've been told. In a way, it's like we have to find what makes us tick even if others say we are not to be part of this or that. Thoughtful and gorgeous write!
