hey Sean! I liked the poem very much, it flows quite well but I think Martin is right with the verse of 'a developers mistake'.. for me that bit loses some of the magic Apart from that your poem has strong images that lingered with me till the end. Well done! HBH

First off, the imagery was strong, which I immediately liked about this poem. The second stanza, starting with 'A developer's mistake' seemed out of place when I was reading. I'd recommend either building off of it (since it seems that every other stanza builds up around it, rather than with it) , or removing it all together. Also, the last line 'Like a dream that sparkles but dims when the morning comes.' is a powerful thought. Maybe incorporating it's theme with more strength throughout the piece might serve to make it even more meaningful, moreso than just a singular poignant ending. Anywho, hope that helps.
