Fly Away With Me

Come and fly away with me, take a journey
lets see the stars, and touch the sky
lets just fly away
and never look back

come and fly away with me, don't you trust me?
just reach into my capsule
lets wonder the cosmos in my yellow rocket ship
have you ever been to mars?
its better than here
with him

come fly away with me mommy
Won't you come and blast through galaxies
travel lightyears
don't you love me?
just trust me mommy
he cant hurt us
not in my yellow rocket ship

so come and fly away with me mommy
we'll be safe
in outer space
with my little yellow rocket ship
and you to keep me safe

fly away
and be happy
i love you mommy
won't you come
and fly away with me?

that you have not gained much in the way of critique here on this site. I think that is what you mean by Neopoet has not done you any favors. I am glad that you feel like that. There is a price to pay for getting critique and suggestions to make your work better! You have to return the favor! I am trying hard to get that across to people here. Of course, there are those that just want someone to say that "Oh, this is soooo good, I've never read anything like it, you don't need any help, but I don't think that is you. I do not know how so many of your works got by me, without critique. Unless I was sick and in the hospital.
However, if you will commit to giving at least one critique of another's work, for every poem you post, I will promise to give you my best effort.

1] You need apostrophes in [Let's]
2] Use capitals where they should be used. I know, that is the 'Advent Garde' thing these days, but it seems lazy to me.
3] Your title is okay, but maybe a bit bland, not something that jumps out at you and drags one in.
4] I like the child-like wording and the effect is good.
5] Your pacing is good and makes it seem like you are struggling to find the right words to convince Mommy.
6] The theme is one that resonates with many people and has no trouble holding my interest.
7] Your logic is good and the theme flows well.

Comments and critique are vital to this site!
Even if you just say: I liked this story or your spelling
of a word is wrong, take the time to write a line or two
and comment. Your fellow poets will thank you!
