48 (who?)
Love; we all need love in this world,
But God, how do we tell if it's just lust for a girl?
The devil has my mind in a twirl,
Lord, do you feel what I feel?
Can you heal this sick appeal?

You always stop, you try to stop,
But you get addicted.
And when you think you've made on top,
That's when you drop,
It's back to hell; back to reality,
Can't you tell you're a monster loving lustfully?
Once you're done, there's nothing left but emptiness,
Where's this happiness that the media promised?

If only you knew it was a lie, all lie,
There's no love truer than the one in sky.
But why, why do I give in to the lies?
My heart and my mind are at different parts of life,
So God, I pray for that day you come a take my pain away.
A reflection.

I like the type of setup you wrote here. Plus the nod to speaking to God provides a lot of insight to the narrator, or maybe it's just free talking space. Either way, it's pretty agreeable that the writing in here is so far excellent and could use a little actions or something similar to the nature. You could try different styles that make it more understandable for those who don't comprehend. But I like what you wrote in all of this. I pretty much like all that you wrote! So to make a long story short, all four stars.
What do you think?

I know I have already commented but just the potentual that this piece could become a DD is so close I an just see it there. This piece related to me in a VERY personal way and as a writer that is how you grip the reader. The writer did a very good job at holding the readers attention and I have seen the number of veiws go up and up. I've been reading this over and over, not being able to get over the fact how good it is! The last line is what made me favorite and critique, or more PRAISE this work. This is an amazing piece and I plan to share it, and that is what makes good art.

That was such a rubbish comment I gave you. I'll try again.

I love your rhymes, especially 'twirl'. I find this word expresses a lot of sentiments (confusion, flirtatiousness, twisted things, dizziness) - I feel the same way at times, when trying to analyse my own intentions and motives. There is normally more than one side to everything, there always seems to be a risk and it's impossible to tell yourself what you were really thinking. It just isn't possible to judge yourself sincerely and fairly.

Still, if you are speaking from your own perspective - I think you are being too harsh on yourself. People were made this way - to lust, to mate, to carry on producing offspring. That's what I think anyway - I hope it doesn't offend you. We were made with temptations all around us, (the media is a massive one, I'm glad you mention it) so you can't help thinking about things that are wrong. But your challenge is to resist acting on them.

My favourite line: 'There's no love truer than the one in the sky.' It's so powerful.

If I had read this about a week ago I wouldn't have understood it, but now I've been there I get it and it's all true, this is a really good poem
