This poem is a good example of the holy in poetry as it captures the numinous
http://www.scribd.com...

Numinous
http://en.wikipedia.org...
"Numinous /G2;njuH0;m=6;nəs/ is an English adjective, taken from the Latin numen, and used by some to describe the power or presence or realisation of a divinity.

The only thing that poem is a good example of is what people who don't seek help for their mental illnesses end up producing for a living.

Burden of proof is on Pro as they are making the assertion.

"Burden of proof is on Pro as they are making the assertion."

I have given proof ie the poem which it is assumed you have read
upon which you said-without proof

"The only thing that poem is a good example of is what people who don't seek help for their mental illnesses end up producing for a living."

by saying that you are admitting you have read the poem and disagree with my assessment
so now give us proof of your claim

but seeing you are afraid to commit yourself to proof
I will give some examples of the numinous in the poem and I will hang you on your own words
you said
"that poem is a good example of is what people who don't seek help for their mental illnesses"
so its is up to you now to prove these lines =below-indicate mental illness -if you cant then I must win the debate

"I can see that beauteous form that ravishing face of intoxicating bliss let me be drunk on that face reveal reveal that face to me that I can into intoxicated bliss drown in the ineffable sublimity of that gorgeous face of overabundant ravishment "

"revel that face upon which all mankind longs to see that face that all the worlds upon longs to gaze oh the tears of I be my very soul that melts like candle oh beloved I be melting for thee from my longing for thee oh that thee would revel that face that face of incomparable beauty that I may kiss "

No. Go find a poetry forum and spam your poem there, THEY will critique your writing, not people here... on a debate site... for debates... not poems...

"There's really not much I could say that would be GOOD about your writing"

Why is it horrible? Let's see...
First, the font size is over 9000 and the font itself is not pleasing.
The format in general is... well, there's not really any format there at all.
No punctuation.
Terrible grammar.
There are random "big words" thrown in, likely in an attempt to make yourself sound smarter, but it does the opposite.
The story is boring.
It's supposed to be erotic, yet, I don't have a boner right now.

The list can go on and on and on. There's really not much I could say that would be GOOD about your writing.

I've said it probably ten times before, but I'll say it again. This is a debate site, not a poetry critique site... if you want critique on your writing, go join a poetry forum. Not to mention that advertising is against the site rules.

Stop spamming your horrible "poetry". How you're not banned yet is beyond my comprehension, as I know that several people have reported every one of your "debates".
