Rant aside, I much prefer to write parallel poetry (like in Hebrew or Chinese) that can be translated into many languages without losing much beauty. My question is: would this be acceptable poetry in a VN? At least one route involves characters writing much poetry to each other, and other will probably also have poetry in them as well.
A sample of my parallel poetry (from Highschool) is provided for consideration.

SOME HAVE CONCLUDED THAT DYED HAIR LOOKS GAUDY
BUT I HAVE CONCLUDED THAT THIS IS NOT SO.
FOR LOOKING UPON THY RAINBOW-COLOURED TRESSES,
I AM PUT IN MIND OF KANDIVE THE GOLDEN.
If writer can't sync with art or if art can seem to "grow old" per section then poetry is just...text.

Writing poetry for a VN shouldn't be any different from writing poetry in a letter or a book.
I think all types of poetry are okay in VNs, so your parallel poetry would be okay too.
Just be aware of the presentation: the pacing in NVL format might be better than the default ADV format.
