yes... it should be fine...

From a database design end ... do you need it to be longtext (big overheads on searching/retrieving)? Below are the lengthts of text fields...

TEXT      A string with a maximum length of 65535 characters.
MEDIUMTEXT      A string with a maximum length of 16,777,215 characters.
LONGTEXT      A string with a maximum length of 4,294,967,295 characters.

obviously yopu will need to give it a name like any other field... and reference it with $_POST['myrext'] or $_GET['myrext']

<textarea name="mytext">
