    Edgar Allan Poe, he never fails to impress me with his mischievous, though this poem is very deep and dark. Many ways this poet is important to other poets and readers. As I wish one day, to be like him.....which is probably not going happen because he's one of a kind.: D (Report) Reply

    Edgar Allan Poe....a perfect poet. As I wish one day to be good as him, which will probably not happen since he's a pure (dark) genius. (Report) Reply

    From childhood's hour I have not been
    As others were; I have not seen
    As others saw; I could not bring
    My passions from a common spring.

    A full expression of human misery.

    They all wash over me with pitying eyes, they think that I don't see.
    Yet they are only crude jagged faces on the canvas of my dreams.
    Empty their wishes float, as they seem to pray my safe return.
    How can they know the fever that within this prison burns.

    This poem, give me a minute to scratch my head, and wonder what in the world, are they analyzing poe for, isn't it just what words describe, of course the intent of his thought, or his heart, I merely a man myself, can not see, no i don't know what Edgar meant to say, but I do know what his words expressed, he was very lonely, and to Edgar, loneliness, was as evil, as believing heaven would put a demon where an angel once stood, yep that's just my opinion of course.
