    I love the poem so much, because it reminds me of my own childhood. My father left my mother when I was six y.o. and I was brought by stepmother. I can't say she was bad. She was just alien to me. I did'nt wish to call her mother and was bitten by my father. There were three of us children. Myself, my sister and my stepbrother. I was always guilty if anything went wrong with us children and was always to blame. I was sort of introvert and different from others. I felt myself alone and abandoned. So much for that. The thing is I've translated the poem into my own toungue - Russian. And I hope that my countrymen will be able to understand and appreciate Poe's poems. (Report) Reply

    .......this poem causes me to wonder if he was an only child...
    it is a poem of childhood wonder and mystery
    ~And all I loved, I loved alone.
    Then- in my childhood, in the dawn
    Of a most stormy life- was drawn
    From every depth of good and ill
    The mystery which binds me still: ~ (Report) Reply

    This is a true masterpiece...! How beautiful...! I always have this particular poem in my mind, very present in my daily struggles with life and reality, when the lonely hours fleeting to me seem eternity - and I meditate the pointlessness of things... I am full of admiration for Poe's genius and for the inmense beauty of these lines, as they speak to my heart - they express my own feelings and perceptions, and my own personality. It is as if I was reading about myself... I love it! I truly love it... (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.
    From the same source I have not taken
    My sorrow; I could not awaken
    My heart to joy at the same tone;
    And all I loved, I loved alone.

    the best one...Edgar Allan Poe... my best one! (Report) Reply

    I know the world that Poe was trapped in.
    Unlike Poe I found a way out of the darkness of futility.
    I saw the light that put my demons to flight,
    Poe seems to have been content with the dark world of emotion. (Report) Reply
