Alone - Poem by Edgar Allan Poe

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.
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:
From the torrent, or the fountain,
From the red cliff of the mountain,
From the sun that round me rolled
In its autumn tint of gold,
From the lightning in the sky
As it passed me flying by,
From the thunder and the storm,
And the cloud that took the form
(When the rest of Heaven was blue)
Of a demon in my view.

    So very Gothic and so very Edgar Allan Poe. Although not a poem I am drawn to, he describes his childhood traumas and anguish in a very powerful way that builds recognition and empathy in the reader. (Report) Reply

    No demon was ever in my view, nor did I remain with 'that aloneness feeling for more than a season of my life. I did identify with this poem 'to a point', but by the grace of God, I overcame whatever silenced and rendered me lonely for the first several years of my life. I am no longer lonely and have an energetic and happy life. (Report) Reply
