    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.

    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

    Truly touching & empathic shot from Poe....guess this speaks in large volumes of a personal struggle where odds outweighed the positives at some stages of the poets life's encounter.great work from one of my all time great poets here (Report) Reply
