Can feel the pain and can relate to it. I often feel this way as I've been
looked down on practically my whole life. Beautifully written... it makes
me want to go up to Poe, slap him on the back, and tell him to cheer up...
that is if he were alive.

I like this poem alot. It has depth to it. It leaves me with chills when
i read it. And I dont mean chills from the creepiness of Poe, but just
that the poem is that sweet. Peace

Although Poe does use a variety of literary techniques in his writing, it
seems too short, superficial, almost written just to appeal to the masses,
not straight from the heart. Gramatically, its strong, but I find no
specialties about it. Just another mass garble of words that was thrown
together to become popular.

god this poem is so beautiful.i can really connect with both the poem in my
own feelings and with him and his feelings at the time.
