Alot of energy is used to write this poem. It's strong and thoughful, and
flows while i read it - good descriptions and word choice. It's a wonderful
poem, eventhough i ususally don't enjoy reading poems. (:

I like the way he describes his feeling to his late wife, like in
"Tell-Tale heart" is mad, but tries convince himself that he is not...
Excellent tension-release... marvelous poem!

It's a heavy Poem. Since i'm not the biggest fan of Poems, it doesn't touch
me the way, it does to other people. But it's definatly a thoughtful poem.

Don't we all feel that this poem would be a cultural treasure if we could
understand it.

Sorry to tell you that we can't.

I think it was a great poem, though i would say that it is very long, and
sometimes it is mysterious, but all in all it was a good poem.

I think this poem is way too long. Even though the poem is written well,
you lose you interest to it because of the length.

This poem isn't about what we want but it is about what we have already
have had and have lost.Some say this poem is boring and others think it is
cool, but this is my opinion it isn't boring and it is not cool because
someone who feels like that is truly deep in sorrow, so when you read this
don't think about your feelings, feel the character's feeling and let that
be the true source of inspiration.
