This is an incredible poem. Im only in grade 9 but i have been fascinated
with his works since grade 7. He is an absolute genius and has influenced
me on the way I write dark poetry. For example....
Death, a figment of a desperate mans imagination. Life, a stain of pleasure
on our souls. The present leaves a crimson outline, of a man, who went
insane, over the pleasure of life.
They are very different, but the way I write sort of combines his type of
poetry, and the way i imagine it to be. He has influenced me on all my
writing, and is truly an unrivaled genius.

Hard as it is to disagree with a genius, I do... I genuinely prefer the
view point that eternal bliss is to be found not in death (as the shadow
traveler suggests) but within oneself. So while I agree entirely that the
quest over the entire Earth should have been fruitless, I really think that
Eldorado lies closer than Poe suggests.
