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 lov'd, I lov'd alone.
Then -- in my childhood -- in the dawn
Of a most stormy life -- was drawn From ev'ry 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 roll'd
In its autumn tint of gold --
From the lightning in the sky
As it pass'd 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.
Alone- Edgar Allan Poe
My name is Chris, and I quite obviously write fanfiction. I also write poetry, and you'll notice 3 of my compositions down below, one of which is now being published. I'm addicted to music, poetry, fiction, and philosophy. I'm 14, and live in the United States. I wish I could elaborate more on my life, but that would be incredibly boring, and time-consuming, now that I think about it.
