greenspun.com : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

I know it s kinda of topic,but I love some of POE s poems,but I indentifie with AXL s lyrics even more(I m only 16)and I always wondered what s your critical view on his poems(if i can call them that-Locomotive,Estrange,Coma).I know it s completely different category,but I guess your re a bit more qualified than average Joe.Please,someone respond,if just to tell he sucks.In hope someone will actualy get interested,I ll write one of his lyrics.


She s got smile that it seems to me reminds me of childhood memories where everything was as fresh as the bright blue sky now and than when I see her face she takes me away to that special place and if I stared too long I d probably break down and cry

sweet child o mine sweet love of mine

She s got eyes of the bluest skies as if they thought of rain I hate to look into those eyes and see an ounce of pain her hair reminds me of a warm safe place where as a child I d hide and pray for the thunder and the rain to quietly pass me by

sweet child o mine sweet love of mine

Thanks Andrej
