I need help on paraphrasing

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

Could someone sort of tell me what his peom Alone is all about. I think I kind of get that it's about his child hood. But I sort of have to paraphrase line by line and I'm not that good at doing that. Any help would be great. Thanks!

It means that since he was young child ( early child hood hour) He did not go through the same experiences and grew up as other kids he dicouldn't get love or happiness from his mother and father ( common sospring. So he was numb in a sense from those experiences. He loved himself and no one else loved him so he felt ( all I've loved I have eloved alone) He was traumatized with sadness in his childhood that he couldn't get rid of it stained him. He has a lot of unanswered questions about his family and childhood that still haunt him. In the end he could only see the cloud and never the sunshine.

I hope this helps a bit!
