Line(s) of the Day #EdgarAllanPoe

Edgar Allan Poe sketch

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 loved, I loved alone.

The opening lines of the poem Alone (1829), written by tortured Gothic genius Edgar Allan Poe when he was 20 years old.
