    If you don't understand that you've traded any chance of living for your 'craft', then shut the fuck up you don't get dieing for life. Giving everything because you don't have a choice. Your DNA makes you write. Makes you die. (Report) Reply

    Hey Celine if you cant say anything positive about E.A.P. then please dont say anything, He is amazing he writes with such Imagery and the darkness in his heart became the pure gothic writing, American Literature. So if you don't like him why are you here reading his work (Report) Reply

    Celine, you are ridiculous! I LOVE E.A.P and I have since elementary school. Even now I am currently using his poems for my high school forensics. Don't be jealous of his writing. Whta poet would you suggest? (Report) Reply

    I gotta hand it to Edgar Allen Poe for this poem, I absolutely loved it with all the scriptural truths in it and how I could tell about what he was saying especially when he mentioned Angelo, I mean just think about it.... A man of God adoring his God's temple and hearing how he talked about God's Temple with a shepards heart was mind boggeling! ! ! ! Loved it! ! ! (Report) Reply

    The word Al-Araaf is an arabic word refering to a place that people will be placed(neither heaven nor hell but in the middle) when there good and bad deeds are equal. This is mentioned in the Qura'an which is the muslim holy book. In arabic it is actually written as ا ل أ ع ر ا ف . (Report) Reply
