    Can’t be emo for couple of renasos. Emo (for some reason) has this suicidal thoughts and mostly write down poems about depressive topics, not horror. Poe suffered a lot and all his feelings he pasted them in horror poems, stories (like many goths do also). He didn’t go saying oh, hate my life. I’m nothing or things like that. People often confuse emo with goth (which I truly hate) because they don’t know the meaning of either one. Emo comes from emotional.
