I finished this poem, then said "wow." After "wow" I said, "I hope this girl does not write from experience." I'm too dense to really see what poets are getting at sometimes, but this time it can't be good. Perhaps your 3rd stanza could read: Go on and frown at me, bash me in till I'm "so gourgeous"...

Oracle

A dead time long forgotten now, a moonlight glows where clouds allow My hidden shadow wanders, ponders, who to kill, and how...

Ah...sad is the day when you can't simply let the words of George Herbert sing for themselves. In an essay you'd have to explore every inch of it and pull it apart, to really "interpret" it.
