Edexcel english lit, poetry

Hi, I do GCSE Edexcel English lit, and during my recent mocks for poetry (relationship) I did 3 comparison paragraphs, but they were pretty long and detailed, each paragraph too up a whole page. If I do this amount in my GCSE, will I still be rewarded a grade 9, or would the examiners prefer shorter and concise ones.

What would say the good amount would be to secure a grade 9?

If I do need to write concise, how can I do this for comparison in paragraphs for poetry? Its kind of difficult since you're expected to include so many things.
