    My Favorite Author

    EAP has always been my favorite author. Did a couple of research papers over his short stories in high school and in college. He is the quintessential tragic genious. The fact that he couldn't cope with life is due to the very symptoms that allow his work to bleed genius. The...

    Poe's Most Profound Writing (imo)

    WHATEVER doubt may still envelop the rationale of mesmerism, its startling facts are now almost universally admitted. Of these latter, those who doubt, are your mere doubters by profession — an unprofitable and disreputable tribe. There can be no more absolute waste of time...

    A Dream Within A Dream

    Take this kiss upon the brow! And, in parting from you now, Thus much let me avow- You are not wrong, who deem That my days have been a dream; Yet if hope has flown away In a night, or in a day, In a vision, or in none, Is it therefore the less gone? All that we see or seem Is...

    I use poetry for an ice breaker. I am not the most articulate person. I am not all that handsome. I figure if women could see how I use words maybe they would like me.
