    "All that we see or seem,

    is but a dream within a dream" I have this quote tattooed on my arm, and it never fails to bedazzle me. Edgar Allan Poe is definitely an amazing poet and he is by far my favourite.

    by Poe's cat.I had posted this story before. But due to it's hilarity I just had to post it again.On a night quite unenchanting, when the rain was downward slanting, I awakened to the ranting of the man I catch mice for. Tipsy and a bit unshaven, in a tone I found quite craven...

    Poe Ingredient

    If I could make myself the perfect (imperfect) soul mate, he would be a mixture of Edgar Allan Poe, H.P Lovecraft, William S. Burroughs with a dash of Sylvia Plathe for good measure.

    "But our love it was stronger by far

    than the love Of those who were older than we- Of many far wiser than we- And neither the angels in heaven above, Nor the demons down under the sea, Can ever dissever my soul from the soul Of the beautiful Annabel Lee." I can't get over how beautiful Annabel Lee is. Poe's love...

    Eagerly I Wished The Morrow;

    This particular excerpt from the Raven actually has inspired me to no longer be eager to to postpone things. Midnight arrives and you already hope that the day is done with and another morrow occurs. This is a fallacy in life. Do not be eager for the morrow. Be prepared and...

    Edgar Allan Poe: Life, Love And Poetry

    There is, but one man, whom by simply uttering his name, brings along visuals of the dark and dreary horror of the most secretive parts of the human psyche. Edgar Allan Poe; his reputation precedes him as a man with a grim imagination--with tales of terror, murder and petrifying...

    I am a lover of the written word. Poetry, whether two lines or twenty, can lift the spirit, engage the mind, sink into the soul, or express the deepest feelings from the heart.
