    A Dream Within a Dream

    I first read this is high school and fell in love with it. It was shortly after the break-up with my first boyfriend and the poem seemed to capture my feelings. All these years later, and after much study of life, the universe and everything, I do think that all we see or seem...

    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.

    "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 but a dream within a dream."

    "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.

    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...
