    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...

    "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.
