    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.

    Eagerly I Wished The Morrow;

    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...
