Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.
Edgar Allan Poe
Let the Light Be The Guide
Light has no country no boundary.
It is omnipresent and omnipotent.
It only enters where darkness resides.
And as it so does, there it has purified...
From childhood's hour I have not been
As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.
From the same source I have not...
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;
Love me some Edgar Allan Poe

One of my favorite writers and two of my favorite poets xD
Beauty of whatever kind, in it's supreme development, invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears
Edgar Allan Poe
“Men have called me mad; but the question is not settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest of intelligence...”
― Edgar Allan Poe

I'm your lover
Come to my side
I will open
the gate to your love
Come settle with me
Let us be neighbors
to the stars
You have been hiding so long
in the sea...
Every breath I take it's a nervous breath to make, because you are all I think about asleep or awake.
To hold you is pure bliss, to feel you heart beat your lips are mine to kiss...
The question is not whether I believe in love it's whether I feel it in this dieing heart and though it's sad to say I don't. love is pain and leave you in a deep depressioning...
"Cause baby you are

And i want you to be
With me eternally..

In the Dark
In the dark,
Voices of confusion grow,
Distant memories smolder and burn,
Remembering a love long ago,

Over ocean and land
And endless sky.
But there is more to it than that.
Under pure white cotton sheets
In the still of night,
Only me... 😛

The flicker of a candle, bright and illuminating
---so easily blown out with a small gust of wind
The smile on ones face, bright and cheerful
--gone when heartache strikes

sometimes it's just stacked lines
sometimes it's banal and trite
I break the academic rules
and write songs to be sung by fools
Maybe I don't...
