    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.

    "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...

    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...
