    "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...

    I think writing things down lets you really express your true feelings, well at least for me. Cause no arguing comes of it and the wrong words don't blabber out of your mouth.
