    I recommend my profile for some competition to Poe. Sublime poems without the pangs of sadness, mixtures of the urban and the sublime. (Report) Reply

    Nobody can save the other, we can only show our example and if they want to take it, it is good. We cannot play god. (Report) Reply

    An enchanting poem about death and parting, but also life itself.
    How right Poe is when he says All that we see os seem is but a dream within a dream.
    There is no end to the depth of its philosophical meaning. (Report) Reply

    Ingenious... Poe is my favourite author forever. Not only a true genius, but also, an unhappy creature who suffered his entire lifetime and died still young - and in very tragic and mysterious circumstances, and he was misinterpreted and attacked even after his death... He was poor and lonely, and all his life was a great tragedy - in some way his personality and his biography are very close to my own reality and I really love his writings, too. This one in particular, along with some other poems and tales of his. Although I generally like all his poetry and prose. (Report) Reply
