    A love will endure anything
    Even death
    Even to eternity of sadness
    SO long as love motivates.. it is ok to be sad. (Report) Reply

    The Tell-Tale Heart is my favorite story by Poe but Annabel Lee is my favorite poem. I cherish all his writings. Nobody has ever written just like Poe and nobody ever will. (Report) Reply

    I agree with you. But I like his short stories more than his poems.

    This is a poem of how one can resurrect the beloved each night in the dream, and written with such simplicity of an
    aching heart, which so many of us have experienced - it echoes my two lines: Love is never wasted, even when it doesn't last. Panmelys (Report) Reply
