    In Poe's dark forbidding night
    When there can be no sight
    Of the dangers lurking near
    Of which there is much to fear.
    But in the inner peace of Poe
    With the scratch of pen, his words flow
    Capturing his tortured thoughts in kind
    A parable, to escape the world that binds,
    To set him free to dream
    Of that which is not as seem.

    As he awaits the judgement day.

    Here avow means to acknowledge openly without shame,
    and deem means to judge or consider..

    Its difficult to part with someone be it dream or reality...
    After all, every thing is illusion..and we are perplexed... (Report) Reply

    I don't know the background of the poem yet definitely poe would have been in a great agony when he wrote this poem. This is such a great work of Poe as noone can escape its charm. Great poem with a lavish style of writing. (Report) Reply

    Gifted, imaginative, and true, Edgar Allan Poe knows how to bring a poem to life. The vigor of his words and their meaning reaches beyond the screen and touches the soul. (Report) Reply

  • Jason Bradley (5/23/2010 6:45:00 PM)

    In that a dream is fleeting and hard to remember, Poe seems to be relating his feeling of desperation and sadness at the passing of time, and comparing it to a dream. He wishes he could save just one moment of his life, or the life of another. 'Take this kiss upon the brow, and, in parting from you now-' (Report) Reply
