    Life is  vague,  like a mist..our existence is fleeting. Whether brief or longlived, nevertheless, it remains to be just a few grains of the golden sand, everyday slipping through our grasp..before we know it..it is almost/ or is over..and all our pertinent and pressing important achivements, hopes and dreams and aspirations (whether you are a great person, politician, a movie star or a nobody) during our lifetime is now nothing more than a memory, a myth or legend, like a dream with a dream, soon it is pffft finito, gone done, forgotten.

    I think Poe spoke of his inability to stop his constant losses, the many losses he endured.


    ...Through my fingers to the deep,
    While I weep- while I weep!
    O God! can I not grasp
    Them with a tighter clasp?
    O God! can I not save
    One from the pitiless wave? ... (Report) Reply

    I live near Poe Cottage, and when I see it, well, only Poe could express my feelings. (Report) Reply

    I think POE was telling us to be weary of the other side of the ocean of dreams. That sand in the hand tells us of it's waywardness. (Report) Reply

    Oh, my sweet dear Poe, you have parted from us now, but your memory, your Dream lives on. We have not forgotton your final ammends, we shall take shelter within your words, take console within your sleep, your restful slumber. The grains of sand shall not escape our grasp, yet someday, when that day comes, it must. Poe, dark and dreary Poe, we possess common grounds, I promise not to dissapoint you. (Report) Reply

    In a dream,
    I saw a caged bird.
    When I woke up,
    you were near me

    I love Edgar Allan Poe! He stirs up everything inside me and only few authors and poets have been able to do that to me. Especially when I can relate. (Report) Reply
