    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
