    The pain and brokenness of the languishing Mr. Poe produced a poetic jewel. Intriguingly beautiful. (Report) Reply

    Well, as somebody said sometime ago:
    The beautiful yet dark mind of Edgar Allan Poe
    This poem makes me sad and happy at the same time,
    He lost his precious love, but at least he had someone to love.
    Now his Annabel Lee lives forever by his side. (Report) Reply

    Poe immortalizes here in Annabel Lee his first love that he could not translate into earthly reality. Once again, no poet can overcome the personal impressions in poetry. Here in this poem -the unrequited love revives, and the poet treasures it as unearthly bliss. (Report) Reply

    The Immortal Love.

    It were a damsel she,
    And adolescent me,
    Sweet fifteen and tempest twenty.

    It was a miraculous chemistry,
    Of eye and heart,
    It was an invisible bond above artless art .

    It was a lease far above the Everest,
    More beneath the Specific Ocean,
    That like a grotesque sprang amidst us,
    It was all prevailing with no body and touch!

    She needs no name, so the me of mine,
    For we have the radioactive Unconscious,
    That defying Time and Space shines.

    While she denounced the world,
    And left me alone to care the treasure,
    I dug and dug my own well,
    And flashed she, when I reached the water level. (Report) Reply

    I was a child and she was a child,
