    Love lost?
    An intriguing and curious piece. I get the sense he's taking about a lost love. I'm wondering if that is why he lived alone in the woods? That's why I'm in the woods...😁 (Report) Reply

    Poe is the master poet- -he revels in words and their textures and their sounds and their rhythm and how they rhyme and the beauty of repetition and the depths emotions can reach (Report) Reply

    I have seen the days leave me as fast as they came, my heart has left me in shame. A love that I wanted to see, The love would not be. How can I save myself from this tormented heart? My body has fallen apart. I lie in bed, wishing I could sleep forever. My heart feels dead. Let me dream. Let me dream. This world is not what it seems. I am trapped with in the nightmares and dreams. Free me now from this life of horror. There is within my mind, The days of old, I wish I could rewind. This life we see, Is only an endless dream. I have seen the days leave me as fast as they came. I can not awaken from this endless dream. This world is not what it seems. (Report) Reply

    i think edgar allan poe, as an intelligent person he was, knew that everything in life, tangible or not, is not here to stay. it is destiny and things happen higher reasons of a supreme being. however, once you lose the ones so precious to you, you begin to doubt and question your faith and all the things you believe in.
