    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

    As life goes on we miss so many things from our reach, like the golden sand through the fingers. (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.

    the second stanza suggests 'great dreams of great dreamers are never achieved, they're transcended'...he manages to hold the golden sand, which is desired, but only very few, and still they creep from his fingers and back into dream which he found very frustrating...o God can I not grasp them without tighter clasp? dream within a dream..one of the greatest (Report) Reply
