    I remember having to choose a poem to recite in seventh grade. This was the exact poem I chose to recite. It was also the poem that got me interested in writing poetry in the first place. (Report) Reply

    Utterly beautiful. Just the thought Edgar puts into his poems leaves me feeling really lazy, even a bit down, at how I write poems myself. (Report) Reply

    It was many and many a year ago,
    In a kingdom by the sea,
    That a maiden there lived whom you may know
    By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
    And this maiden she lived with no other thought
    Than to love and be loved by me.

    so confusing my friend you make be,
    in this kingdom by the sea you make me wanna be,
    but the envy, the jealousy i can live with,
    but the the pain and the love,
    am scared of. and so should thee,
    i wish someone could convince me otherwise,

    If I were he, and you were she
    In this kingdom by the sea,
    And you also did perish,
    I would do as he did
    The love he did cherish
    In his kingdom by the sea.

    And lay with you still
    Beside you, I will.
    Still as the night, yet still,
    Until
    In our kingdom by the sea.
    : an ode to my love, and Poe.

    RU serious? Honest? For Real? Ya
    find romance in necrophilia?
    Dude's a sicko. Sleeps with cadavers.
    Should use his bed and let her have hers.

    Who has loved and couldn't let go?
    Who has loved and wrote it true?
    Who has loved and told me so?
    The dark poet, Edgar Allan Poe.
