    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,
    In our kingdom by the sea.
    : an ode to my love, and Poe.

    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.

    very true in our modern world when true feelings are concealed.I was a child and she was a child,
    In this kingdom by the sea;
    But we loved with a love that was more than love-
    I and my Annabel Le

    This poem is well written and I like its realness of expressing love from childhood onward. It is also very sad and hard for me to imagine enduring such a loss. (Report) Reply
