Dear Poe

Dear Poe, I have never "dreamed a dream within a dream" nor have I ever shut myself into a kingdom by the sea. Nor have I ever known a girl by the name of "Annabel Lee", But the eyes of a "Raven" do burn like a demon deep within me. And the "Bells" do remind me that I am "alone" as I lie by myself wishing I had a beautiful bride which Poe named "Annabel Lee." Nevermore, shall I endure a life that is but a dream. Nevermore, shall I pray to a God we both adore if he refuses to answer me, And this is the reason as Poe well knows that love remains but a Dream.
