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.
