Edgar Allan Poe



A fascinating, intelligent, tragic guy. Its as though he were writing the original scripts for 'Criminal Minds.'

Here is a lesser known poem by Poe; what a cry for help.

A Dream Within a Dream

By Edgar Allan Poe
 

Edgar Allan Poe

1809–1849
Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow —
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.


I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand —
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep — while I weep!
O God! Can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
