A Surviving Young Adult's Rants and Raves.

A Dream Within A Dream
by Edgar Allan Poe
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?

    i dunno why but i keep getting updates from you. mustve been friends back in the days… , its kinda “quiet” here… so here is some for your blog

    No one can see the pain that we hide,
    They’re happy for us to keep it inside,
    Our fear is our own; they don’t want to know,
    Why sould we involve them; why should it show.

    You live your whole life in confusion and fear,
    The need to feel something unbearably near,
    Half of you living, Half of you gone,
    And inside you know what your doing is wrong.

    The thing’s that can help, the thing’s that may heal,
    Are the flame or the blade and the sting of the steel,
    The destruction of skin means the death of your soul,
    But there’s nowhere to run when your living alone.
