Your eyes tell the story of a time. Where birthmarks and footsteps were how we told eachother apart. Good eye, sniper. I'll shoot you out. The words you scribbled on the wall, decribe the friends you didn't have. I called you when the time is right, to a Favor Manor.
Most people dont really understand that in Poe's poems that he didnt think that Angels were good. So in alot of his poems you get thinking that he is evil or hates God. Well if you like depressing tragic lyical poems then you will love Poe's work.
