Blurb

The times, though cold, have left me with nothing but a pen and paper. The stories that lay forgotten have reached for me and I for them. I offer them solace, and they offer me company. Together our stories entwine to create sweet poetry for many eyes. Together we will reveal ourselves to the world that so harshly left us behind.

I, Annabel Lee

T’was many and many a year ago

In our kingdom by the sea

That I, a maiden, by the name Annabel Lee lived with my king

I lived with simple thoughts, nothing else would please me

Then to love and be loved by none other than he


He was a child, and as was I

But I paid that no mind

Because we loved with a love that was more than a love

In our sea castle high


With the love of the Heavens on our side

Our love never died

He filled my cup, turn not a bashful eye

We never thirsted, our love bountiful

The Angels blessings surrounding us


But that was the reason in our kingdom by the sea

That soon my highborn kinsmen came to retrieve me

No tears emptied their sullen eyes as they came

Invading our kingdom by the sea


I could offer no struggle as they tore he and me

The Angels laughed as he fell to knees

How jealous they had been

Envy; what a putrid shade of green


The chilling wind came through the night

Killing and chilling me, given me no fright

But I, Annabel Lee, had one thing

The love of my king, my sweetest love

In our darkened kingdom by the sea


Humans, old and young, that pried

Angels that danced in the sky

Demons that swam in the sea

They could not keep him from me

His Annabel Lee


No force big or small could dance in our kingdom by the sea

Nor dissever his soul from mine

His dearest Annabel Lee

For my soul did not wander far

I became the moon that gave him his dreams


I stayed close, having no will to be separated from he

My dearest king of our kingdom by the sea

Instead, I rested in the sepulcher by the sea

My eyes always watching him

My king who now slept eternally
