A Dream Within a Dream: My Writing Style

A Dream Within a Dream

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?

-- THE END --

for Orpheus. Eurydice. Hermes. And Barbara with infinite love as I falter on the road to Ithaka

That's a very inspiring poem by Edgar Allan Poe. He's my favorite writer and poet. I sink well into his thoughts that prelude into darkness of night, of sin, of soulless regard. An epithet of all brooding statures of life, in life--I share his burden. You should see his biography. The man was an alcoholic, and lost his wife to drugs. All the dark phantoms of the universe were conspiring against him in a massive scale. His madness blinded him to the very end. Made him, him...

But I regard him mad but genuinely true. Mad but a genius. Mad but with a reason.

For me, the man's a genius. Up 'till tomorrow, he'll be an inspiration, to say the least. I use a writing style just like his if a fiction would require elements like in his works.

There is also another very intriguing writer called Oscar Wilde. He wrote 'The Picture of Dorian Gray". A very mystifying story of aestheticism, a bridge between hedonism and sadism, to cause pain in the name of beauty. I like the writing style because it borders the edges of sinful tastes and luxurious beauty conspired together into a beautiful mirage of the world. Hahahahaha! I sound like the dude already!

I honored them my first post because they're two of the artists that contributed to my style.

They are two whom I never met.

There is also two people that influence my writing aura that lived with me for many years, and continue to participate greatly in improving my world and my writing. My grandma and my mum. They mean the world to me, as I to them. They inspire me the most and are named the subjects of my ideas, emotions, well-being. They are the 'main support of my life'. Without them, I couldn't exist as I am.

Insanely me ;)
